Kampala, 26 August, 2022 / 9:30 pm (ACI Africa).
There is need for the government of Uganda to emulate the Catholic Church in management of public affairs for the success of the East African country, the leader of opposition in the country’s parliament has said.
Hon. Mathias Mpuuga who was speaking at the 125th anniversary of Our Lady Queen of Virgins Parish of Kampala Archdiocese reflected on the achievements of the Ugandan Parish and said that there are many lessons the government can learn from the Catholic Church.
“The Church offers a virtual blackboard for those who want to learn,” Hon. Mpuuga was quoted as saying in a Tuesday, August 23 report.
He explained, “When you look at what Kisubi parish has achieved over the 125 years and compare it with the journey Uganda has walked in its 60 years of independence, you will agree with me that there is a lot for Uganda to learn from the Catholic Church.”
The member of the party of the National Unity Platform (NUP) added, “I have been reflecting on the story of Uganda at 60; it is one tainted with acts of gross human rights violations; torture, killings and forcing political opponents into exile.”
