But recently, rumours continue circulating insinuating that the pope had cancelled the visit, an issue that the Cardinal says is not correct.

While charting with some members of the press at Nsambya Catholic Parish, the retired bishop said: “this could be some section of the public who don’t wish the nation well and who have intentions of tarnishing the image of the Catholic Church”.

“The catholic fraternity should be strong and wait for a formal communication from the Vatican and not rely on public rumours.

While giving his last remarks, the Cardinal prayed and advised the ruling party and the opposition parties to unite for a noble democratic cause if the country is to achieve fruitful and fair elections in 2016.

He further blessed the media for the noble work of serving the country and advised them to always stick to the truth, especially now as the country heads to towards the critical time of the elections.

He also concluded by wishing all believers worldwide a happy East and asked for everyone’s prayers.
