Chapter five: Analysis of research findings; Chapter six, Recommendations, Conclusions. The researcher used the research questions so as to find out the role of UJCC in peace building in Uganda. The findings of the study revealed that; peace work is negatively affected by lack of a clearly articulated policy and resolve on peace and reconciliation. This study has investigated the role of the Christian Church in resolving conflicts in Uganda. It has clearly demonstrated that the major cause of the conflict is non other than greed that motivates the unfair power sharing between the ruling party and the opposition, various ethnicity and tribes generally in Uganda. The study has therefore, recommended that fair power sharing is the solution to divide in the sections in Uganda. It also suggests that, the Christian church that has failed to help prevent or stop the current conflicts particularly case in point is the Lord Resistance Army of Joseph Koney. It also needs to foster a spirit of confession and reconciliation within her congregations, so as, to have a community o repentance, forgiveness, prayer and reconciliation. The study suggested that further studies should be conducted on the following areas: The role of Islam in peace building in the Uganda.
