Government has been urged to start thinking of re-opening of places of worship that were closed three months ago due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Bishop David Kiganda of Christianity Focus Center in Ndeeba, noted that he has since embarked on a protest by putting on a sackcloth with the words, “I can’t breath when Churches still closed.”
Kiganda recently expressed fear that Scientists in the country and around the world would use this Covid19 situation to keep Churches closed because they don’t like them.
“Science detests God and spirituality. They now have motivation to silence us because we have answers to questions that they couldn’t explain. And now they are in charge of the world. They make dictates and global political leaders follow,” Kiganda said
Meanwhile, The Born Again Pentacostal Faith leader, PastorJoseph Serwadda has said President Museveni could lose crutial support from Christians in the coming elections if Churches remain closed.
Other religious leaders who have been seen raising an alarm to government to open places of worship include, Mufti Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubajje, while celebrating Idd-ul-Fitr on May 24, when he called for opening of places of worship, saying the world needed prayers to heal during this difficult time of the Coronavirus pandemic.
