He added that as Christians should know that they are one in Christ therefore Wednesday being a protestant and supporting the catholic projects shows that he is a cooperative and developmental leader who supports both religions adding that even the Kabale diocesan bishop is aware and gave them a go ahead to conduct amass at his home.
