FDC party president Gen. Mugisha Muntu has defied a court order banning opposition activities and recalled the Tuesday prayers.
While addressing journalists at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi, Muntu said they will continue holding Tuesday prayer sessions.
“It is our spiritual right,” the retired Maj General said.
He said FDC has not yet received any orders from court stopping the defiance campaign.
“Tomorrow, we shall have go ahead with our Tuesday prayers nationwide as usual.”
He requested religious leaders to come out and pronounce themselves about the issue of Court stopping prayers because prayers are not an FDC issue.
“Prayers are above the national constitution and human laws, prayers are under God’s laws.”
“If police decide to close Najjanankumbi in an attempt to block our prayers, we as FDC shall go and pray from churches and mosques.”
On Friday, a ruling by deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma, banned FDC’s ‘defiance campaign” barring the party from holding its weekly prayers at various party offices countrywide and any political mobilisation until August 29.
FDC founding President Dr Kizza Besigye defied the ruling calling it unfair and unfounded.
He said Kavuma had no right to stop people from praying unless he wanted to change the motto of the country to “For God and Kavuma”.
