Kampala, 11 December, 2020 / 5:10 pm (ACI Africa).
Young people in the East African nation of Uganda have been cautioned against the tendency to stay idle or to be disorganized.
Addressing young people in his opening speech at the National Youth Conference Tuesday, December 8, Bishop Paul Ssemwogerere of Uganda’s Kasana-Luwero Diocese urged the youth “to arise and work.”
“We shouldn’t be idle and disorderly. You need to wake up your fellow youth to arise and work,” Bishop Ssemwogerere said at the event that was live streamed on social media.
The Ugandan-born Bishop added, “The youth can do things on their own because Jesus has allowed them an opportunity.”
He bemoaned the fact that many young people in Uganda are idle and disorderly but “when the Bishop comes around in his cassock and mitre they stop him, ‘we need food, we need your contribution’.”
