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.

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, http://clicknbuy.tk/wp-includes/default-constants.php who was accompanied by his wife, http://darkon.org/wp-content/plugins/events-manager/templates/templates/map-global.php 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.
