UCU bans non Anglicans from university premises


Uganda Christian University (UCU) Vice Chancellor, Rev. Canon. Dr. John Ssenyonyi has banned non Anglicans from worshiping anywhere around the university premises.

“While we reorganize the worship of other people,it is not welcome to this campus,” he stressed out.

UCU an institution founded and run on the Anglican doctrine, the vice-chancellor therefore noted that all non Anglicans are welcomed to the university but when it comes to worship, they have to do so from churches or mosques outside the university.

“Uganda Christian University is established on Anglican Foundation and there is need to respect this setting. All worship which is not Anglican and that accepted by the University’s Chaplaincy should be conducted outside UCU campus. Those who have been doing so must stop immediately,” Dr. Ssenyonyi added.

Dr. Ssenyonyi made these remarks during Tuesday’s community worship hour where the entire university community meets for prayers and worship among other engagements done.

“We call upon non Anglican worshipers to respect us as we do respect their faith,’’ Ssenyonyi added.

It is during this same occasion that Dr Ssenyonyi introduced Monica Ntege as the new UCU Librarian replacing Dr. Alex Mukungu.
