Kabale – The Former Kabale Municipality Member of Parliament, Andrew Baryayanga Aja, has warned Ugandans against bracing acts of sectarianism tribalism, religion and Nepotism that had manifested in the previous regimes.

Baryayanga says that he is dismayed by the increased acts of divisions rooted in the religious and political arena mostly in Kigezi saying that Ugandans risk repeating the tribal and religious wars that used to be manifested in Kigezi in the 1970s and 80s unless they stop the religious and tribal sentiments while addressing issues but he asked them to unity despite different religions and tribes.

He said this on Sunday at St Philip’s Bugongi Estates Church of Uganda Parish, as Mothers Union members celebrated Mary’s day with thanksgiving. Mary’s day celebrates Mary’s motherhood of Jesus as a reminder of the role she played in the salvation of humankind.
