The Church of Uganda founded nursing school affiliated to Uganda Christian University was opened by the Vice- President, Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi who represented President Yoweri Museveni.

The President hailed religious institutions for supporting Government in the provision of social services such as education and health.

He directed the Ministry of health to work closely with Bwindi community hospital to ensure that health service provision to the community is not compromised.

Premier Mbabazi said arrangements have been finalised and Government is now in the process of sourcing for a competent contractor to start works on Kanungu road.


“Kanungu has been considering unilateral declaration of independence because there is no place that can be cut off from its country for two years,” Mbabazi joked applauding the recently commenced works on the Mitano bridge which collapsed two years ago due to heavy rains cutting off movement between Rukungiri and Kanungu.

He said other roads in the District are also being considered for up-grade, adding that the rampant power cuts are as a result of the upgrading of the power transmission line to south-western Uganda.

Regarding the newly opened Nursing school, Mbabazi said Government and the people of Kanungu are grateful to the founders of the school especially James Jameson and Steven Wolf who contributed about Shs 1.2bn towards the construction of the nursing school.

He said nurses and midwives who constitute about 75% of the health care staff are a critical cadre in any health care system.

The opening of the Nursing school coincided with the celebration of a decade for Bwindi community hospital which has been ranked as the best hospital in Uganda over the last five years in terms of quality service by Uganda Medical Protestant Bureau.

Also present were the area woman member of Parliament, Elizabeth Karungi, Kanungu LCV Chairperson, Josephine Kasya and her district leadership among others.
