With anger, Kabale Catholic Diocese has allegedly petitioned President Museveni, accusing a minister for being sectarian.
In a leaked letter that has been making several rounds on social media, the catholic church accuses state minister for planning in the ministry of Finance David Bahati of causing division between the protestant and catholic churches.
On the letter dated 24th December 2020, Catholics claimed that minister Bahati has used president Museveni’s name to sabotage government programs intended for Catholics diverting them to protestants.
In the copy which was received by the speaker of parliament of Uganda, Catholics accused minister Bahati of fighting almost every catholic who stood against a Protestants whether NRM or opposition though he is the party chairperson for Kabale district.
They cited that minister Bahati fought the Kabale district woman Member of Parliament Hon Catherine Ndamira during 2020 NRM primaries while contesting with Enid Origumisiriza (AUNT ENID) and unfortunately his side lost terribly.
Minister Bahati later funded hon. Enid Origumisiriza to again stand against the Kabale district NRM woman Member of Parliament flag bearer Catherine Ndamira but to their disappointment she defeated them hands down in the last concluded general elections.
Angry Catholics also accused minister Bahati of demeaning catholic functions compared to Protestants especially on church fundraising and youth meetings
Yearning Catholics again accused minister Bahati of influencing operation wealth creation program in Kabale especially Ndorwa west where the beneficiaries are mainly protestants and to add on that one must be loyal to Bahati.
The Catholics lastly accused Bahati of using president Museveni’s name to side line catholic, humiliation of priests among others.
In conclusion, the Catholics appealed to president Museveni for a quick intervention otherwise NRM is in the lean of falling in Kigezi region.
