The Archbishop of Church of Uganda, Stanley Ntagali has warned members of the Church and the public to desist from forcefully encroaching and grabbing Church land.
Ntagali while speaking at a thanksgiving event by the Diocese of Northern Uganda, said he had learnt that some members of the church are forcefully grabbing the Church land.
His comments were in response to an earlier speech by Bishop of Northern Uganda Diocese, Johnson Gakumba who said some people had started to illegally enter the Church’s Land and claim ownership.
Bishop Ntagali had earlier broken a ground for the Construction of St. Janani Luwum Technical institute which is a multi-billion project that will be set up to help in teaching various Vocational skills to people of Northern Uganda and beyond.
At the same function, the Diocese of Northern Uganda collected about 20 million shillings to give Bishop Ntagali as he prepares to retire in March 2020, when he clocks 65 years.
Ntagali was consecrated as the Arch Bishop of Church of Uganda in December 2012 and is credited for among other things establishing Kingdom Development Bank, finishing the Church House on Kampala Road among others.
