The Archbishop of Kampala Diocese Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has cautioned the government against the continued human rights abuses.
While leading the mass during the burial of the late Msgr. Charles Kato Katongole at Katende parish church in Mpigi district yesterday, Lwanga said that the NRM slogan of ‘securing your future’ which they used in the campaigns is a direct contradiction of what is happening in the country.
He said that innocent people are being arrested, abducted and tortured with impunity.
Lwanga demanded that those who are still missing be released with immediate effect or arraigned in courts of law since President Museveni has already declared openly that they are being held by security agencies in the country.
Lwanga also accepted the apology of Tourism State Minister Godfrey Kiwanda who last week apologized to the Catholic Church in Uganda for whatever might have taken place during and after campaigns when different statements were aired against each of the parties.
Archbishop Lwanga also lashed out at some government officials who say that the clergy should not meddle in politics but concentrate on preaching the word of God.
According to Lwanga, the bible guides the clergy to advise their followers on all matters regarding mankind among which politics is part.
