The army has opened up on claims by Kampala Catholic Archdiocese Archbishop Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga’s claims that the army had planted spies in the church to spy on top religious leaders.

Speaking on Good Friday and Easter masses, Archbishop Lwanga said some intelligence officers were spying on him and giving president Yoweri Museveni wrong reports.

“Our work is not to spy on religious leaders,” said Brig Richard Karemire.

But according to UPDF spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire, the army and intelligence agencies were sticking to their duties of protecting Ugandans – not spying on religious leaders.

“Our work is not to spy on religious leaders,” said Brig Richard Karemire.

Museveni has since called Lwanga and talked to him on the matter.

Apparently, “the matter will be discussed and resolved in due course”, according to senior press secretary Don Wanyama.
