Rev. George Ninye- the Parish Priest of Masajja
at Masajja was started in 1937. It started at the current site of Delico Bakery. Later on they got another place where currently stands St. Apollo Kivebulaaya Church Namasuba. The Chjristians were divided as some went to Namasuba and the others went to Mengo Government to request for a piece of land to build a Church at Masajja. The Buganda Goverment authorities gave them land at Masajja Kyabaggu and they started worshipping under a tree. They later on started constructing a church. This was between 1950 and 1958.
