Oulanyah, also the Omoro County MP, had pledged Shs100m as his contribution to the Church House campaign dubbed Love Gift whose aim is to clear a Shs60bn debt owed to Equity Bank.

The Archbishop of Church of Uganda, Rt Rev Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu, received the money from the Speaker this Thursday at his residence in Namirembe in Kampala. Earlier in the year, Archbishop Kaziimba asked Christians to contribute money to clear the debt incurred during the construction of the Church House.

Months ago, in June 2021, during the Uganda Martyrs’ Day Celebrations, Speaker Oulanyah pledged Shs100m to the project. And today, he has fulfilled his pledge as the church seeks more money to clear its debt.

The Speaker also cleared his pledge of Shs20m to help in the purchase of five solar lights for the Martyrs Shrine at Nakiyanja in Namugongo.

While delivering the money, the politician from Omoro said he was delighted to honour his pledge to aid in the smooth running of the Church and its projects. “I made a pledge and the onus is on me to honour it; it has not been easy to collect such a lump sum which is why I asked for six months and I am pleased to deliver as promised,” said Oulanyah.

For his part, Archbishop Kaziimba said that it was indeed the calling of God to have Oulanyah as one of the leaders to support the call and deliver on it. He praised the Speaker for keeping his word and declared God’s blessings upon him.

“Many make these kinds of promises and never deliver. This implies that you are God-sent and a leader of his word; that is why God elevated you from being a Deputy Speaker to the Speaker of Parliament and He shall continue to manifest in you through various ways,” said the Archbishop.

Kazimba further requested Oulanyah to intervene in Kumi Diocese where Rev Charles Okunya has sworn it will be him to be appointed Bishop or nobody. “Rev Okunya has caused disturbance amongst the Christians of Kumi for refusing to heed the Church’s recommendation and insisted that he must be consecrated as Bishop. The Church will not appoint him forcefully,” the Archbishop said. (For comments on this story, call, text or whatsapp us on 0705579994 [whatsapp line], 0779411734, 0200900416 or email us
