President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni with First Lady Janet and other family members, attended Christmas prayers at St Luke Nshwerenkye Church of Uganda in Rushere township, Kiruhura District.
Museveni congratulated all Ugandans on making it to Christmas.
“I also ask that we love our neighbours as we love ourselves and as God loves us.”
He added: “Love your neighbour with all your heart and soul as you love God. It is wrong to love God whom you have never seen and hate your neighbour whom you live with every day.”
Museveni quoted the book of Genesis, where God directs that man dominates nature.
“I therefore urge Ugandans to manage the environment as it is their responsibility as per the scriptures.”
“I wish you all a responsible, merry Christmas and happy new year.”
