Kampala - The Bishop of Lugazi, Rt. Rev Mathius Ssekamanya, yesterday warned Ugandans against devil worship which has penetrated Ugandan community. He said the Kanungu inferno of March 17, in which over 500 followers of Joseph Kibwetere perished, was satanic.

Ssekamanya refuted media reports that he talked to his former classmate and friend, Fr. Dominic Kataribaabo, two days to the Kanungu inferno.

On Tuesday, he was quoted by the media as having told a congregation at a mass at Kangulumira on Sunday that Emmanuel Cardinal Wamala asked him to woo Kataribaabo back to Catholicism.

Ssekamanya was quoted as saying he met Kataribaabo two days to the inferno. Ssekamanya said when he tried to convince Kataribaabo to denounce Kibwetere's cult, he said he could not go back to a Church which could not directly communicate with God.
