In addition, he promised the church that those who were involved in this will all be punished. The president also said that even if the church was in the wrong, ordering its demolition was an extreme act.
Therefore he said that dialogue would have solved the matter and he also revealed that demolishing a church is a curse. Through his official social media walls, the president posted the following message about his visit to the demolished church St Peter’s Church in Ndeeba
“On my way to work this morning, I passed by the site of St Peter’s Church in Ndeeba that was recently demolished by unscrupulous people.
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.
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. I am going 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.
The bottom line is that the Church will retain this land and we shall build a new church. I have now joined this war. I also noticed large groups of people gathering in Ndeeba as I inspected the site. This is wrong. Avoid crowding in light of the Covid-19 pandemic that we are grappling with,” President Museveni posted.
