The Archbishop of Kampala, His Grace Paul Ssemogerere, graced the occasion, commending the efforts of the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) for organizing such a meaningful event.

In his remarks, he expressed his distress at seeing children being used on the streets for begging and emphasized the need for compassion and action to end the exploitation of children.

“We need to be compassionate and stop using children for our own interests. We need to fight this abuse. We need to start acting, talk less but do more. Jesus did not talk much but acted a lot,” remarked Archbishop Ssemogerere.

He went on to salute the parents of the children with disabilities and commended KCCA for utilizing funds effectively. “I will join you in making the shout to the government to give you more money,” he added.

The Archbishop challenged all city dwellers to utilize the Christmas season for positive change, stating, “We need a neat city, we need a clean city. Let this Christmas help us to be clean outside and inside for the good of our country.”

Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, in his address, shared the city’s commitment to inclusivity. He highlighted the limited number of schools for special needs children and mentioned ongoing efforts to formulate the “Protection of the Rights of Persons with Disability” ordinance.

Lukwago also brought attention to land issues involving faith-founded schools, emphasizing the need for resolutions with the founding bodies of these institutions

The joyous spirit of the festivities was enhanced by the enchanting Christmas carol performances of the St. Cecilia Choir from Rubaga Cathedral. Their melodious touch created a magical atmosphere that resonated with the true essence of the season.

Additionally, Da New Eagle’s Band contributed to the festivities with a stellar performance, further elevating the overall musical experience and leaving a lasting impression on the hearts of those in attendance.

The event brought together a diverse assembly of politicians, urban residents, and supporters, symbolizing a united endeavor to transform Christmas into a time of happiness, inclusiveness, and constructive transformation in Kampala.

As the event concluded, the Lord Mayor treated his guests to a sumptuous feast, adding a delightful climax to the day’s festivities.​
