Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has stopped the redevelopment of St. Matia Mulumba church, Old Kampala pending approval of the building plan.

This was revealed by Francis Ssenabulya, the head of the Church on Sunday during the celebrations to mark 34 years since the inception of the church on January 1, 1984.

On the same day, the Christians who turned out in big numbers celebrated 132 years since the martyrdom of Saint Matia Mulumba which occurred on May 30, 1888. Eleven couples were wedded to celebrate Mulumba’s martyrdom.

“Last year, KCCA halted our construction works saying that it was not to up standard. However, the management has been meeting KCCA to address all issues to do with the construction work on the project and others constructions and repairs in the parish,” Ssenabulya said.

Ssenabulya also assured the Christians that the money which was collected for the development is safe.

Ssenabulya requested City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago who was the chief guest at the function to help them acquire the land behind the church.

“We have also embarked on the process of renewing the lease which has three years to expire,” Ssenabulya noted.

He tasked Christians to enroll their children in seminaries to become nuns, least they will need missionaries to come back to preach the word of God.

The Bishop Emeritus of Lugazi Catholic diocese, Dr. Mathias Ssekamanya who presided over the wedding of the couples implored them  to play their roles if they are to enjoy their marriages.

“Just like our body parts, I implore each of you to play your roles in order to have a prosperous marriage,” Ssekamanya said.

Ssekamanya also advised the couples to use natural family planning methods, which he said is safe.  “The modern family planning is poisonous,” he said.
