The Archbishop made these statements while at Rubaga Cathedral delivering his Christmas Homily. He says this section of Ugandans on social media are now spreading all forms of fake news against him.
This is viewed as partly a response to comments directed towards him following a statement by the Uganda Joint Christian Council which he read early this week. The statement sought a postponement of elections and amendment of the constitution to keep Museveni in power for another three years without a popular mandate.
“There is too much misuse of social media, too much fake news. People were on social media spreading lies, abusing me, and saying all sorts of things. That I have been bought (by Museveni). If you ask such people to provide proof, they can never get it. I ask you to use social media to say the truth, avoid spreading fake news,” Lwanga said.
Threats against him
He also added that a certain group of Ugandans is threatening him. They are accusing him and other religious leaders of trying to frustrate National Unity Platform Presidential Flagbearer, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine.
“Certain people on social media are accusing me and other religious leaders of harboring ill intentions against Bobi Wine. One of them even called me and said that religious leaders want to kill Bobi Wine by poisoning the hostia (Eucharist bread). These people have apparently asked Bobi Wine to stop taking holy communion in church or not pray in certain churches for such a reason. Can you imagine!” Lwanga wondered.
Kizito Lwanga also discouraged those that are insisting that the statement was entirely his. He also added that it was a statement issued as a chairman of UJCC representing other leaders.
