Happy Easter Celebrations: Look! The lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, John 1:29. Jesus’ resurrection is the celebration of victory over pain, betrayal, sin and death but importantly triumph of good over evil.

Essentially, Easter is commemoration of fulfilled promise/prophesy, sacrifice, survival, redemption, faith, spirituality and eternal destiny.

Before resurrection on the third day of the Holiest week of the Christian calendar, we observe a period of Lent marked by prayer, fasting, repentance, kindness, alms-giving and self-denial is observed.

During lent, the most basic human values, virtues and social standards are put to test among Christians. This is why Jesus Christ was born; it’s what He lived for; and it’s what He died for.

Although Christians are commanded to love God, and to love one’s neighbour as you love yourself, in Uganda this remains totally elusive.

We’ve, instead, abused and violated each other; besieged the vulnerable; enslaved the poor; attacked and harmed the defenceless and deprived the needy.

I  recognise that we are celebrating Easter when many parents are worried their sons and daughters may  be dismissed from schools/universities for lack of school fees; some citizens may die for lack of proper medical care or get stuck in medical facilities for lack of money to pay for treatment; others will be victims of needless road accidents; some people will be evicted from their rented homes for lack of money to rent; and some others will lose their property to commercial banks or money lenders for failure to pay loans etc.

The challenge we have as a country is having few people that control the use of coercive instruments that marginalize and deprive others of a decent livelihood.

As the people of Uganda struggle for a just system, they should get inspiration from the life and Ministry of Jesus Christ.  Its sacrifice and endurance that will eventually bring triumph.

Now is the time for leaders to step up; to comfort and guide the people on how to appropriately respond to the Judas’ of our times; and to overcome the immense challenges before them.

That’s a large part of the role my colleagues and I, in the “People’s Government” are playing to empower our people to non-violently assert themselves and build a free, just and equitable society.

I wish all of you a Happy and Reassuring Easter Holiday.
