Deputy Chief Justice Kavuma last week put a ban to all FDC activities over a defiance campaign including prayers

The Vicar general of Kampala Archdiocese, Msgr. Charles Kasibante, has criticised the deputy Chief Justice Stephen Kavuma for banning prayers of Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).

The FDC launched prayers every Tuesday in a campaign dubbed "free my vote" following the Feb 18 disputed elections where the Electoral Commission chief Badru Kigundu declared President Yoweri Musveni a winner with 60% while Dr. Kizza Besigye garnered 35%.

"It's unfortunate to ban prayers because people go to pray to God with their own intentions even though it might not auger well with Government," Msgr. Kasibante said.

Deputy Chief Justice Kavuma last week put a ban to all FDC activities over a defiance campaign including prayers and the countrywide demonstrations planned on May 5 until the temporal injunction applied by the deputy Attorney general Mwesigwa Rukutana is disposed off on August 29.

The cleric argued that demonstration is a constitutional right and therefore, can't be prevented.

Besigye the former presidential candidate and the party leaders insist on independent audit and vowed to conduct countrywide protests.

"Not everything in this country is agreeable but can be tolerated," he said.

He said this on the sidelines during the launch of children with disabilities training centre at Kiwanga, Seeta in Mukono district on Tuesday.

Kasibante appealed to parents not to abandon their disabled children but give them love and care for their growth.

The children's centre is run by Daughters of Charity under Kampala Archdiocese taking care of 18 children with special needs.

The parish priest of Namilyango parish in Lugazi Diocese, Fr.Ignatius Kivumbi called on the children's staff workers to give them necessary support to develop their talents.

"God has given them talents. Let's not think that they are disabled and can do nothing," Fr. Kivumbi said.

Jackline Kahigiriza, the technical advisor of the centre urged parents to take their children to specialized centres for appropriate care and for regular health checkups.
