The Archbishop of the church of Uganda his grace the most Rev. Stanley Ntagali has expressed concern over the escalated cases of insecurity in the country Uganda.
The man of God said this while giving his homily today 11th Aug.2019 at St. John’s cathedral Rwenzori diocese during his country tour aimed at biding farewell to Christians for his retirement as the Archbishop of the church of Uganda for seven years.
The Archbishop stated that there is a lot of insecurity in the country citing boda boda riders’ brutal murders, kidnaps and rape among other incidents thus calling up on people to get saved.
The man of God has therefore appealed to parents and Ugandans to advocate for the rights of children from some people who are ready to hurt them through rape, psychological torture and denial to education and protect them.
His grace explained that some parents have neglected their children to some relatives who have ended up hurting them like rape to girl children, mistreatment by some step parents thus urging government to use iron hand on such acts.
Meanwhile in his massage read by the deputy prime minister Tooro Kingdom Harriet Nyakake, his royal majesty King Oyo Nyimba Kabamba Iguru Rukidi IV commended the works of the Archbishop thus urging religious leaders to use their platform to educate people to stop degrading the environment.
Alex Ruhunda the Mp Fort portal has challenged fellow leaders to follow example of Archbishop Ntagali for the peaceful transition of power.
“The man of God has left his office willingly thus we should also follow his example”
However, his Rt. Rev. Bishop Reuben Kisembo Amooti the bishop for Rwenzori diocese has described his grace as a man who used to stand for his word, developmental, served God with whole heart thus praying his predecessor be like him.
The Archbishop will on 1st September 2019 retire as the Archbishop of the church of Uganda after serving for over 40 years in priesthood and seven years as the Archbishop.
