President Museveni has called on religious leaders in the country to live exemplary lives in society.
“As Christians, we cannot live by preaching the gospel only. Emulate Jesus who led a three dimensional mission of healing the sick, fed the needy and worked in his father’s carpentry workshop to teach the communities to improve on their social and economic activities through hard work’’ he said.
The President made the remarks during the commissioning ceremony of St. Andrew Cathedral Namukozi, Mityana Diocese in Mityana district on Saturday.
Mr. Museveni, who kicked started the construction of the cathedral with support of Shs.80 million 3 years ago, congratulated Bishop Steven Samuel Kaziimba, the church administration and the entire community in Mityana Diocese for putting up a magnificent cathedral structure in a short time of three years.
President Museveni, who contributed Shs. 400 million out of the Shs.2 billion towards the completion of the Cathedral, used the occasion to warn against political indiscipline in society.
He noted that the poor state of roads in Mityana Town largely stems from the fact that the people there lack representation from their leaders who do not advance the needs of the area.
