Hundreds of people from West Nile on Friday gathered at the Boma grounds Koboko to pray for the state Minister for Investment Evelyn Anite as she sought divine protection against the mafia who she alleges want her dead
On Monday, the Koboko Municipality MP, told journalists in Kampala that Mafia’s were after her life..
For that reason, Koboko District leaders on Friday decided to hold a joint prayer session for the minister pleading for God’s divine protection.
During the prayers, the Mayor for Koboko Municipality, Mr Wilson Sanya, said: “We are gathered here to demonstrate not on streets with cards but to God peacefully with Bibles and the Quran. We chose this option of seeking for prayers to fight the evil. The dear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”
Minister Anite said: “We cannot do without the Lord in our lives and heart. As a young girl, my parents made sure I go to Sunday school, Scripture Union and received the Lord. Many people think that politicians do not go to church. But you must testify to God to defeat the devil.”
She added: As a kakwa, I cannot sit down and see the corrupt robbing our country. I will fight to my last breathe. I will not lose the UTL fight.”
