“Fishing the fishermen,” describes what happened today at Bukungu landing site on the shores of Lake Kyoga as hundreds of people, mainly fishermen, responded to an altar call by the Archbishop of Church of Uganda, The Most Rev Dr Stephen Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu.

Bukungu landing site is in Bukungu Parish, Buyende Archdeaconry in Buyende District, at the edge of the Busoga Diocese.

Archbishop Kaziimba, in his sermon, made reference to Jesus Christ calling fishermen to follow him, saying, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). He urged the fishing community to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, and hundreds responded to the altar call.
