- ItemThe Church and Politics: an unhappy marriage!(2018-02-15) Ogoola, James M.The church in Politics is an unhappy marriage! A marriage of sorrows – unhappy because politicians across the planet hate the dictates of conscience and morality; unhappy because politics makes martyrs of the church. I am elated therefore, to have been asked by the organisers of Luwum public lecture to think about and to talk about the theme: “Should the Church Be Involved in Politics?” Within that theme, I have with poetic license carved out the particular topic of my discourse: “The Church in Politics; An Unhappy Marriage”.

- ItemRealizing Public Accountability In Uganda's Public Service Delivery System - A Myth or Reality?(Uganda Christian University, 2018-10) Kagaba, CissyCorruption can be defined as misuse of office for personal gain. It includes; Offering, giving, promising, solicitation or acceptance of any goods of monetary value or benefit or undue advantage in exchange for any act or omission in the performance of a person’s duties. It also takes the forms of; neglect of duty, corruptly procuring tenders, bribery, diversion of public resources. Accountability refers to the obligations of public enterprises and agencies (who are entrusted with public resources) to be answerable for fiscal and social responsibilities, to those who have assigned such responsibilities to them. Accountability can also involve citizens holding their leaders accountable for their actions, most especially if the actions are against the public good. It can as well be defined as being responsible to someone for actions taken. Transparency refers to openness and ease within which information can be accessed by the public. Transparency is needed for accountability and is an indicator of a government that is citizen focused and service oriented. It implies a proactive effort to make information accessible to the citizens.
- Item“Working against corruption tendencies; a personal responsibility for Christians or individual responsibility? (“Okulwanyisa obuli bwenguzi, buvunanyizibwa bwani ani?”)(Uganda Christian University, 2018-10) Kansiime, EllyBefore we talk of fighting corruption we must first know what it is and what it is capable of doing to us as individuals and our society, so that we can seek for ways of working together against it. First of all corruption is a silent and slow but sure mover. It begins with small words, small actions and sometimes with small people; in small places and utilizing small occasions with little pressure. As it gains ground on an individual, it begins to creep towards bigger people and places, this time using bigger words and actions until it infects others and their workplaces. The biblical ethical dilemma expressed in Pro.29:2 about corruption seems to be accusing leaders and exonerating the subjects, but corruption is inherent in all of us with the potential to destroy character, not only of the corrupt individual but also of the person it is aimed at, and will only surface when opportunities come. It is therefore a cross cutting vice. So what is corruption?
