Bishop Silas Tayebwa asks government to reopen places of worship to prevent escalating immorality
Bishop Silas Tayebwa of King of Kings church Mbarara has asked the government to reopen places of worship and do efficient supervision so that places of worship continue to observe guidelines in the fight against COVID-19 to prevent the escalating immorality.
Bishop Silas who doubles as the National Fellowship of Born Again Pentecostal Churches (NAFBAC) provincial overseer for Greater Mbarara stresses that government should realize that places of worship aren’t only places of worship but they also help in preventing immoral acts including escalating cases of domestic violence through guidance and counselling and other free services that build values, character, morals, hope, peace, discipline in the community.
‘Minister of State for Ethics & Integrity and Scientists should advise the President that more than 98% of Ugandans believe in God and besides that we are fathers of the churches that are now fatherless. So government should consider our concern and reopen places of worship because they are essential,’ Bishop Silas explains.
Various clergy members including the Anglican Archbishop of Uganda, Rt. Rev. Dr. Samuel Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu have raised their voices asking government to reopen places of worship but government is yet to respond to the religious call.
