UGANDAN PRESIDENT MEETS ARCHBISHOP OF KAMPALA OVER LATTER’S FEARS OF BEING SPIED ON

ENTEBBE-- Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has held a private meeting with the Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, following claims by the archbishop on Easter Sunday that Government has planted priests to spy on him.

The two leaders met Sunday evening at Nakasero State Lodge in Kampala. On Easter Monday, President Museveni spoke with Lwanga over the phone and they later agreed to meet on a way forward on ironing out these and other matters.

Investigations are underway by the relevant authorities.

On Good Friday, Lwanga said an anonymous caller had told him that the government had recruited priests, nuns and other clergy as undercover agents. Two days later, while leading Easter prayers at Rubaga Cathedral in Kampala, the Archbishop reiteracted his stance on spies.

Security Minister General Elly Tumwiine said the State spies on anyone who does wrong things and that the Archbishop need not worry if he not doing anything that warrants spying on him.

Some MPs have called for a probe into the claims of spies on the church.

In his recent comments, which significantly thrust him in local headlines, Lwanga appealed to President Museveni to be wary of false information supplied to him by some security agents.
