Uganda: Let Us All Value Other People's Lives - Ntagali

The Archbishop of Uganda, The most reverend Stanley Ntagali has called upon all Ugandans to value other people's lives and called for an explanation into the various mysterious deaths that have rocked the country.

While answering questions after his first Christmas Message ever since he was installed, Ntagali called for all Ugandans and the world at large to respect people's lives.

"God gives us a gift of life and it should not be lost carelessly. We need all the unexplained deaths to be explained. We do not need to see more of these deaths," said the Bishop.

Ntagali was answering questions about the many deaths, including MP Cerinah Nebanda's death, a saga which has gripped the nation.

"We need Police to investigate this and come to a conclusion and for those involved, we need to repent and come closer to God."

Flanked by his chaplain Rev. Onesimus Asiimwe, Ntagali promised that the church will continue to be the voice of the voiceless.

"We are part of the leadership of this country and as the church, we will continue to work together with the government for the betterment of the church community who we represent."

The Bishop wished all Ugandans a better festive season, and called upon them to love each other.
