Riots Break Out in Kampala as Peacebuilders Meet in Uganda

In an ironic twist of fate, riots in Kampala affected a Caritas- and government-sponsored peacebuilding conference in Kampala. The riots broke out yesterday in reaction to a planned Saturday visit of a local king to an area near the capital that says it has seceded from his kingdom, according to the BBC. Caritas Internationalis’ head of communications Patrick Nicholson shares an update from the conference, which fortunately was able to continue. Our prayers go out for a rapid return to peace and reconciliation.
