Give meaning to fight against corruption – Catholic Bishop

  • The Bishop of the Kumasi Archdiocese of the Catholic Church, Most Rev. Gabriel Justice Yaw Anokye, has urged the government to give meaning to its perceived fight against corruption by first prosecuting those found guilty within the administation.


    He said for now, the perceived fight against the canker appeared to be mere rhetoric since those found guilty of corrupt practices were still roaming about freely in the county.


    The bishop cautioned that if nothing was done about the situation, corruption would soon spread into every facet of life since people would not be afraid of prosecution any longer.


    Most Rev. Anokye was speaking at the opening of the 4th National Congress of the Catholic Men’s Society in Kumasi.


    The three-day congress, which was on the theme: “The Catholic Man, a witness to Jesus Christ in Ghana today,” brought together more than 600 members from Kumasi, Obuasi, Jasikan, Konongo-Mampong, Cape Coast, Goaso and Sefwi-Wiaso dioceses of the Catholic Church.


    Most Rev. Anokye lamented the issue of lesbianism and homosexuality which was gradually eating into the lives of people in the country and urged all Ghanaians to shun those practices since they were ungodly and also against the culture of Ghanaians.


    He explained that although individuals in the country had various human rights, such human rights should be backed by common sense and the cultural values of the people should also be taken into consideration before accepting any new culture or behaviour.


    Most Rev. Anokye urged members of the Catholic Men’s Society to lead the crusade for peace and development in society and live exemplary lives by letting their beliefs reflect in their lives wherever they may find themselves.
