The head of traditional faith in Uganda, Sabakabona Aligaweesa Jumba, has called upon Ugandans to join believers in African religion at Walusi in Luwero for end-of-year prayer fete.
On December 31st, people of different faiths including Christians, gather in different spaces to celebrate end-of-year and usher themselves into a new year. Tondism believers will also usher in the year with prayers, says Mr Jumba, who says they are being joined by a delegation from Bunyoro led by Kabona Ndahura Apuuli.
Mr Jumba told this website via telephone that it was important to pray for the country which has gone through so many trials in 2018. He named among others, flooded rivers and accidents which have claimed so many lives.
“We condemn loss of lives which has taken place this year, including human sacrifices and murders,” the Tondism leader said, “We encourage Ugandans to spend their money sparingly. Let them save because the economic situation is not getting any better,” Jumba said, adding that Ugandans should start taking pride in their cultures because lack of it has robbed them of hope and happiness.
Mr Jumba said Uganda needed cleansing of evil that is sweeping through its borders, explaining that believers in Tondism were going “to pray for peace and prosperity in 2019”.
He also said that believers in Tondism were commissioning a prayer center at Walusi with a sitting capacity of 520 people.
He also announced that in March 2019, Tondism faith will be launched at Namboole stadium.
