However, through his twitter account, President Museveni has refuted claims that he supports Kibuuka’s activities adding that he never involves himself in church matters.
“I have received information that former Catholic priest Jacinto Kibuuka claims that i support his activities. This is not true,” Museveni tweeted.
Recently, Kibuuka was announced the second bishop of the Evangelical Orthodox Church (EOC) by the visiting Bishop Jerold Glilege who heads Canada’s EOC on Sunday.
The visiting bishop who held prayers at Namugongo
international prayer centre on Sunday said the numbers of
their followers had grown big in Uganda since Fr. Kibuuka
joined them, therefore he deserved to be bishop. He said,
“Our religion started in 2006 and it has been growing since
Fr Kibuuka joined.”
Kibuuka will be the second bishop after Tom Kiiza
Sibayirwa in Fort portal after his consecration. The consecration of Kibuuka will give him powers to ordain priests, he wants to serve in his church.
