Kampala – 6, February 2021: President Museveni has told some religious leaders that it’s a sin to be poor. Mr Museveni, who has got his sixth term after January 14, disputed election said while meeting the men of God at State House Entebbe last week.

He asked pastors to join the government in fighting poverty by sensitizing their followers in their churches. The pastors had visited him to congratulate him for winning reelection.

“Go back and analyse your villages/communities to find out how many homes are involved in the money economy. This is the biggest war you can help us as a Church. I regard it as a sin to live with poor people,” Mr Museveni asked, as quoted by Daily Monitor.

Mr Museveni also appealed to the pastors and other church leaders to join government efforts in promoting wealth and health of citizens, reports Daily Monitor.

Speaking from his village home in Rwakitura on Saturday 16 January, few hours after the electoral commission (EC) chairman Justice Simon Byabakama Mugenyi had declared him as president-elect, Mr Museveni said ‘this term’ would be to fight corruption, promote education, boost security, among others.

In power since 1986, Gen. Museveni has asked opposition and Ugandans to work. “Elections are over, don’t waste time.”

It’s not over yet. His main challenger, Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine, has dragged him (Museveni), Attorney General and Electoral Commission to Supreme Court over ‘fraudulent presidential elections’.

During campaigns and days to polling day, the opposition leader and his supporters were harassed by security, some detained until now. Some of his top aides are before army court for trial.

Bobi Wine himself was arrested more than five times from when he started his campaigns. The most prominent one was his immediate house arrest after he and his wife Barbie Itungo Kyagulanyi had voted on 14 January 2021 at Magere Freedom Square polling station in Wakiso district.
