Church of Uganda archbishop, Rt. Rev. Stanley Ntagali, has challeged government to get tough in the fight against corruption, human sacrifices and human trafficking among other vices.


Ntagali said the moral decay in the society  impacts on communities calling upon leaders of the church to be on the forefront to stem evils.


“East African Revival has been the backbone of our faith in the Church of Uganda, unfortunately the light of revival is getting dim and the church is increasingly becoming overtaken by the contemporary waves of evil,” Ntagali said.
