Desist From Arrogance – Museveni Tells Religions

President Yoweri Museveni has appealed to different religious groups to follow Christian ways of winning people by example both in words and actions rather than using force.

“Influence people by good example. Don’t use force and don’t use arrogance. Let us concentrate on commonalities and our country will be a great country, here pills ” he said.

The President was today speaking at the 16th annual National Prayer Breakfast that took place at Hotel African in Kampala on the eve of Uganda’s 52nd independence anniversary. The prayers ran under the theme “Faithful Stewardship in Governance”.

Mr. Museveni, who was accompanied by his wife, Mrs. Janet Museveni, congratulated religious groups in the country for attempting to follow the path of God by uniting to form the Inter-Religious Council noting that religion had become a source of troubles in Uganda saying that even if there was no actual war, there were religious frictions especially in the 1990s.

He said that much of the trouble in the Middle East, the Sudan and other parts of the world is caused by failure to appreciate the fact that winning people is by example not through arrogance and ignorance saying these should stop.

Mr. Museveni used the same occasion to educate and sensitize the people on curtailing the spread of Ebola and Marburg diseases and advised that interpersonal communication should be stopped.

“Stop interpersonal communication so that we can control this problem,” he counseled.

The President also talked about the challenges attendant to eating monkeys by some tribes especially those living near forests. He stressed the need for those communities to be educated on the dangers pertaining to the habit saying that monkeys are our cousins and what affects them also affects us as human beings.


In a concluding prayer for the nation, the wife of the President who is also Minister for Karamoja Affairs, Mrs. Janet Museveni, asked God to bless and help Uganda to make good decisions that will take the country to great heights. She said that Uganda is a nation that seeks the will of God so that “we may never forget the good promises and guidance in the days ahead.”

In his remarks, the Deputy Speaker of Parliamentary, Rt. Hon. Jacob Oulanyah commended the President for his personal sacrifices and for making Uganda peaceful and governable.

The Chairman of the Uganda Parliamentary Fellowship Hon. David Bahati saluted President Museveni and the First lady for their steadfast commitment to God adding that everybody benefits from the Creator irrespective of our different political and religious shades.

Earlier, the Chairman of the African House of Prayer, Mr. Barr Emeka Nvankpa, in a key note address thanked God for Uganda and prayed to Him to help the African Continent that is besieged by diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Ebola, among others, so that the generations to come may live to know God their creator.
