President Museveni, who was in company of his usual convoy, also urged judges to always have limits while carrying out their justice duties.
“Judges should have limits and understand public interest. Demolishing a church is a curse. Also, ignore reports of those claiming the government demolished the church.” The president said
“The bottom line is that the Church will retain this land and we shall build a new church. I have now joined this war.”
Museveni also pledged to invite the Namirembe Diocese Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira, and engage with all parties involved in this conflict to find a lasting solution.
“I am saddened by this incident and I give the church assurances that those complicit will be punished. Even if the church was in the wrong, ordering demolition was extreme. Dialogue would have resolved this matter,” Museveni added.
On Monday, Museveni ordered for action against all those involved in the demolition of the church.
According to the State House Anti-Corruption unit boss, Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema, the acting director in charge of Physical Planning in KCCA, Ivan Katongole has since been arrested for giving a green light to the demolition of the place of worship.
