The death of this old mukade led to many suspensions and expulsions of many seminarians from katigondo seminary in the year 2009.
After her death, the following morning, seminarians were not informed properly of their time for prayer and so some had to miss morning prayers of the monday morning. a role call was carried out by Rev.Fr. Pastor Mpora, those who were found missing were given a suspension from which some had to find another vocation.
MAY THE ALMIGHTY GOD REST HER IN PEACE.

WHENEVER WE CONTINUE TO SIN WE DESTROY GOD'S CREATION
This reminds me of the great masses we used to have in Katigondo which were in promotion of incultulation. different cultures used to conduct different parts of mass so as to make mass more sweet.
I cannot forget the Kinyankole dancing style of cow horn, and the baganda dance, also the guru dancing styles by use of spears and other instruments. It was indeed very nice to be in such masses.
A photo with my seminarians from Mbarara Diocese of the same year. six among the eight seminarians that were in Katigondo in the year 2007-2010. I really recognise that priesthood is a slippy vocation. It has been a great challange to me, when I remember that while in St. Mukasa seminary we were 109 seminarians in P6, then entered Kitabi seminary when we were 44, but others joined from other places and we became again 105. However, only 6 of those who went to Kitabi and others from outside managed to make it to Alokuluumu and Katigondo seminaries. of the 109 seminarians who entered Mushanga, we are now only three serviving. it is not that others were dismissed, but the majority made another choice.
I find that this vocation, needs a self sacrifice spirit. A seminarian is indeed a capable person who can make it in another life, but one decides to offer himself for the good of the kingdom of God. The only serviving persons after Kitabi seminary are three.
I greet, my friends "Mukasa Balikudembe, Ahimbisibwe Deus, and myself". Mukasa Balikudembe is my great friend with whom we came from Mushanga preparatory seminary and are still on the move, however, they have often separated us. he went to Alokulumu and I went to Katigondo, he has now been sent to Kinyamatsika, and am in Ggaba seminary. However, soon, we shall be together to accompany one another in this life strugle.
God bless our vocation.
I remember the day I was told that we had finished our course in Katigondo, it was all joy. My first time to put on a gown as a graduate in philosophical studies was indeed one of my greatest archeivements as a seminarian and student. Philosophy seemed not to be done at first instance while in the first lectures, but most of all I was put to the line by the first lectures of Fr. Joseph Busuulwa which was talking about the Allegory of the cave and the simily of the line.
