Makerere University Chancellor Prof. Apolo Nsibambi has castigated homosexuality, saying it had rocked the university.
â€œI am saddened that homosexuality has reached the university. As the chancellor, I condemn such acts but such people must be prayed for so that they see the light and change their behaviour,â€ Nsibambi said.
He said this at a thanks-giving ceremony for Matayo Kibanda, the new priest of Makerere East parish at Bunamwaya Church on Sunday.
Nsibambi asked the public to develop a culture of gratitude.
He was responding to remarks by the Archbishop, Henry Orombi, that one of the challenges facing the church was homosexuality.
Orombi said the church cut its relationship with the US Episcopal Church over homosexuality.
He expressed concern over the deteriorating relationships between Christians and their church leaders.
Orombi decried the spiritual shrinking of the church in western countries where churches have been bought by Muslims and turned into mosques.
