Honorable Eric Musana who is the legislator for Buyaga East in the 11th Parliament and Uganda’s representative in the Pan African Parliament has pleaded to the president to lessen on the 60 days set to keep the worship places under lockdown as a measure to curb the spread of the deadly COVID 19 pandemic.
Musana on one of the WhatsApp platforms where he is a member, wrote saying that;
The president misrepresented the church in his address. He must revise the 60days mentioned in his address.
The scientists who briefed ought to review the idea on reopening of church services.
Church members do not move or board vehicles for prayers. It’s a manageable cluster of society. Church goers are in a defined community.
The churches have exhibited the best standard of observing SOPs of late. This is a clear call on the president and the national COVID task force to revise the directive on churches.
The church as an institution has contributed tremendously in settling the souls, and people’s faith, hope, and life during this COVID.
Actually, if government excluded the church in the fight against COVID, then we may not be successfully manage the pandemic.
Criminality is on the rise due to lack of hope. This was the duty of the church to give hope to us.
Curse all demons with people who want to do evil, shape minatory in society.
The president must re-address the country as soon as possible on how churches should conduct service to us.
If not done, we may see a lot of anarchy in society, death, lawlessness and eventual total breakdown.
The third wave may even come earlier than expected
