A priest has advised government to encourage its intelligence services to spy on religious groups.
Speaking at the book that investigated the 2000 Kibwetere cult which ended up killing its followers, Fr. Paul Irumba tasked the government to constantly evaluate and update intelligence networks to avoid the repeat of such nasty incident.
While launching a book titled ‘The Kanungu Tragedy ‘ in Kampala, the prime minister of Uganda, Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda also cautioned the public about false prophets.
The book written by Fr. Nasisio Bagulumuziza is about the movement of the restoration of the 10 commandments of God and unearthing of the mystery behind the 17th March 2000 incident that saw more than 1,000 people burnt by Joseph Kibwetere in Kanungu.
“I urge the public to be more cautious about these false prophets because it was due to a false prophet that saw more than 1,000 people perish in fire in Kanungu in 2000,” said Dr. Rugunda.
The author however said his research did not find out if Kibwetere the cult leader was actually burnt in the fire or he still lives.
