ICC Note: Ugandan Catholic priests are being admired for the recent changes they have implemented for the country. Their religious services have trespassed their influence on the public and intensified positive change.  

06/28/2018 Uganda (La Croix International) – Catholic priests in Uganda have been praised by a local politician for their transformative efforts in fostering education, development and social justice in the country.

“On top of their evangelistic work, [the priests] also champion sustainable projects in the arenas of education, development and relief, which have transformed the lives of many Ugandans,” said Betty Muzamira, the MP for Rukungiri district in Kigezi, a subregion of southwest Uganda.

They “have always been reputable for their holistic development programs,” she was quoted as saying by at an event held in the nation’s capital on June 24.

She also thanked the Kigezi-Kampala Residents Association (KKRA) for supporting the development of churches in rural areas and promoting unity in Kigezi.

One senior parish priest who attended the annual reunion urged members not to conflate religion and politics or persecute religious leaders for their views.
