While commissioning the Shs 2.5 billion mansion, the Bishop of Kabale Diocese Rt. Rev. Callist Rubaramira lauded the catholic community for contributing the cash to set up the magnificent building.
revealed that the funding was from the Bishop’s Annual Appeal Fund-BAAF of 2019 that gathered close to Shs 2.5 billion.
The Centenary bank regional manager Edison Bwambale said Kabale deserved a better structure resembling Mapeera House because it was the first district in the country to house Centenary Bank.
The Minister for Trade, Industry and cooperatives David Bahati praised the Bishop of Kabale Diocese Rt. Rev. Rubaramira for this spirit of development, leadership and contribution to the economic empowerment of Kigezi Region and the business community.
In his message read for him by the Kabale District LC 5 Chairperson Nelson Nshangabasheija, Bahati who is also the Ndorwa West legislator commended the bishop of Kabale Diocese for his developmental ideas and coming up with the Bishop’s annual appeal fund idea in 2019 intending to construct a new building for Centenary Bank that is giving facelift to Kabale Municipality.

Meanwhile, Rt Rev Rubaramira said the building was named after the first catechist in Kabale Diocese Yohana Kitagana who died in 1911 in recognition of his contribution to the development of the diocese and the establishment of the first church in Kabale district.
