Fellow Countrymen and Countrywomen,
As we celebrate this year’s Easter, our hearts and prayers go to all those people who have lost their loved ones, those who languish in jails and safe houses of the dictator, and all the suffering masses in our country.
Our gratitude and admiration go out for all those who have paid the ultimate price for freedom. These religious festivities, for whatever religious belief they may belong, always bring into focus the family values and need for protection of family and family life.
It is during these seasons that families who have lost dear ones come face to face, over and over again with such gripping losses of their dear ones – when they stare at empty spaces in their family living rooms, bedrooms and eating rooms, etc.
Our hearts go out to them. And just like happened with Christ, whose death and resurrection the Christians the world over celebrate, there is hope and promise for those who struggle.
Happy Easter and a blessed festive season
General David Sejusa
