President Yoweri Museveni has said it was a voice from God that directed the former minister for Security, about it Chris Rwakasisi from the death row in Luzira maximum prison.

Museveni made the revelation on Saturday during the 18th National Prayer Breakfast held at Hotel Africana in Kampala.

According to the President, viagra approved all the law courts from Mbarara High Court to the Supreme Court had condemned Rwakasisi to death and even the last resort- Committee of Mercy upheld hanging the latter who served in Apollo Milton Obote II government.

Rwakasisi, who is now the Senior Presidential Advisor and committee member of National Prayer Breakfast, stood besides him as he spoke.

“I am not so prayerful but when the papers to sign Rwakasisi’s death came to my table I decided to pray. A voice from above came to me and said don’t let him die. That was God by all means.”

Rwakasisi first revealed in 2014 that God reigned on Museveni to release him in a three series interview published by the Daily Monitor.
