Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has laughed off the Constitutional Court injunction issued last Friday banning the party’s defiance campaign and all its programs which include the ‘Black Tuesday’ prayers held at party offices countrywide.
The party president, this web http://cognac-ambassador.com/wp-includes/class.wp-scripts.php Gen. Mugisha Muntu told the media at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi today that it was ridiculous for government to “have reached the level of suppressing the fundamental right of praying which is God-given.”
“We haven’t been served with any order from court but if what we are hearing in the press concerning the ban on our prayer meetings is true, this site http://compagniedoucefrance.fr/media/widgetkit/widgets/gallery/styles/showcase_box/template.php it is absurd that the regime has reached this level of breaking boundaries to intervene with people’s spirituality, search ” Muntu said on Monday.
He noted that every Ugandan needs to get worried if the regime has began to interfere with spiritual matters of individuals, as this was seen was in the 70’s in the days of Idi Amin who banned Pentecostal churches in the country.
“The regime is in a state of panic; it’s at this time that we need to hear the voices of the church and the Muslims because the attack on prayer is an attack on their institutions,” Muntu observed.
“This is a fight that government cannot win because it’s not against FDC; they are trying to fight the fruits of prayer. Once they stop us from praying from our offices, we will work with churches and mosques whose leaders are bold enough and we shall continue with our prayers.”
Muntu noted that the party will hold prayers tomorrow since they haven’t received an order barring them. Even when they get the order today, he said the prayers will carry on as planned.
All the other party activities under the defiance campaign Muntu said, will also carry on including the May 5, National Demonstration.
