The church has denied claims that it has failed in its duty of guiding the nation.

This follows concerns raised by some stakeholders that many religious leaders have abandoned their duty of speaking out against social injustices and dictatorship.

They claim that the religious leaders have now been compromised by gifts from the president and remained silent about critical issues affecting Ugandans.

Now the provincial secretary of the church of Uganda Rev Canon Amos Magezi says the church is supposed to condemn all evil in society and is truly living to its expectations.

This comes as the country prepares for the 40th memorial celebration tomorrow of archbishop Janan Luwum who was murdered for speaking against the tyranny of President Idi Amin’s regime.
