Kampala RCC Denies Chasing Preachers Off the Streets
Kampala Resident City Commissioner, Hudu Hussein has debunked reports that he ordered men and women of God to stop disseminating the gospel on the streets of Kampala.
Reports emerged last week that indicated the Hudu had given street preachers only 30 days to leave the streets of Kampala.
In a statement, the RCC has distanced himself from the reports saying that he cannot fight God.
“I would rather deal with those other challenges Kampala is facing than daring to limit the rights of those serving their God. Honestly, who am I to make war with God. My President is a very religious and God-fearing man, and he is my inspiration. I cannot do something that he himself cannot do. I emphasize that I cannot and did not say anything about chasing street preachers. I referred to street children, among other issues,” he said in a statement released on Saturday.
He went on to say that there is need to regulate the street preachers.
“For example, some go straight to people in their vehicles, either insult them or even grab them. Others erect loud speakers where their voice would be enough. I know that some street preachers go overboard not because of the content of what they preach but because of the way they do it. So, much as the preaching should go on, there’s need for the leaders of the street preachers to look into those issues I have mentioned.”
