Bishop Wakula describes Archbishop Lwanga as a champion of peace and justice


The Bishop for central Busoga Diocese Bishop Patrick Wakula has joined the Catholic Church to mourn the death of Kampala Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga whom he described as a champion of peace and justice in Uganda.

“He would talk about peace and justice. He really wanted peace and justice to prevail in this country,” said Bishop Wakula.

Archbishop Lwanga was on Easter Vigil (Saturday morning) found dead in bed. He succumbed to heart attacks.

Bishop Wakula made the remarks while speaking to hundreds of Christians during the Easter message at All Saints Church located in CMS village Bulamagi Sub County on Easter Sunday.

He said the majority of youths are being used by opposition politicians to take part in violent riots and later left to rot in jails or lose their lives in the process.

He expressed concern over the increase in cases of corruption amongst government officials whose actions deny locals access to better services.

“We are moving on bad roads, visiting health facilities without drugs just because of these corrupt government officials,“ he said.

Wakula urged Christians to avoid harmful and sinful behaviour like fornication, adultery or drunkenness even with the end of the fasting period.

He further implored to stay away from envy and jealousy the acts he says have led to underdevelopment in the area.
