Church leaders have asked the government to institute measures to deter born-again churches from false teachings and cultism.
As the churches, through the National Steering committee on False Teaching Awareness campaign, remember the Kanungu massacre this week, they have also demanded that the government makes public the Kanungu massacre report.
Addressing a press conference at Pearl restaurant Nakasero yesterday, kampala Diocese assistant Bishop, the Rev. David Zac Niringye, said, “In remembrance of six years after the Kanungu Kibwetere cult massacre, Christian leaders are calling upon the government to strengthen the law for registering and monitoring the activities of religious and other faith-based organisations to avoid mushrooming cults from harming Uganda.”
He said churches must be re-examined because people’s lives depend on them.
“It is very unfortunate that the NGO bill, which we though would focus on security in churches didn’t address this,” he said.
The leaders said the commemoration week was not linked to the recent church tragedy in which 26 people died in Kalerwe Nsooba, Kampala.
