President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni says hoping for miraculous wealth is too dangerous.
Mr. Museveni urged religious leaders to use their different Churches to preach against household poverty to the Parishioners.
“I urge the clergy to join government in preaching the gospel against household poverty. Teach your congregations to work hard to eradicate poverty. Hoping for miraculous wealth instead of hard work is dangerous,” the President tweeted on Sunday.
He also urged Christians to contribute generously towards Church development.
The President cited Church project like a building in memory of Alexander Mackay who introduced Christianity to Uganda.
“I urge Christians to contribute generously to the church project which will be built in memory of Alexander Mackay, who was critical in introducing Christianity to Uganda. I will also make my contribution. Religious sites should be treated the same way as historical installations.”
Still on Sunday, Museveni called on traders to elect only committed leaders capable of implementing national development goals.
He made the remark on Sunday while addressing residents of Kitunzi Zone Market in Lungujja, Nateete in Rubaga division, Kampala.
“I also stopped at Kitunzi Zone Market area in Lungujja, Nateete and addressed the residents. My call to them is to vote leaders who are committed to implementing national development goals. I will give Shs20m to Kitunzi Market Women’s Group Sacco to support their activities,” Museveni said.
