ARCHBISHOP LWANGA DECRIES CHILD ABUSE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Archbishop Lwanga singles out the numerous murders, defilement and child sacrifices as the most worrying crimes presently.

KAMPALA - The Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese has decried child abuse, domestic violence and sex abuse, saying it impedes a child's mental development. 

Dr.  Cyprian Kizito Lwanga also tipped government on the newly introduced programme on sex education.

For the National Sexuality Education Framework to be successful, government has to thoroughly prepare teachers so as to deliver the message well, Lwanga added.


He made the remarks at Uganda Namugongo Martyrs Shrine during the 11th anniversary celebrations of the Bannakizito Association - a celebratory tribute to children on Sunday.


Lwanga said sex education upholds moral and Christian values and is the task and shared responsibility of families, the Church and State through the schools.


He singled out the numerous murders, defilement and child sacrifices as the most worrying crimes presently, which have not only lowered human dignity, but have also put parents and their children alike in terrible fear.
The Archbishop urged people killing others to stop.

 

 

Child abuse or maltreatment constitutes all forms of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment, sexual abuse, negligent treatment, commercial or other exploitation, resulting in actual or potential harm to the child's health, survival, development or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility, trust or power.

 

The Archbishop, the founder of the Bannakizito Association, said he named it so because he wanted children, irrespective of their gender, to emulate St Kizito, the youngest of the 22 Uganda Martyrs.

Lwanga tasked children with sticking to the three pillars of the Bannakizito Movement - to promote peace, to share and to have love for one another.

Thousands of pupils from over 100 schools attended the function.

The children's head of laity, Arnold Amanya of Mugwanya Preparatory School Kabojja, thanked the Archbishop Lwanga for founding a movement that has brought them together.

Fr. Joseph Luzindana, the director of the association, commended Lwanga for the wisdom he had to start  a movement that children pride in.
