RUKUNGIRI-Christians have been reminded to always know that they have numbered days of life and utilize the time profitably for them to be successful and learn to appreciate and guide other people in this world.
The words of encouragement were said by Rev. Joseph Muhwezi the parish priest Rwakirungura C.OU during sendoff ceremony of late Jovans Kakihumuro of Rwentuha cell, in Rwakirungura parish, Buyanja Sub County in Rukungiri district who died at the age of 110 years.
While preaching to the mourners, Rev. Joseph narrated that most of people have forgotten that the days of life are countable adding that it’s high time for people to ask forgiveness and do right things when still alive.
Rev. Joseph also thanked the entire family of late Ezekiel Rujumure for the effort rendered in supporting the church calling for the same spirit like from the surviving family members as it has been done by the elders.
While giving out his speech during the sendoff ceremony, Ayambirwe William the deceased’s son described his mother as the person who was so hospitable and a God fearing woman hence creating harmony and friendship amongst family members.
Naboth Katongole the grandson of Late Jovans Kakihumuro called on family members not to take the age of their grandmother that died at for granted but rather use it as an opportunity reflect on themselves and work towards maintaining the legacy of the late grandmother.
On behalf of the government, Sabiti Mackline district Woman councilor representing Buyanja Sub County and town council encouraged children to always care and look after their parents and guardians in old age like how the family of late Jovans Kakihumuro did.
Sabiti continued by requesting parents to also be disciplined and love their families if they are to be respected after their lives.
Late Jovans Kakihumuro born in 1912 and has died at the age of 110 years but according to the residents and family members, most of them have been dying at the age of above 90 years.
