President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has called upon religious leaders to spearhead a vigorous campaign to revive accepted moral standards in society to preserve the country from the current global high levels of decadence. 

He is optimistic that if religious leaders jointly rekindle their efforts in fostering stronger and responsible family institutions, it will save the country from the bigger threats and repercussions of moral degeneration.  

In his speech delivered by State Minister of Trade, Industry, and Cooperatives David Bahati, during the consecration of Reverend Joseph Tumwebaze as the South Buganda regional Overseer of Pentecostal Churches in Masaka, Museveni observed that the Church is equally under serious threat by the changing global dynamics that are causing a decline in moral standards.  

He called upon the leaders of the Pentecostal Churches to rise to the task of mobilizing their followers to revive and stick to the original values of their faith, which among others include self-reliance, as a way of safeguarding society from unacceptable habits.

  //Cue in; “I’m privileged……

Cue out; ….. moral decadence.”//  Besides performing their religious responsibilities of evangelization, Museveni also called upon the leadership of Pentecostal Churches to work out programs that can enhance the livelihoods of their followers.

He challenged the leaders to stop the mentality of relying on followers for the sustainability of the church, arguing it can no longer support the growth of the institutions, hence the need to initiate income-generating projects at institutional levels.

  //Cue in: “gone are the days…..

Cue out; … church activities.”// 

After his inauguration for a term of five years, Pastor Joseph Tumwebaze noted has developed a five-year strategic development plan he intends to share with colleagues to steer both spiritual and economic transformation of the region he was trusted with as the overseer.  

As part of the strategic plan, Tumwebaze launched a regional savings and cooperative society of all Born-again Pentecostal Churches in the area, which he says is intended to generate affordable capital for both the Church and its followers. 

Moses Odongo, the national leader of the National Fellowship of Born-Again Pentecostal Churches of Uganda-NFBPC, noted they are committed to closely working with the government in transforming the lives of their congregation.
