Buganda should be re-dedicated to God according to Bishop Lwere Joshua.
The comments were made when Christians gathered at Victory Christian Church in Ndeeba to dedicate Buganda Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga and his reign to God. The Katikkiro arrived at the church at around 11:00am with his wife, Buganda ministers and other cultural leaders.
The prayer session was presided over by Dr. Joseph Serwadda and Bishop Joshua Lwere alongside other pastors. Bishop Lwere, the overseer of National Fellowship of Born Again Pentecostal Churches, said Buganda lost its glory because of rebelling against God. “When Mutesa I invited missionaries to Buganda and dedicated the kingdom to God, God blessed Buganda but when we failed to walk in the principles and values of God we lost our glory. We therefore ask the Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi to rededicate Buganda to God and outlaw divination (Obusamize),” Lwere said.
He said the East African Revival which was embraced in western Uganda but rejected in Buganda is a clear sign of God’s work sighting the current blessings and power the west. He stated that Buganda’s glory will only be restored if the Kabaka commits the Kingdom to God and detaches it from all ungodly cultural practices which do not glorify God.
The Katikkiro was then anointed by Dr. Joseph Serwadda and prayed that God would give him the wisdom and prophetic revelations which Biblical premiers like Joseph and Daniel had.
In his speech, the Katikkiro thanked the born again Christians for prayer service they had organized for him. Dr. Serwadda donated a Bible to the premier and advised him to always read it for wisdom and guidance in his leadership.
