Uganda, like elsewhere in the world, is experiencing a moral decline. This
necessitates acquainting the nation’s young people with appropriate role
models beginning with God, then Jesus Christ and the saints, particularly
the Uganda martyrs. Besides, the author envisages no substantial moral
renewal, if Ugandan parents and adults themselves do not give a good
moral example and create a favourable moral environment. Otherwise Ugandan
young people will be building „a personal identity through trial and
error, without any goalpost in sight“ and thus perpetuating a state of
moral decline.
