KAMPALA – I’m concerned about the kind and level of carelessness and indifference some Ugandans are exhibiting during this time of crisis. Such a behaviour is dangerous! It can plunge us into a deeper danger!
I have watched some people’s responses to the President’s directives, and I’m thinking: this must stop or be stopped.
Imagine someone complaining that bars are temporarily closed, that crowds at burials are trimmed, that church services and masses are not permitted, that people should avoid crowding, etc.
What is this?!!
Worse still that someone can leave the country, amidst this crisis, for no other reason but to purchase phone screens, only to return infected with coronavirus! Doing business is fine, but can’t we read the times?!
This level of laxity and recklessness is uncalled for, really. Let us learn to arrange our priorities correctly, and put safety above liberty.
I heard that even some minister conducted a service in church today, against the suspension. The law is not that you conduct a small service in the church. It says that you pray from your home!
Let us get serious! First, let us turn to God in humility, and in repentance. Remember that He is omnipresent! Secondly, let us obey the rules spelt out by the President and the MOH. These are for our safety.
God will hear and see us through this time. He might spare our country from a total shutdown and eventual death.
More vigilance, please!
Rt. Rev. Johnson Twinomujuni, WAD.
