Parliament on Thursday held the inter-denominational religious prayers to mark the beginning of the 5th Session, of the 10th Parliament.

 

 

 

The prayers were held at the South Wing Parking, which is now the temporary chamber due to COVID 19, whose focus was to pray for the three arms of government; Executive, Parliament, Judiciary, and Civil service.

 

 

 

The intercessions were led by Justice Helen Obura, Hon. Molly Lanyero, Canon Mary Okurut, and Ruth Byoona. 

 

 

 

During her speech, speaker Rebecca Kadaga called on the government to reconsider opening places of worship that are temporarily closed, as a way of curbing the spread of coronavirus.

 

 

She urged the government to discuss further so that these places are open and people in the country can go to worship God, after all, Uganda's motto is, "For God and my country."

 

 

 

This will be the last inter-denominational prayers for the 10th parliament as this will be their last session before the elections in 2021.
