Museveni orders rebuilding of Demolished Church

President Museveni has ordered the suspension of the judge who signed the court order permitting the demolition of St Peter’s Church in Ndeeba.

While visiting the site of the recently demolished St Peter’s Church in Ndeeba this morning, the president also recommended that the Church may retain the land and a new church be built.

The president has indicated that he will sit and dialogue with the Archbishop of Uganda and Area legislator Kato Paul Lubwama to find a proper solution to the matter.

“I am saddened by this incident and I give the church assurances that those complicit will be punished. Even if the church was in the wrong, ordering demolition was extreme. Dialogue would have resolved this matter.” Museveni said

“Judges should have limits and understand public interest. Demolishing a church is a curse.” He added in a Facebook update

The Head of State has also ordered for the immediate suspension and probe of the Judge in question, and the acclaimed landowners be investigated.
