Lira Resident City Commissioner, Lawrence Emmy Egole has intervened in the affairs of Yahweh Pentecostal Christians hailing from the districts that make up Lango sub-region.
Christians of Yahweh Pentecostal churches from districts that make up Lango sub region have in the past accused government officials and security of colluding with their fellow Pentecostal Assemblies of God in the dispute over church ownership and land , a matter that is in court.
Following several complaints with no success, the Christians petitioned President Museveni in a letter they handed to the Lira RCC.
According to the leader of the Yahweh Pentecostal Mission, Bishop Joel Mukalu they decided to petition the president through the RCC after betrayal by the area Members of Parliament.
Speaking in response, the RCC promised to deliver the petition to President Museveni.
He asked the Christians to remain calm in the process of waiting for the president’s response noting that he is a person who listens to everyone’s concern regardless of their status.
However, there was chaos as police led by the DPC, Joseph Bakaleke fired teargas to disperse some of the group members. END
