compound in Kanungu yesterday for a service in memory of the 1,000 known victims of the biggest mass murder in modern
Amid the banana plantations and sugar cane fields where followers of the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten
Commandments of God lived, worked and perished in the church hall inferno that claimed 530 lives, Specioza Kazibwe, the
Ugandan Vice-President, laid a wreath on the mass grave containing the victims' charred remains.
Announcing that the official total has reached 1,000, Mrs Kazibwe added: "I believe there will be more than that." She
described the cult leaders as "diabolic, malevolent criminals masquerading as holy and religious people who outwitted
