In a nation where politics is seen as something that only causes divisions between people, the country need a uniting force to bring them all together as one. As such, Bishop David Livingstone Kiganda of Christianity Focus Centre Church, Kisenyi – Kampala has urged Church leaders to come together to unite Uganda.
The proprietor of Christian broadcaster, Kingdom TV made these remarks while addressing journalists about the upcoming National Annual Prayer Day and Night expected to take place 31st December at Old Kampala SSS play grounds.
He expressed that during this time when the country is divided over the recent constitutional amendment that lifted the presidential age limit and extended presidential and parliamentary terms of office, Ugandans should seek God’s guidance on how how to harmoniously settle these differences .
“We are aware that some people are unsatisfied, we need God’s guidance into everything,” he said.
The 12th National Annual Prayer Day and Night is expected to draw several preachers including Pr Cindy Kiganda, Pr Michael Kimuli, Pr Michael Kyazze among others.
The event will run under the theme; ‘You will cross your Jordan Today,’ inspired by Deuteronomy 9:1-2.
Uganda police officials who also addressed the same news conference assured the nation on security at the event, however urging attendants to stand vigilant.
This rhymes with guidelines issued earlier by Mr Emilian Kayima, the Police spokesperson who on Friday said over the years they have noticed citizens celebrate recklessly – putting the lives in danger.
Mr Kayima said that only 921 entertainment and prayer venues have been cleared to display fireworks to welcome the New Year.
“Please don’t be tempted to display fireworks when your place is not among those that have been cleared by police. Do it at your own risk. Those cleared to display fireworks have been sensitised and they know what to do,” Mr Kayima said.
