“Similarly, the accusations levelled against HE The President in the same articles, are not only outrageous and alarming, they have been deliberately twisted to serve the paper’s own malicious interests,” his tweet further reads.

Today Monday morning, Museveni tweeted: “Jesus Christ preached the gospel, healed the sick, fed the hungry and worked as a carpenter with His father. If religious leaders also talk about working to fight poverty alongside their preaching, it would help to fight poverty in Uganda.”

The President is under pressure by church leaders to drop ministers named in shoddy oil deals. They include Hilary Onek, Amama Mbabazi (Premier) and Sam Kutesa (Foreign Affairs).

The clergy has as well asked the President not to push the controversial Public Order Management Bill.

Museveni now joins the likes of Mike Mukula, Mbabazi and Rwanda President Paul Kagame who are active tweeps.

The move is perceived as an attempt to reach out to the youth who have flooded the social networking websites. Museveni used the “Another Rap” urban hip-hop hit to woo the youth during the February Presidential elections. Opposition Col. Kizza Besigye is yet to join the twitter league. His wife Winnie Byanyima is a passive tweep.
