The archbishop of the church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali, has called on Ugandans to use this Easter season to tell the story of Jesus’ resurrection.


In his Easter summon at All Saints Cathedral Nakasero, Ntagali said rather than spreading the good news of Jesus’ resurrection, many Ugandans are telling political stories.

“There are many stories to tell but as Christians, there is one major story that we need to tell the world; that is the story of Jesus’ resurrection and the power of his love,” he said.

He asked Ugandans to embrace the Lord who will roll away the “stones” in their lives such as corruption, land grabbing, child trafficking that Christians.

“What type of ‘stones’ do we have in our lives today that stop us from enjoying the good life that God created us to enjoy?  This is the time we should embrace the Lord so that those stones are rolled away,” he said.

The Archbishop said Ugandans should use this time to renew their relationship with Jesus and overcome “the emptiness in our lives."

Quoting several scriptures from the Bible especially the New Testament, Ntagali applauded Women for their devotion and being the first to witness the resurrection of Jesus.

He appealed to all Ugandans to register and acquire National Identity Cards
