Catholic Church Linked to Uganda Child Labour
As if there weren’t enough scandals involving the Catholic Church. Vinnie O’Dowd and Danny Vincent have written a report for the BBC on this rather shocking story.
During his November visit to Africa, the continent which now counts nearly 200m Roman Catholics, Pope Francis said that children were some of the greatest victims of Africa’s historical exploitation by other powers. He also urged young Africans to resist corruption. But should the Vatican be doing more to put its own house in order? A BBC investigation has uncovered evidence that church land in Uganda is being used for child labour.
