I Wanted To Be A Bishop – Museveni

Members of Parliament have rejected a proposal by the government to borrow $ 200 million from the Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank to stabilize the exchange rate.

The decision to reject the proposal was reached at a sitting of Parliament chaired by the Speaker, page http://context-beermann.de/media/widgetkit/widgets/accordion/accordion.php Rt.Hon. Rebecca Kadaga on Thursday.

The Minister of State for Finance for Privatization, and Hon Aston Kajara had earlier stated that there was need for borrowing, prostate because the shilling had depreciated against the dollar.

He also added that this has been caused by the low exports and weakening of foreign direct investments.

“We need a short term intervention to stem these factors which are causing problems in the economy,” he said.

Hon. Theodore Ssekikubo (Lwemiyaga County) said that the country is borrowing for consumption and the multinationals will take away the same foreign exchange that was being borrowed.

“The big multinationals will take away the foreign exchange back to their countries and this makes no difference,” Hon. Ssekikubo said.

Serere district MP, Hon. Alice Alaso wondered whether it was an admission that the Bank of Uganda had failed to stabilize the foreign exchange by resorting to borrowing from foreign sources.

“Has Bank of Uganda failed? For as long as we run a boda boda economy, we shall not realize stability in the foreign exchange sector,” Alaso said.

Hon. Felix Okot Ogong (Dokolo County) said that the ruling party of NRM was not aware that there was need to borrow money to stabilize the foreign exchange rate. He advised that government should find alternatives to the problem.

“I beg to move that the Minister withdraws the Motion because there are other ways of controlling the inflows and outflows of foreign exchange rather than borrowing,” Hon. Okot Ogong stressed.

President Yoweri Museveni has revealed that if it wasn’t for the highhanded and dictatorial past regimes he would not have been a politician today, diagnosis http://catrinmacdonnell.co.uk/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.json-api-endpoints.php but a religious leader.

Museveni said on Wednesday that his childhood dream was becoming a Bishop, cheap which however, order was shattered by the governments that followed Uganda’s independence.

The president blamed the governments of Milton Obote and Idi Amin which he termed as satanic, for dividing the people Uganda along religious lines for their own political gain.

“I looked around here in western Uganda and the Catholics were after the blood of the Anglicans, all because of some political parties and I realized that being a cleric wasn’t such a good idea,” he said.

“I wanted to be a Bishop but when I saw all these differences and the animosity, I decided to join the liberation struggle.”

“Indeed when we started our struggle, we put the teachings of Jesus on the forefront. We taught ourselves his commandment of Love your Neighbor as You Love Yourself. We knew that one could not pretend to love God, when they cannot love their immediate neighbor.”

The president made the remarks at the requiem mass for the first resident Bishop of Kabale diocese, Bishop Barnabas Halem’Imaana, held at Rushoroza cathedral in Kabale Municipality.

Museveni praised the deceased, who together with Cardinal Emmanuel Nsubuga introduced him to a lot of people that gave support to the liberation struggle

At the mass, Bishop Calistus Rubaramira of Kabale diocese described the late bishop Halem’Imaana as one who loved his work of serving the God.
