Kitabi Seminary Old Boys Association (KISOBA) has learnt with profound shock and dismay of the actions of the RDC, DPC and DISO Buhweju, who stormed Bihanga Parish Church on 30th January 2016 and disrupted overnight prayers preceded by the Eucharistic celebration.
The celebration of mass is a sacred act to the catholic community and any attempts to disrupt such by anyone irrespective of their status is an affront on the deepest of our beliefs and at the very least sacrilegious. Such actions call for spiritual cleansing of the offenders.
Decency would demand that the belligerent actors deliver an unequivocal and unconditional apology to the Parish Priest, the catholic community of Bihanga Parish and the Archbishop under whose jurisdiction the parish falls. Four days since, nothing of the sort has been done.
We join the rest of the catholic community of Mbarara Archdiocese and Uganda in general in condemning in the strongest terms possible the actions of the trio. We also appeal to the office of His Excellency the President and the Inspector General of Police to reign on the errant officers and to assure the catholic community in Uganda that such acts shall not happen again and the freedom of worship as enshrined in our cherished constitution shall be respected by agents of the state. Uganda has come from far, we should not regress. Let sanity prevail
