Govt to De-register 'False Churches'

Government has said it is committed to eliminating fake religious institutions and individuals exploiting believers.
Fr. Simon Lokodo, the State Minister for Ethics and Integrity, says Government has noted with concern the growing number of the different churches and efforts are being made to regulate them.
Lokodo says that Government is working on ensuring that whoever comes out as an apostle, a pastor, a reverend, a prophet must have some clearance from a mainstream church and have a clear background and history.
He says Government is formulating a religious faith based organisation policy whose other role will be to register and to de-register the religious faith based organisation, the pastors, churches and institutions that defraud, and have what he called ill practices.
He says this will ensure that their originality is identified, know where they are operating from for the country to be safe, and not allowing for the operation on the guise of religiosity.

Luweero Security Committee Suspends Parking Fees

The Luweero district security committee has suspended collection of taxi park fees following protests among the drivers along Kampala-Gulu highway. 
On Monday this week drivers staged a demonstration and refused to transport passengers in protest of the continued daily and multiple taxes even after President Yoweri Museveni directed that they should stop.
They mounted barricades along Kampala-Gulu highway and paralysed transport demanding that collection of parking fees be stopped as directed by the President 
On Thursday, a crisis meeting was convened at Luweero town council hall between the taxi drivers, town clerks, Police and chairpersons of Luweero town councils.
In the meeting the taxi drivers pilled pressure on town clerks of Wobulenzi, Bombo and Luweero towns to implement Museveni's directive or else they renew the protests. 
In reply, the town clerks lead by Muluuta Mugagga of Luweero town insisted that they had not seen the letter and that it was addressed to Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda who is yet to communicate to them.   
The the meeting resolved that the collection of parking fees be suspended for two weeks. 
Bob Ssemakula, the Luweero District Internal Security Officer, who chaired the meeting said that the two weeks will enable the district Chief Administrative Officer to consult and seek guidance on the matter.
Ali Mutebi, the Chairperson of Bulemezi Taxi Operators Cooperative Society, which is in charge of Luweero taxi park, said that they will adhere to the suspension to give chance for dialogue on the matter.

South Sudan not ready for 2018 elections, says UN

The United Nations says it is concerned by plans to have elections in war-torn South Sudan next year. The South Sudan government last week announced it would go ahead with the polls in mid 2018, despite a bloody civil war that has lasted more than three years.
The UN Special Envoy to the African Union, Haile Menkerios, says the situation in South Sudan is currently not conducive for the holding of elections as announced by the government.Speaking at a joint Security Council meeting between the UN and the African Union in Addis Ababa, Mr Menkerios instead urged the warring parties to focus on implementing a peace deal signed two years ago.The agreement, which established a transitional government, has however failed to hold. Instead, fighting has spread into parts of South Sudan that were previously largely peaceful.
The UN says more than four million people have been displaced both internally and externally since fighting broke out in December 2013.
