Thousands of born again Christians last Sunday gathered at Victory Christian Church, Ndeeba to dedicate Buganda katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga and his reign to God.
The katikkiro arrived at the church at around 11:00am in the company of his wife, Buganda ministers and other cultural leaders.
During the prayer service, which was presided over by Dr. Joseph Serwadda and Bishop Joshua Lwere alongside other pastors, the pentecostal leaders asked the Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, to rededicate Buganda to God.
Giving various examples of great empires that emerged and collapsed, Bishop Lwere said Buganda lost its glory because of rebelling against God.
Lwere, the overseer of National Fellowship of Born Again Pentecostal churches said the sins of bloodshed, witchcraft/sorcery and sexual promiscuity defile the land and cause the glory of God to depart from a community.
“When Mutesa I invited missionaries to Buganda and dedicated the kingdom to God, God blessed Buganda. But when we failed to walk in the principles and values of God, we lost our glory. We, therefore, ask the Kabaka to rededicate Buganda to God and abolish divination/sorcery (Obusamize),” Lwere told the Katikkiro.
He gave the example of the East African revival which was embraced in western Uganda but rejected in Buganda as the springboard for the current blessings and power the people from western Uganda are enjoying.
Dr. Joseph Serwadda annointed the katikkiro and prayed that God would give him the wisdom and prophetic revelations which Biblical premiers like Joseph and Daniel had.
He requested the katikkiro to add his voice on the call upon the Government to release all the prisoners as the Bible requires before the jubilee season ends on October 9, 2013.
