Police is yet to make a statement about the incident. The Church demolition follows a long standing land wrangle between the church leaders and a business man. It is alleged that St. Peter’s Church of Uganda, Ndeeba has been facing a threat of demolition from agents of the businessman.
Earlier in March, the church was attacked by armed policemen and court bailiffs but these were stopped by angry Christians who defended the church with stones and sticks, a standoff which ended on firing of teargas by Police.
According to Samuel Kalanzi, the headmaster of St. Peters Primary, the school has been in existence for over 4 years and had been sitting on the disputed land.
“All along we knew that the land belonged to the church but were shocked when we were thrown out by bailiffs who claimed that the land belonged to someone else, now it is demolished,” Kalanzi recently told local press.
