Regional and International Alliances

Following the attack on the Church and other places of worship in Kenya, triggered by Hon. Kigano Muturi’s motion in the National Assembly; compelling the Attorney General of Kenya to present a Bill regulating the formation and registration of churches and other religious institutions in Kenya; Crownel Co.’s resolved to avert the would be far-reaching consequences of this motion. Our strategic actions in this respect included liaison with our sources in Kenya to obtain further and better particulars on the circumstances leading to the standoff between the State, the Media and the Church in Kenya. Initial visits were made to Kenya in May 2019 to make contact with some key stakeholders affected by this motion. Additionally, opinions were generated providing a clear analysis of these circumstances, the legal remedies available and recommendations on how to avert the attack on the Church in Kenya; drawing from our experience in Uganda and that of other jurisdictions such as South Africa—among others. 

In a bid to advance and network with like-minded entities that advocate for common causes, Crownel has established partnerships with Freedom of Religion South Africa, Christian Concern UK and Alliance Defending Freedom International. Through such partnerships, international webinars have been held centred around the status of religious freedoms in Uganda  in the wake of Covid-19; as well as engagement with the Ugandan State through diplomatic and public channels regarding concerns about the continuing ban on religious gatherings in Uganda in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Crownel Co. has also remarkably contributed to offering thought leadership on several topical issues affecting Ugandans in the wake of Covid-19, through mainstream media publications, hosting and forming part of the panels of varied public dialogues, webinars and town hall meetings comprising several local and global actors like politicians, human rights activists, scientists, educationists, spiritual leaders, legal professionals, media personalities amongst others.
