The Christian Community in Makerere University has in the very recent past been at the centre of a brewing controversy and conspiracy manned by highly respected and prominent individuals. The spirit of this public statement is not accusation or a smear campaign. As the Christian Union in Makerere, following the making of independent and unbiased investigations, we have come to certain vital conclusions that we now bring to the attention of the public. This is not in the spirit of balancing precision, but in the very spirit of men like Martin Luther who stood for what they believed, we understand that we are ‘not only responsible for what we say but also for what we do not say.’ Silence is itself a weapon but evil festers when good men do nothing. Scripture implores us to prove all things [1 Thessalonians 5:21]. Therefore, we take this course for the benefit of the innocent Christian whose mind has been tarnished by baseless and concocted allegations and for that believer to whom we owe accountability in the line of the other side of the coin to this story.
Makerere University is a secular institution with freedom of worship as constitutionally guaranteed. It has a Christian Union with over one hundred fellowships that ascribe to the non-denominational call. Several churches, pastors and organizations with a genuine interest in the raising of a God fearing generation of youths participate in these numerous fellowships. Of note is the Fellowship of Christian Unions (FOCUS). The Christian Union is eternally grateful for their input.
We salute you in the name of Jesus Christ.
