The bishop of Kinkiizi diocese Rt Rev Dan Zoreeka has criticised the Ugandan police for beating the supporters of opposition.
Zoreeka while talking to Christians who had turned up for Sunday services at St Peters Cathedral Nyakantale asked security personal to guard Ugandans instead of punishing them for supporting opposition.
He said he supports the NRM government but does not support the undermining of human rights.
He further asked Christians to guard environment and stop the use of polythene bags, which are destroying environment at high speed.
Zoreeka wondered why government has kept deaf on the polythene bags and the reclamation of swamps for farming and other activities in the low lands which has led environment changes.
Meanwhile, the diocesan secretary con Benard Bagaba has asked Christians to seek guidance from God. Bagaba said “God can’t come nearer to us when we are in wars”.
About 87 Christians were confirmed with a call to follow church norms as Bishop started his journey of rotating in the diocese.
