Fr. Gaetano Condemns Clerics for Abandoning Besigye

Fr. Gaetano prays for Dr Besigye during the presidential election campaigns

Rev. Fr. Gaetano Batanyenda, adiposity http://cotro.com/wp-content/plugins/fusion-builder/inc/lib/inc/class-fusion-dynamic-js-file.php the Priest of Kitanga in Kabale district has condemned fellow clerics for abandoning Forum for Democratic Change’s former Presidential Candidate Col Dr Kizza Besigye in his time of need.

Fr. Gaetano, an outspoken NRM government critic recently paid a visit to Dr Besigye in Luzira Prison where he is remanded for Treason.

And while the former Presidential candidate seemed in good spirits, Gaetano says he was dismayed that no single church or Muslim leader has gone to visit him since he was remanded in May.

The man of God narrated, “As the time to departure was approaching, I asked (Besigye) whether there’s any Bishop, priest, reverend or sheikh who had come to visit him. His face changed and said, ‘None!’ You are the first one and hope not the last.”

“At this point, I remembered once again the words of Jesus, “I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me.”

Gaetano says although Besigye is locked up in Prison, his spirit is still lively. He says he left him with a bible and a crucifix.
