National Unity Platform (NUP) party President Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, together with a section of other leaders, have condemned the demolition of St Peter’s Church Ndeeba in Rubaga Division.
Quoting the Holy Bible in the book of proverbs 29:2 which reads, “when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked rule, the people mourn”, Kyagulanyi wondered how a holy place could be desecrated in such a ruthless manner.
“Sadly, our country is being ruled by insensitive people, they have allowed mafia gangs to wreak havoc everywhere and now they have reached the house of God,” he said adding, “we have consistently told the nation that as long as there is this breakdown of the rule of law, everyone will suffer.”
Kyagulanyi called upon Ugandans to unite and embark on the major objective of rebuilding the country which he said has been eaten up by an incurable disease.
“On behalf of NUP, I stand in solidarity with the body of Christ in Uganda, following the desecration of unimaginable proportions,” he noted.
Meanwhile, Betty Nambooze, the Mukono Municipality member of parliament also joined the other politicians to condemn this act.
“What a big attack! Some people are so callous. Demolishing a Church to evict God the almighty and you take that money to feed your family?” Nambooze wondered.
She added, “for starters, Church of Uganda Christians in Ndeeba woke up this morning to find the St Peters Church demolished! I understand that a Ugandan called Ddodo is under the protection of the government.”
