“Many parents and several adult relatives are so greedy that they go to the shrine and engage in witchcraft that puts children at risk and even worse, causes children to be sacrificed,” outgoing Archbishop Ntagali told the media at the Provincial Secretariat, Namirembe.
Archbishop Ntagali, who retires in March 2020, also castigated greed, injustice, youth unemployment and land grabbing.
“We have serious issues from UN’s pro-promiscuity, pro-gay and pro-abortion sexual agenda that are trying to infiltrate Uganda. Such are sneaking into Uganda through re-writing government policies as well as through UN-funded NGOs. We continue to say no to comprehensive sexuality education and fully support efforts to intervene on this matter,” he said.
