Uganda: Police Attempt to Stop “Illegal” Prayer Service

The Monitor reports that a group of around 10 policemen with batons and a dog attempted to shut down a Christian prayer service held over New Year’s Eve at Kabale Main Stadium, saying the meeting was illegal and posed a security threat, but managed only to stop the event for a short period of time. Prayers resumed once the chief of police arrived at the scene after Pastor Aloysious Kiiza, the organizer, produced a letter from the police authorizing him to hold the event.
