    This is quite sickening that the pope would bless an evil woman who is planning on Murder and genocide on her own people, he should be ashamed of himself. There is no God in Uganda if this Heinous Act is allowed to pass

      Why do u say Kadaga is planning murder and genocide? You dont know her. Please dont base your judgement on heresys. Why the hatred? Focus your hatred on evils like homosexuality which caused the destruction of citys like Sodom and Gommorah.
      We sane Ugandans want the best for our children. Leave Kadaga alone,she may have made some mistakes as a human being but you have no basis of calling her a murderer.
      Are you mentally and spiritualy stable? And you say there is no God in Uganda, where is he? Please wake up you must have gone to dreamland, if not you must be insane.
