Outspoken Fr. Geatano Batanyenda, the Parish Priest for Kitanga Catholic Church has blessed Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye on arrival at Kitanga play ground in Rukiga county before he addressed a rally.
Fr. Batanyenda has asked Besigye to always remember Lord even after being elected Uganda’s new president.
Fr Batanyenda came under attack from various circles recently for blessing independent presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi, days after he blessed the incumbent.
He however maintains that he is ready to bless all presidential candidates because all of them are children of God and require his blessings.
Besigye started his campaigns in Kabale district this morning with rallies at Kamwezi, Kitanga, Muhanga, Kabanyonyi and Kabale main stadium.
Delivering his speech, Dr Besigye said that it was the mercy of the lord God that they survived the bush war not even the strength of those calling themselves Sabarwani because they had been surounded and
the then commander of the government forces Oyite Ojok was throwing papers in their hide outs stating that they should utilize the last chance and surrender.
