He thanked Christians for turning up in very big numbers during the last Musa Mukasa Celebrations at Munyonyo and the Uganda Martyrs' day at Namugongo. He said that on the issue of the land at Munyonyo where Musa Mukasa was martyred, he had gone with Bishop Luwalira to meet the Buganda Land Board team to see that they give Mengo Archdeaconry a lease to develop that place into a modern worship centre and were still waiting for communication from the Buganda Land Board Offices.
