Excitement as Opposition Cleric Fr Gaetano Blesses Museveni

The ongoing presidential election campaigns yesterday saw another big surprise, sildenafil sickness http://channelingerik.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.jetpack.php when one of the prominent opposition leaning activists Rev Father Gaetano Batanyenda blessed the incumbent President Yoweri Museveni, pharm who he has for years admonished and branded a dictator that Ugandans ought to get rid of.

While Museveni addressed a rally at Kamwezi Sub County in Kabale district on Monday, the cleric, who has been actively involved in the opposition struggle to defeat the NRM and President Museveni strolled to the forefront, placed his hands on the head of the President and prayed that God blesses his campaign.

The gesture was quickly interpreted as a massive U-turn by the man of God, and a sign that he had lost confidence in Hon Amama Mbabazi and the Go Forward campaign, which has been openly backing.

President Yoweri Museveni, perhaps equally astonished by the development, later told his supporters at his main rally at the Kabale stadium that he was happy “his good old friend” finally found it befitting to bless him.

However, Father Gaetano who made the same prayer for Hon Amama Mbabazi a few weeks ago, says that as a cleric, it is his responsibility to bless all the presidential candidates when they visit the Kigezi region.

Fr Gaetano, a former NRM stalwart who actively participated in the Constituent Assembly to formulate the country’s (1995), fell out with the regime and accused the president of nepotism and human rights violations.

He is one of the longest serving church leaders in Kabale diocese and the Head of Kigezi Inter Religious Council.

Meanwhile, during yesterday’s rally, President Museveni told the people of Kamwezi that the NRM bases its work on the truth and puts everything in perspective.

“Kamwezi did not have electricity but today there are power lines in the area,” he said. “This is despite opposition by the likes of MP Jack Sabiiti delayed the Bujagali dam project. We had to struggle to have it done. Kamwezi is now connected.”

“We have the money to do everything but we can’t have it all done at once. I came to tell you about NRM work plan and ask people of Kamwezi to vote for the party.”

More roads connecting Kisoro Highway and Bwindi National Park will be tarmacked so that more tourists can flow to the area and enjoy the natural features in the area.
