Ntagali, in his Christmas message emphasized that Uganda will not be a corruption free country if voters continue being bought by politicians during elections a scenario he said culminates into poor service delivery.
The Arch Bishop stressed that in the forth- coming elections, voters must observe and weave out poor leaders irrespective of how much money they can dish out in order to be put into elective positions.
Ntagali advised Members of Parliament and other leaders in big political positions to be mindful of people they represent other than simply passing out laws that only benefit people in leadership. The outgoing Man Of God further advised both the incumbent and in coming political aspirants to be economic mindful so that they don’t spend all family property in order to be elected
Don’t sell off family property like land in order to buy voters. Take into account that when you lose having sold off all the family land, you will make the family suffer. Lastly, I should advise political leaders not to cling on power because there is time for everything. Time to enter and time for Exit> Ntagali noted.
