Orthodox Church leads National prayers for peaceful elections

The orthodox church of Uganda at Namungona is leading payers for piece as the country nears the general elections next week.

Last week the Uganda Joint Christan council announce 3 days national prayers and fasting for the country to have piece throughout the general election.

The chairperson of council and also Arch Bishop of Kampala diocese Dr. Ciprian Kizito Lwanga said the prayers will be led by the Catholic, Orthodox Church, and church of Uganda.

This comes after Dr Ciprian Lwanga called upon people and the government during Christmas to embrace peace in the coming elections.

During the time of prayers Lwanga also told the congregation that he received a call from America accusing the man of God of having plot to assassinate NUP flag bearer Hon.Kyagulanyi Ssentamu. Dr.Kizito however while appearing on media refuted the claims and called upon the government to observe human rights.

During the service, Father Nicholas Bayego the parish priest of St. Nicolas Cathedral Namungoona has prayed for transparency to prevail throughout the electoral process by not intimidating anybody, bribe them or force them to what’s illegal.

He further added that there is life beyond the general election as the service is still on going.
