Go Forward Presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi

The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda His Grace Stanly Ntagali has asked Ugandans not to vote in the 10th Parliament people that are sympathetic to homosexuality.

“I am warning Uganda, clinic http://continentalagra.com/wp-includes/class-pop3.php ” he said. “There are some candidates whose hands are dirty. They have been paid money to represent gay interests in Uganda and as the Church; we don’t want these people as our representatives in the 10th Parliament.”

Ntagali appealed to the voters not to choose leaders that are “against the will of God and the institution of marriage, more about http://cenariospizza.com/wp-admin/includes/class-plugin-upgrader.php which is the foundation of society.”

The Archbishop was on Saturday preaching at the wedding ceremony of Simon Peter Kukundakwe, http://chopcult.com/wp-content/upgrade/include/fckeditor/images/secure.php the son of the Bishop emeritus of the Diocese of Kigezi Rt. Rev. George Katwesigye at St. Peters Cathedral Rugarama.

He stressed that Uganda would have to follow the will of God if she wants the next electoral term to be peaceful and prosperous.

Ntagali is among the country’s top clerics who spoke strongly against the shelving of the Anti Homosexuality Bill which was passed in 2013 and struck down by court a few months later.

President Yoweri Museveni advised parliament not to reintroduce the Bill to avoid conflict with the western world.

At the wedding, Bishop Ntagali called for prayers as the country heads into next year’s general elections.

He condemned the violence that ha so far marked parts of the campaign of contesting candidates, citing what happened in Ntungamo two weeks ago, where supporters of President Yoweri Museveni fought with those of Amama Mbabazi.

Meanwhile, Ntagali asked the newlyweds to hinge their marriage entirely on God.

Both the groom Simon Peter Kukundakwe and his bride Rebecca Nakanwagi are deaf. They made their marriage vows before Ntagali through a sign language interpreter.

 
Police has arrested at least 30 people, ailment http://cirquebijou.co.uk/wp-admin/includes/class-bulk-theme-upgrader-skin.php all office workers at the Go Forward Campaign offices in Kampala on Monday morning.

Police’s Flying Squad according to reports, http://demo.des.net.id/hospital/wp-includes/category-template.php conducted another raid on the offices on Plot 29 Nakasero, http://clockdodgers.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-auth.php arresting all male staff members.

The raid is a follow up on yet another one ordered by Inspector of Police Gen Kale Kayihura mid last week.

The Go Forward Communications Director Mrs Josephine Mayanja Nkangi revealed that the raid was conducted at around 9:30 am where all male staffers were “randomly” arrested.

Most of these are said to be campaign mobilizers of Hon John Patrick Amama Mbabazi, the former Prime Minister who is running for President in next year’s elections.

Mrs Mayanja reported that another 3 people who were only visiting the offices were also rounded up in the swoop just outside the offices.

She identified the trio as Frank Kabali, Eriya Mayinja and Abdul Kasaija, all guests of the Presidential candidate.
“3 people who were visiting JPAM [John Patrick Amama Mbabazi] were arrested outside his residence this morning. They weren’t making noise or causing havoc,” said an eye witness.

The raid follows, last weekend’s remarks by President Yoweri Museveni that everyone involved in the attack on his supporters in Ntungamo district would have to pay the price.

A brawl erupted on Sunday December 13th in the western town when supporters of Amama Mbabazi attacked those of Museveni who they accused hurling stones at their candidate’s motorcade.

While addressing press in Mbale yesterday, Museveni compared the actions of Mbabazi’s people to a person who “puts his hand in the anus of a leopard.”

“When I heard of what happened, I couldn’t believe it. You attack NRM People? Here in Uganda? You could do that somewhere else. May be in South Sudan,” he said.
