An archdiocese in southeastern Uganda aims to eliminate domestic violence.
“It’s a concern for the family, it’s a concern for the society, above all, it’s a concern for the Church, and we cannot keep quiet,” Archbishop Emmanuel Obbo of Tororo told the Catholic News Agency of Africa Aug. 17.
He said domestic violence is a major challenge present “in almost every family” in his diocese.
The archbishop lamented violence between spouses as well as child beating and the defilement of children.
