The support will be coordinated through a network composed of more than 1,000 pastors.
The Uganda Pastors’ Network, an organisation of more than 1,000 born-again Christian pastors, has said they would work with government a head of the 2016 polls.
The announcement was made by Pr Moses Ngolobe on Sunday at Terbenacle Center International in Namungoona during a function orgainised to pray for the nation as well as thanking God for President Museveni’s decision to sign the anti-gay law.
The function was graced by Vice President Edward Ssekandi. “We thank God for our leaders and the President in particular. We ask God to grant this government another term in office,” said Pr Ngolobe. He said there had been a gap between pastors and government; however, he added pastors had formed a network that would bridge the gap.
Speaking to a visibly excited congregation the Vice President said the anti-homosexuality law was not made in bad faith but in the spirit of protecting Uganda’s culture values and norms.
