“This is a time we all need to recommit ourselves to God in gratitude for giving us his son, by lending a hand to other people in need,” he said.


The merrymaking, however, should not overshadow the realities of corruption, unconstitutionalism and impunity that continue to bedevil the country, warned the Bishop.


“As we enjoy the festivities, let’s also keep in mind that we still have in our government, individuals who have done nothing this year but steal from national coffers.”


Dr. Zac has been one of the people whose standoff with government this year hit major heights over the latter’s continued disregard of human rights, corruption and lack of transparency.


Earlier in February, he was roughly arrested and detained at the peak of his infamous Black Monday Campaign, highlighting government’s major corruption scandals to students at Makerere University.


The incident sparked of outrage from mainly senior clerics, who condemned government’s lack of respect for religious leaders.


Through the year, he has intensified his anti-government crusades, extending partnership with several civil society organisations and opposition leaders to call for regime change.


“So as we celebrate the birth of Christ and prepare to cross into 2014, let’s recommit ourselves and say ‘enough is enough, next year this can’t be allowed again’.”


This season should, therefore, not be a time for gratitude and mere celebration, but a time for commitment to the cause of our country,” he said.
