The rising cases of suicide in Greater Kabale have drawn the attention of Bishops. At least eight people have committed suicide by hanging in Kabale and Rubanda district in a space of one month and two weeks.

Two people with mental illness were also found dead in Kabale town about a fortnight ago.

Delivering his Easter Message at his office on Rugarama hill on Saturday, the Kigezi Diocesan Bishop George Bagamuhunda said that it was unfortunate that people "created in God's image" could choose to end their own lives.

He asked Christians to renew their faith in God and lay down all life’s burdens to Jesus Christ, as the only source of hope.  

//Cue In: “I want to….

 Cue Out:…faith in him,”//

Bishop Johnson Bakashaba, the overseer of Revival Terbanacle Ministries on the other hands said many people have come to him with broken hearts and frustration caused by the lockdown due to COVID 19.

He argued them to use the Easter period to cry to the risen Jesus Christ instead of ending their own lives. 

//Cue In: This pandemic….. 

Cue Out:…good loves us,”//

Bishop Aloysius Kiiza, the overseer of Lift up Jesus Global Ministries said he was deeply concerned not only about the suicide cases but also the increase in unexplained murders. 

He cited two incidents in which a man and an elderly woman both mentally ill were found murdered in a similar fashion in Kabale town about two weeks ago. 

Bishop Kiiza said Ugandans should use the Easter holidays to repent their sins, turn back to God and plead for salvation.

//Cue In: “Violence…

Cue Out:..all hearts”//
