The Ntungamo District Woman MP Beatrice Rwakimaari has warned Christian women in the district against excessive alcohol consumption if they are to keep their dignity and discipline in families.
Rwakimaari was addressing hundreds of Christians who turned up for the Mary’s day Sunday service at St Paul’s Kabira COU parish in Ntungamo sub county.
She expressed concern over the excessive drinking of alcohol among the married women noting that it has accelerated domestic violence and family breakdown before its first anniversary.
The legislator appealed to women to be humble, cooperative and preserve their dignity if they are to be loved by their husbands.
“In our early years we women were known for not taking alcohol, dressing decently before public and children but these days its worse you meet women stagnating in the middle of the road because of alcohol, lets us fight it please,” She noted.
However, Rwakimaari commended the women for engaging in developmental programs like Mothers Union and business which have enabled them develop themselves without depending on their husbands.
She lauded the Mothers Union at parish level led by Jadress Nuwagaba and ray leader Mercy Atwebembeire for the good leadership which enabled them to develop.
While preaching Enid Tabaruka from Kigezi diocese attributed marriage breakdown before its first anniversary to women who smile and care for their bosses, visitors and people they met outside family but failed to do the same to their husbands.
Nuwagaba who is also the Ntungamo sub county speaker hailed the Rwakimaari for extending electricity services in the area and for supporting women groups.
