Popular lawmaker Robert Kyagulanyi has used his Easter Message to hit out at the powers that be warning that good will defeat evil without making any references.
Bobi Wine posted the message on his Facebook page saying despite troubles, ‘joy comes in the morning.’
Below is the full message
Happy Good Friday! On this day, Christians remember the suffering and death of Jesus Christ on the cross. He was bruised for being righteous, and killed for speaking the truth to the Pharisees and the other leaders of the time. As we remember His agony, may we reflect on our own lives and commit to live in the service of others.
This year’s Good Friday comes at a time when persecution of political activists in Uganda is at its peak. Dr. Stella Nyanzi is still incarcerated atLuzira prison. Our brother Sam Mugumya is still detained in the DRC. Many People Power activists are still languishing in jail. Some of our supporters in Mbarara are still in hospital, having been brutalized a few days ago as they celebrated our victory in the guild elections at Mbarara University. Police continues to foil FDC activities across the country. Together with colleagues, we continue to face illegal treason charges. To top it up, yesterday the Supreme Court sought to permit the continuation of this state of affairs by sanctioning Museveni’s life presidency project.
What Good Friday teaches us is that suffering never has the last word. Today is Good Friday, but Sunday will be Easter- a day of resurrection. Evidence that sadness may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning. The forces of evil, however fearsome, cannot last much longer. Therefore we do not lose heart!
Good Friday teaches us to be courageous in the face of intimidation, steadfast in the face of betrayals, and firm in the face of persecution- well knowing that in the end, good will defeat evil.
From my family to yours, Happy Easter Holidays.
