Self-styled Bishop David Kiganda of Christianity Focus Center in Mengo -Kisenyi has said all street preachers will be given identity cards in a bid to help them carry out their activities.
The development comes in the wake of a decree passed by the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) barring street preaching, with claims the preachers interrupt other business activities. The KCCA also banned screen and loud speaker advertising.
After the ban, on April 25 KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Musisi Semakula met with the religious groups to deliberate on how best to regulate their activities.
Subsequently, the committee led by Kiganda was given six weeks to research and file a report justifying why street preachers should remain in the city.
And, during a meeting with the street preachers convened at the Makerere Full Gospel Church today, Kiganda said he would form an umbrella body to that will address their challenges.
Speaking at the same meeting another self=styled Bishop Herbert Buyondo of the ‘Born Again Federation’ asked KCCA to gazette some streets where the preachers can carry out their activities.
