He said his family is large enough with beautiful and knowledgeable members, most especially ladies, who have been around with him for the time he has spent in politics.

“Even if I don’t get other votes from other voters my family is big enough to make me win any election,” said Mbabazi.

The Prime Minister, who is thought to be hatching plans to stand for President in 2016, did not divulge more details.

While Mbabazi has in the recent past denied reports that he will stand for the highest political office in 2016, observers say he could give it a shot.


Mbabazi, who is well known for speaking elaborately on government programs during public functions, decided to restrict his speech to heap praises on Rev Ruhindi.

The Premier, on behalf of Reverend Canon Ruhindi and family, expressed commitment to supporting the completion of the Revival hall at Kigezi diocesan headquarters in recognition of the role played by the Revival movement among the Kigezi people.

Mbabazi handed over Shs21.6 m as family contribution towards the completion of the Revival hall to Bishop George Bagamuhunda of Kigezi diocese, pledging more support to complete the work estimated to cost Shs40 m.

The family celebrated the long life God has granted Reverand Canon Ruhindi and his wife Everina who are now 99 and 84 years respectively.

The Prime Minister’s wife, Jacqueline Mbabazi is one of the nine daughters of Rev. Canon Geresomu and Everina Ruhindi.

They were also celebrating God’s blessings upon the family and the successful travel of Canon Ruhindi and wife to the holy land of Israel.

Word of God

Mbabazi said he had discussed with prominent sons and daughters of Kigezi the need to recognise men and women who have been instrumental in spreading the word of God in the region.

The revival movement which spread across the country from Rwanda through Kigezi brought about spiritual renewal and salvation among Christians and also promoted education and development in the region.

Premier Mbabazi said, although his father in-law was not a rich man, he had invested all the resources he had in educating his children, and God had responded by blessing his family abundantly.

“It’s right and proper therefore, to have this thanksgiving service to God for the blessings he has bestowed upon this family in many ways,” Mbabazi said.

He also said he was planning to move a motion in Parliament for the country to have a national thanksgiving day in honour of the blessings God has bestowed upon the nation.

Retired Bishop George Katwesigye, in his sermon, thanked Reverand Ruhindi for his commitment to serving the church and loving his family and wife in particular.

He said Canon Ruhindi, who started serving the church in the 1960’s is a very disciplined and principled man whom God has loved as a result of his obedience.

The service was attended by, among others, Bishops and other religioius leaders, district officials and family friends.
