The Bishop of Mukono Diocese, James William Ssebaggala has beseeched government officials involved in corruption to accept Jesus in their lives to redeem them from their conduct, which undermines development in the country.     

Delivering his Christmas sermon at St Phillips and Andrews Cathedral Mukono, Bishop Ssebagala noted that as the world celebrates the birth of Jesus, government officials need to embrace him as the only way to the develop the country and free it from its current challenges. 

He noted that the country is struggling to improve its education and health systems, infrastructure and key projects because the responsible parties are busy enriching themselves. Referring to the recent anti-corruption walk by president, Yoweri Museveni, Bishop Ssebagala said it can’t end the vice. 

He said government officials need God to end corruption as opposed to leading processions.

Pastor Samuel Lwandasa of Mountain Lebanon Church Mukono also reminded Christians that their deeds will determine their fate on judgment day. He asked Christians to be sincere in their conduct if the country is to move forward.    

“Once we are deep in Christ our country will move in straight line. Discover our weaknesses as Christians and accept to repent and then turn back to God,” he said.
