Christians for Israel Uganda organised a 7 kilometers Prayer March in July on the occasion of 70 years Israel. The Prayer March started at Makerere University and went through the streets of Kampala city and ended at Kololo Airstrip. Over 12,000 Christians participated including government ministers, city mayors, the Uganda Police Force Band, bishops, pastors and others from Ethiopia, America and Israel. The whole march was broadcasted live on Salt Television and Kingdom TV by which millions of Ugandans and those abroad watched it live.

In his speech minister of health, dr. Christine Ondoa, said Uganda has gone back to her biblical roots: ‘Israel and this historical Prayer March, the first ever of its kind, will be a great bridge between the two states.’ Drake Kanaboo, director of C4I Uganda: ‘The church must wake up and stand with her big brother Israel.’ Drake and other seven well known spiritual leaders of Uganda including Pastor Laban Jumba and Pastor Bugingo of the House of Prayer Church, one by one lead the people into outpouring prayer for Israel.

After the prayer event Christians for Israel Uganda hosted a 350 people at a dinner at the Serena hotel Kampala including the Ugandan First Lady Mrs. Janet Museveni, Country diplomats, military generals, Israel’s Ambassador Mr. Noah, members of the Jewish community, bishops, and Ministers. Two weeks after the Prayer Walk a delegation of Uganda parliament visited Israel and had a meeting in the Knesset. Draka Kanaboo: ‘To God be the glory.’
