Easter Pastoral Letter of the Catholic Bishops of Uganda
"I, then, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live a manner worthy of the call you have received with all the human love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit as you were also called to the hope of your call, one Lord, one faith, one baptism,, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all" (Ephesians 4:1-6)
"What you are doing is not good. You and the people with you will wear yourselves out, for the thing is too heavy for you; you are not able to perform it alone. Listen now to my voice; and will give you counsel, and God be with you" (cf. Exodus 18.13-23).
"The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of the government; this shall be expressed in periodic and genuine elections which shall be by universal and equal suffrage and shall be held by secret vote or by equivalent free voting procedures" (ART. 21).
"Ugandans are beginning to become impatient with the Government's apparent incapacity to deal with, fight and eventually eliminate corruption. It is believed that millions of shillings of public funds end up in the pockets of individuals, and this creates frustration and erosion of confidence in public authorities. Legislation which exists to ensure proper accountability and transparency in the use and administration of public funds, must be enforced; where it is lacking, new laws should be enacted to stamp out the evil practice of corruption".
