The politicians say the religious leaders have an obligation to talk for the vulnerable and oppressed thus warning Museveni against threatening them.
Gozanga Ssewungu (Kalungu South MP) said Museveni’s government has killed separation of power in the country.
He challenged Museveni to tell the public who directed the spies into the religious without seeking permission from the top religious leaders.
Moses Kasibante (Lubaga North) said that this equivalent to an attack on the Christian faith and as parliament they will constitute an independent committee to investigate the matter.
Ssempala Kigozi (Makindye) accused Museveni of failing the Islamic religion by placing spies on the clerics, he said that the president is now trying to dismantle the Christians and should be investigated.
However, speaking on behalf of government, Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda said that the matter is being handled by the presidency.
On Easter, Lwanga reiterated his statement that government is recruiting priests, catechists and seminarians to spy on other religious leaders.
However, he warned that whoever is recruited should be truthful to avoid tarnishing other people’s names.
