Museveni said the present-day religious leaders are not like their predecessors who got disoriented and emphasized religious differences rather than unity in diversity. He said that religion had set focus on non-Godly issues leading to religious wars, enemity and terrorism.
Museveni was speaking during the 20th National Prayer Breakfast at Hotel Africana in Kampala this morning, an annual event organized annually by the Parliament of Uganda to pray for the country. The breakfast meeting is held ahead of the Independence Day celebrations.
President Yoweri Museveni has cautioned against spending a lot of time praying and called upon Ugandans to work and take charge of mans fundamental mission of having dominion over all creatures on the planet. Museveni said that he doesnt like the helpless approach of praying and shouting as if God is deaf, while ignoring the fundamental role of dominion over earth.
