The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda Stanley Ntagali appeals to Ugandans to be more accountable and transparent in the New Year 2014.

Ntagali this morning told a congregation at Namirembe Cathedral that in the past year, accountability and sincerity were missing virtues among Ugandans a result of which the country was engulfed in corruption scandals.  

He says Ugandans must work towards changing the trend in the New Year.

Ntagali further appeals to Ugandans to accept God’s love in order to change their attitude, behavior and mindset so that they do not behave like the world dictates as witnessed in the past year.

Meanwhile in the same service, the Bishop of Namirembe Diocese Wilberforce kityo Luwalira told Ugandans that this year should be a year of hard work and doing God’s will.

He told Christians to always reflect on the Church of Uganda 2014 theme; “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise. The theme was lifted from Ephesians 5:15

He advised Ugandans to look at the past year and identify their weaknesses and strength and thereafter regain hope and courage to move on in 2014.

He added that appreciating God, preaching the Gospel and building the Church should be paramount in the New Year.
