Archbishop of the Orthodox Church, Metropolitan Jonah Lwanga, has warned that
the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party will soon collapse because
it has disturbed the nation so much”.
“We are going to suffer human rights abuse until NRM is dissolved. And it (NRM) is going to dissolve very soon. I say this prophetically, it is not going to be there because it has disturbed this nation very much. It is going to dissolve,” Metropolitan Lwanga said.
“And when it dissolves, then things will go wonderfully.”
Metropolitan Lwanga made the remarks while delivering his belated Easter message at the Orthodox Secretariat on Namungoona Hill, Kampala.
He was responding to a question on the rampant cases of killings and violation of human rights in the country.
Without mentioning what will happen, Metropolitan Lwanga castigated the four judges of the Supreme Court who dismissed the appeal challenging the constitutional amendment that scrapped the presidential age limit from the country’s constitution.
Metropolitan Lwanga told the media that the current political problems and situation in the country have been caused by Born-again preachers whom he accused of misleading people into thinking that being very rich makes one important before God.
NRM secretary general Richard Todwong while responding to Lwanga’s comments he said that Archbishop is free to enjoy the freedom of speech which NRM government gave to this country.
