Speaking at Women’s Day celebrations for Kamuli district on Saturday March 22nd, 2014, the Speaker expressed concern over the lack of sermons related to family income generation.

“I am pleading with you as the clergy to adjust your sermons in churches and mosques. We come to church, read the bible and you send us home. You want us to raise funds but you don’t know how we earn our income .Take an interest in the income generation of your parishioners. Some of your followers are doing nothing,” she said.
