Religious leaders under the Uganda Joint Christian Council (UJCC) led by the archbishop of Kampala Cyprian Lwanga have asked the government to postpone the 2021 general elections for three years.
Men of God say due to the increased Corona virus cases in the country and the world at large there is no way the country can go for this election.
Leaders have called upon parliament to amend the constitution and allow President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to stay in power during the three years till the time of elections.
According to Lwanga, candidates have failed to observe standard operating procedures (SOPs) during campaigns hence the increasing cases.
