Ankole diocese Bishop Rt Rev Sheldon Mwesigwa has warned people to take charge of their own lives amidst upsurge of COVID-19 cases hinting at politicians being selfish in exposing the public to the pandemic.
In a Christmas message he delivered at his office at Ankole diocese headquarters Ruharo hill in Kamukuzi, Mbarara city yesterday Bishop Mwesigwa said it hurts and shows a level of selfishness when you find politicians putting the lives of the locals at stake in guise of hunting for votes.
The man of God said that he has seen politicians putting on masks, their microphones getting sanitized every time and again but they are mixing freely with citizens who are very exposed to coronavirus with no masks, no social distance, dancing.
The Bishop appealed to Ugandans that it’s high time they think of taking charge of their own lives by observing the Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs), care about their bodies and Christian values of living responsible lives.
However, the Bishop also warned clergy in the diocese not to tempt Christians during the Christmas festive season to flout the SOPs.
