Drama ensued at Kashozi church of Uganda in eastern division Rukungiri municipality on Sunday 10th March 2019, when the lay reader Stephen Asiimwe left the Christians in church amidst the prayers.
It all started on Feb. 24th 2019 when Christians accused Rauben Turyahikayo the head of laity of writing a letter inviting the North Kigezi diocesan Bishop Benon Magezi to lay a foundation stone at the church without the consent of the Christians.
Christians also accuse the church leaders for mishandling church funds, disrespect, conducting secret night meetings, untimely changing of church administrators among others.
They also said that since Steven Asiimwe took over as the lay reader and the appointment of Turyahikayo as the head of laity, divisions have emerged in the church some Christians have since abandoned and boycotted church arrangements.
Efforts to get a comment from Asiimwe were futile since he refused to comment on the allegations leveled against him.
However Turyahikayo noted that Kweshumbire, the former fathers union leader is behind all this because he mobilized Christians to demonstrate and disrupt yesterdays church service
Turyahikayo revealed that the issues started a few months ago when Allen Biryaija and Charles Kweshumbire mothers union and fathers union leaders respectively were removed from the church leadership un willingly.
This is not the first time Christians are turning rowdy against their leadership in North Kigezi diocese, last month Christians at Kyatoko Church of Uganda were at loggerheads with their parish priest Rev. Julius Nuwagaba accusing him of spearheading the transfer of their lay reader Norah Ntegyereize whom they claimed had boosted the development of their church.
