The rampant cases of divorce and domestic violence in most families have been largely attributed to pride and boastful women.
According to Annah Kankiriho, a senior woman and teacher at Bweranyangi Girls SS in Bushenyi District, women have failed to be obedient to God’s command that they should be submissive to their husbands and in turn husbands should love their wives.
Ms Kankiriho, an advocate of better families noted that women have resorted to perishable world treasures instead of being role models to their daughters.
“As an advocate, women of these days have neglected their obligations of cooking, cleaning and even laying the beds to house maids or even to their husbands. Can you imagine disguising that they have a tight schedule at their workplace and in long run they start quarreling now and then?” Kankiriho asked.
She made remarks on Sunday while preaching at St Mary’s Day held at All Saints Church, Ntungamo Municipality where 15 women were confirmed in Mothers’ Union. These included Sisterus Kyomugisha, the wife to councilor Nicholas Twikiriize Mugyenyi and Joselyne Byamukama, a wife to Byamukama Wilson the head teacher Ntungamo High School.
Kankiriho advised women to be prayerful and humble in their families if they are to changed their husbands and see in them Christian valves.
The Mothers’ Union coordinator Phellethie Nuwamanya hailed their husbands for being supportive and highlighted what has been done, what will be done including mothers Union projects.
The service was led by Vicar Rev Kunywana Dennis, Rev Canon Kankiriho, Rev Aggrey Ainamaani and all lay readers in the parish.
Edward Beyendeza hailed the work being done by women in families.
The climax of the function was cutting of a cake and the newly confirmed women in Mothers’ Union gave gifts to their husbands as a sign of love.
Over Shs3.8m was raised.
