Central Busoga Diocese Bishop Rt. Rev. Patrick Wakula speaking to the press after prayers at Christ the King Church on Christmas day

Iganga, (UG): The Bishop of Central Busoga Diocese Rt. Rev. Patrick Wakula has urged people to get rid of corruption tendencies in accumulating wealth which he says has resulted from moral decay among the people.

The Bishop was on Monday, December 25, leading Christmas prayers at the Anglican diocese at Christ the King Church CMS, Bulamagi sub-county in Iganga District where he said that many people have accumulated property and wealth out of corruption activities and embezzlement of money meant for the disadvantaged Ugandans.

“The morals have decayed, there is a lot of corruption because you can’t imagine someone sleeping in a very big house when everything in it is so magnificent but actually when it’s money corrupted from what was meant to be supplied to the poor community,” Bishop Wakula said.

He also urged the believers to use the celebrations of the birth of Jesus Christ (Christmas) to renew their commitment to their Lord and in their Christian life saying they should be transparent in whatever they do being the fact that it’s one of the principles of any born-again Christian.

“Someone may be sitting on a big screen TV or any other asset but of course when it’s the money which was meant to help the people in the health centres in our villages. That one is also a sin and I want to encourage all of us to renew our commitment to our saviour and in our Christian life because we’re supposed to be open and born again,” Rt Rev Wakula said.

During this festive season, a number of children tend to decay in morals as a result of peer groups, however, the Bishop urged parents to take responsibility and watch over their children and nurture them in a Godly way as they usher in 2024, considering it a year of development and commitment.
