Journalists in Kasese district have been challenged to stick to their professional code of ethics if they are to maintain their reputation in public.
The challenge was sounded this afternoon by the Bishop of South Rwenzori Diocese, the Rt. Rev. Nason Baluku while addressing hundreds of mourners who had thronged Messiah Radio Chapel for a requiem service of Denis Mumbere, a reporter and presenter at Messiah Radio who passed on yesterday after being involved in a road accident.
The prelate who clearly understands the role of Journalists said they need to present themselves well before the community so as to be respected.
In his sermon to the mourners, the South Rwenzori Diocesan Director of Missions and Evangelism, the Rev. William Muhindo Musisi, encouraged the people to live prepared lives arguing that God has set plans for each and every person.
The Church Minister, who based his sermon on the theme, “Our days are counted,” that was drawn from the Biblical Book of Job 14:01 explained that no one knows the day and date on which they will die apart from God.
In his remarks, the Kasese District Chairperson elect, Eliphaz Muhindi Bukombi also discouraged the general public from joining bad peer groups.
According to him, some bad peer groups influence the people to get involved into acts that eventually ruin their future.
Also, the Outgoing Kasese Municipality Mayor, Godfrey Baluku Kabbyanga Kime, described the Late Denis Mumbere as his friend who would continuously visit him to get information.
He used the same podium to encourage the electorate to support the incoming leadership irrespective of the political parties they subscribe to.
