Barely a day after the demolition of St Peter’s Church in Ndeeba, the parishioners and concerned residents have started reorganizing to restore the house of worship.
The Church was razed down in the wee hours of Monday morning climaxing four decades of the property wrangle between the Church of Uganda and the joint administrators of the estate of the late princess, Evelyn Nachwa.
The demolition of the Church building drew emotions from the parishioners, some whom couldn’t hold back their tears.
This prompted the State House Anti-Corruption
Unit to swing into action and pick up several individuals that had guided the
action despite the trail of paperwork allowing the demolition.
Patrick Wakonye, one of the lay leaders at the church, says following their outcry to the authorities, they have been allowed to reorganize and rebuild the church as the matter is being resolved legally.
Mr.Patrick on church;….
He says they will reconstruct the church using contributions from willing members.
However, the church leaders admitted that they lost the battle over the ownership of the disputed land in high court. ENDS .
