The final event on Pope Francis’ agenda on Saturday was a meeting with priest, ailment religious, and seminarians in Kampala cathedral.

Putting aside his prepared text, Pope Francis spoke off the cuff in his native Spanish, highlighting three essential points for the clergy – memory, fidelity, prayer – and seeking to strengthen the Christian faith in their country.

The Pope told them to keep alive the testimony of the Ugandan martyrs, not allowing themselves to “become too comfortable with superficial memories of the past, but continuing to be authentic witnesses to the faith today.”

The leader of the Catholic Church urged the priests and religious to “remain faithful, following the way of holiness of the martyrs and being good missionaries.

Noting that there are dioceses in the country that have many clergy and others that have very few, the Pope said “fidelity means having a diocesan bishop who is generous in offering priests to a neighbouring diocese that is in need.”

He also stressed that fidelity is only possible through prayer.

If a priest or religious stops praying because he or she has too much work, he said, then they begin to lose their memory and their fidelity.

Prayer means constantly confessing our sins, the Pope concluded, not leading a double life but asking for forgiveness and for the strength to keep the missionary spirit alive.

The Director of Public prosecution (DPP) Mike Chibita has asked Buganda Road Court grade one magistrate Mary Kaitesi Lukwago to close the case file where UPC Party president and fourteen others are charged with trespassing at Uganda House.

This request was backed by a letter brought to court by State prosecutor Emilly Ninsiima from the office of the DPP informing the judge that the Directorate had lost interest and withdrawn from this case.

The request however was opposed by counsels Mulema Mukasa and David Sempala, about it http://cystiphane-biorga.com/wp-admin/includes/theme.php the private prosecutors who have been handling this matter together with the DPP’s office.  These asked the magistrate not to close this case file because the DPP never followed the legal requirements in the process.

“We would like to seek for court’s indulgence in this matter because for us we are ready to proceed with the hearing.  We have six witnesses in court who have already recorded their statements at Police which we have already copied to this court and the office of the DPP” Mulema submitted.

Mulema added that the DPP before withdrawing from this case never consulted them as is required by the constitution.

“Although the DPP has the powers to discontinue the hearing of any case before judgment, it only applies to the cases he has started; but for the cases which were started by private prosecutors he has to seek their decision first which he has not done in this case.”

David Sempala the other private prosecutor argued that being that the accused were not in court at the point when the DPP withdrew from the case yet a warrant of arrest was issued against them, this would encourage perpetuation and contempt of court among the members of the society.

State prosecution however argued that since the DPP took over the matter after filing in an application, he reserved full powers to withdraw this case.

The magistrate has set January 15, 2016 to pronounce her ruling on this matter and extended the warrant of arrest for the fifteen accused to the same date.

The accused persons are  Hon Jimmy Akena, Hon Maxwell Akora , Hon Fred Ebil, Hon Betty Amongi, Higenyi Kemba,  Richard Angweri,  Patrick Mwondha, Night Kulabako, Gideon Akomu, Ms Kallen Mugizi,  Brenda Atim,  Fahad Kilyiri , Patrick Aroma,  Josephine Babirye  and others still at large.

These are said to have forcefully entered the property of M/s Milton Obote Foundation
and occupied a sixth floor of Uganda House thus disrupting business there.
