The Catholic Bishops of Uganda have warned of increasing injustice which is breeding xenophobic tendencies that is most likely to degenerate into revenge by those deprived of their benefits.

The Bishops contend that this stems from corruption, discrimination, suppression of freedoms and violation of human rights caused by a segment of those mostly in power.

Rt. Rev. Bishop Joseph Antony Zziwa the Chairman Uganda Episcopal Conference in the Easter Message at the Uganda Catholic Secretariat Nsambya today on behalf of the Bishops said the wide gap between the rich and the poor perpetuated by the pervasive culture of cheating and dishonesty by those in authority should addressed.

The Bishops say both injustice and revenge are contrary to the spirit of the resurrection for in the Risen Christ there is neither a Gentile nor a Jew. Let there be equity and fairness for all Ugandans.

They prayed that this year’s Easter Season should help Christians and all Ugandans reflect more on individual life and repent of the wrong doings, embrace peace, reconciliation, honesty and respect of human rights and dignity of all people.

The Catholic Bishops of Uganda have asked Ugandans to always question themselves whether they indeed love God and neighbour.

They further contend that violation of human rights, children and women and men, infidelity, separation among married couples and sexual indiscipline among believers worries the Catholic Church.

They have prayed that let the risen lord speak to their hearts if they want to inherit the Kingdom of God.
