Orthodox in Uganda condemn corruption

The leader of the Orthodox Church in Uganda, Jonah Lwanga, has decried the increasing cases of corruption and prostitution in society. Lwanga also said it was unfortunate that greed had forced people to resort to evil practices such as sacrificing human beings to acquire wealth. Other evils he condemned were murder and sodomy. "Many people in Uganda, including Christians, do not profess in the principle of working for God's kingdom, but believe in earthly treasures," he noted.

Lwanga was addressing the congregation at the Orthodox Church in Namungoona, Kampala during Easter prayers on Sunday. Lwanga also said there were many problems that were suppressing the development of the people and Uganda as a nation. He urged people to give their lives to God and avoid sin. Lwanga also reminded the Christians that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save them from their sins and bring them closer to God.
