President Yoweri Museveni
President Yoweri Museveni on Monday held a telephone conversation with the Archbishop of Kampala Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga over concerns expressed by the prelate a few days ago.
A brief statement issued from State House Monday evening said: “President Yoweri Museveni and the Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese, Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, have today spoken over the phone and agreed on a way forward.”
“The discussion followed the Archbishop's remarks on Good Friday to a congregation at Old Kampala playgrounds and at Rubaga Cathedral that an anonymous caller had said he was masterminding a plot to overthrow the Government. The matters will be discussed and resolved in due course,” concluded the statement.
Lwanga, on Good Friday alleged that the Government and its security organs were recruiting the clergy and other religious in his Church to spy on him. He said he had also been warned of a plot to assassinate him like the former Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, the late Janani Luwum.
