THE clergy have been urged to emulate the late Bishop Festo Kivengere by reaching out to Ugandans with evangelism. Preaching at a memorial service for Kivengere at All Saints Cathedral Nakasero on Monday, the cathedral provost, the Rev. Canon Stephen Tirwomwe, called upon priests to intensify evangelism to counter increasing immorality.

“There is too much immorality even within the church. Let us preach the gospel of holiness,” Tirwomwe appealed.

Kivengere was one of the products of the great East African Revival that spread evangelism to different parts of the region.

At the time of his death in 1998, he was the regional team leader for the African Evangelistic Enterprise (AEE) and the Bishop of Kigezi Diocese.

Tirwomwe said false preaching was a major reason the church had not significantly impacted on the nation.

He hailed Kivengere for having demonstrated true love and for having been socially active. “If Kivengere were alive today, he would have fought corruption, human sacrifice, sectarianism, homosexuality and the confusion among city pastors,” he noted.

The Family Life Network executive director, Stephen Langa, hailed Kivengere for having written the book: “I love Idi Amin”.
