  • For his part, Dr. John Chrysostom Muyingo, the State minister for Higher Education assured Ugandans that the government he’s serving will ensure that the 2021 elections are peaceful.  He said that those who are threatening Ugandans that there will be war after the elections are day dreamers.

The Archbishop of Kampala Dioceses, Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has called upon Ugandans to embrace peace and stop engaging in practices that are likely to cause unrest in the country. 
Speaking at Lubaga Cathedral where he was the main celebrant of the Christmas service, Lwanga said many Ugandans are misusing social media by promoting conspiracies that have the potential of causing a war.
