Dear Ugandans, I greet you all.

We salute the Uganda Matyrs. They died for freedom of conscience and against traditional tyranny.

Christianity and Islam played a role in the modernisation of Uganda.

Unfortunately, on account of misguided beliefs, some people misused the new religions to bring about sectarianism based on religion.

This is why NRM has been decampaigning sectarianism whether of religion or tribe and fought against discrimination of women and children.

In the Bible we are told that Jesus Christ preached the gospel but also worked as a carpenter with his foster father Joseph. He must have worked to contribute to household income.

Therefore, I urge you all to emulate him and religious leaders to guide Ugandans how to earn better incomes for their homes alongside preaching.

I wish you a blessed day.

Yoweri Kaguta Museveni

President of the Republic of Uganda

June 3rd, 2013
