Lwanga has called for an immediate handling of the anti-gay bill which was passed by parliament, last week.


“The bill (anti-gay bill) needs to be handled carefully to save the young generation which has been coerced into the act,” Lwanga said.


“The council further suggests that providing an avenue to the gay people to publicise their morals will portray a bad image of the country therefore, it should be strongly condemned.”


“The council further insists that there is no Christian belief which supports such acts thus the bill should be supported since even our traditional beliefs do not support such acts.”

On the other hand, Lwanga also revealed that national religious leaders are considering sending a team to visit Sudan capital Juba and engage conflicting parties in a dialogue to restore peace in the region which has been ravaged by this 20 year-old insurgence.


“We are mobilising for resources next year to see the team conveying a peaceful message where both conflicting parties will have a dialogue instead of fighting which has seen over 50,000 people dead and leaving millions refugees.”


The council further noted that with the current situation, more people will continue to lose lives since the region is endowed with the oil resource, therefore, the Juba question requires an immediate address as it has both internal and external parties which are expressing interest in the wealth.


The council further calls for more consideration of human lives instead of the oil resources.


Flanked by Sheikh Shaban Mubajje, the supreme Mufti of Uganda Muslim council, Lwanga is optimistic that if this move is put under consideration, more lives will be saved.


He cited the areas where the strategy has raised fruits which include northern Uganda, Somalia, Libya and Congo where talks have been able to bring relative peace.
