Uganda: Ntagali Condemns Kadaga Shrine Visit

From All Africa (Uganda)

The visit by the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga to a shrine at Nhendha hill in Iganga District is facing more scrutiny with the Anglican Church saying "it's confusing" and for a leader of her calibre "it might cause others to stumble."

In a statement, Church of Uganda Archbishop Stanley Ntagali said: "We value our ancestors because we are connected to them. But, we must always trust only in God. We no longer need to go through the spirits of the dead because Jesus is our hope and protector."

"The Church of Uganda condemns syncretism and urges her bishops and clergy to use this opportunity to proclaim the sufficiency of Christ crucified to meet all our needs, and to work pastorally with Christians to apply this glorious truth practically in their lives," he added.
