The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS), Makerere University is organizing a book launch of its latest publication titled, “The Ugandan Churches and the Political Centre: Cooperation, Co-option and Confrontation”.  The publication largely explains how the Christian faith and the political centre have been intertwined from the outset in the Ugandan Christian story. Its chapters take examples from this story where the churches have cooperated with, been co-opted by and confronted the political centre. The examples come from different periods and regions and are based on pioneering research. The chapters include: “Festo Kivengere’s Preaching on Reconciliation into post-Amin Uganda” by Alfred Olwa, “The Growing Role of the Pentecostal Churches in the Political Arena” by Dr Paddy Musana, “Religious Rituals to Reintegrate Girl Child-soldiers in Northern Uganda” by Dr Christine Mbabazi Mpyangu and “The Relationship between the NRM Government and the Churches” by Mr. Ofwono Opondo. This is to invite you to the launch of the aforementioned book scheduled to take place on 22nd September, 2017 at 2:00pm at Makerere University. The Prime Minister of the Republic of Uganda, the Rt. Hon. Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, is expected to preside over the event.
