A few days after President Yoweri Kagutta Museveni declared war against corruption in the country where he appointed Edith Nakalema as an officer based in his office to fight corruption, Bishop David Kiganda alongside other Pastors from various Born Again churches have organized an overnight prayer from which they are going to pray for peace and other challenges affecting the country like corruption.
While addressing the press at Old Kampala Senior Secondary School, Kiganda pointed out that “This is the right time to hand over our country before the Lord.”
He revealed that corrupt people can not only be left to Police because in many occasions people have been jailed for stealing small things but upon completing their sentences they come out as hard core criminals.
“The year 2018 has not been easy, it has claimed a lot of lives in a very wicked manner which involved women murder, various kidnaps and brutal shootings of high political figures,” he said.
The above, plus the capsizing of MV Templar where over 30 people perished and the St Bernard Fire in Rakai district where many students perished are some of the disasters which will never be forgotten in the year 2018.
Kiganda also called upon Ugandans to ensure that they enter the new year in prayers by thanking the Lord for all the good things he has done for them.
Various churches have organized overnight prayers on the 31st of December, but Kiganda with his group will hold their 13th Annual prayer day at Old Kampala Secondary school where Police led by Old Kampala DPC Charles Nsaba inspected the venue and assured security to all those who will attend.
