President Museveni and First Lady Mama Janet Kataaha Museveni Saturday joined different religious leaders in intercession for the nation over the coronavirus pandemic.
The idea of these national prayers came from religious leaders.
“I have heard people praising me for it. My only contribution is that I accepted it because from my experience, prayer has always worked even in the past, according to scripture.”
“I believe in God because of my experience, I believe that there is God and I have given that testimony even in the books I have written. I have seen in my life that there are things not done by me, but another power- God.”
“I am glad we are praying, but even as we pray, we must also continue doing as much to battle coronavirus. God created us in his own image and gave us the power to establish dominion over nature. Eventually, we shall defeat COVID-19,” Museveni vowed.
The president said he never believes in pessimism.
“I always look at finding solutions, yes we shall have problems in the economy, tourism, night clubs, bars will suffer but other aspects of the economy will thrive.”
He said COVID-19 has brought with it challenges, but most importantly it has given Uganda a rude awakening.
“For instance, we have been spending $7b importing things from China. The government is going to invest in those who can manufacture things here.”
