President Yoweri Museveni has called on Ugandans at large to fully utilize their God-given talents to cause development in their homesteads and in the whole country as well. 

The President made the call while speaking at Nshwerenkye Church of Uganda in Kenshunga Sub-County, Kiruhuura District during a service whose main celebrant was Rev. Meshach Kihondwa. The President, who was accompanied by the First Lady, Mrs. Janet Museveni and other family members, used the occasion to congratulate Ugandans upon concluding 2019. 

“I congratulate you for concluding the year and for celebrating Christmas. Thank you for loving and respecting God. It is good for all of us. Religion played a big role in waking up the people. I call on you to fully utilize your talents,” he said.

The president said that in 1986 the people of Uganda were asleep and did not know that there was wealth in cattle keeping. He noted that having sensitized the people of Kiruhuura District in particular and Uganda as a whole to produce milk and grow bananas, sugarcanes and several other products in order to create wealth for their families and the country at large, wealth has consequently spread.

He commended Ugandans for waking up to fully participate in sustained efforts to chase away poverty from their households adding that Uganda today enjoys abundant output of agro products further encouraging them to cut the US$ 100 million worth of infant milk still imported annually since the country is experiencing excess milk production.

Mr. Museveni also urged Ugandans to always carry out meticulous calculations on the projects that they choose to undertake as a way of curbing the high rate at which businesses collapse at their infancy. He further emphasized that cattle farmers ought to grow sufficient pasture in order to ensure better and profitable dairy undertakings. He thanked the people of Kiruhuura District for taking the education of their children very seriously and also for stopping alcoholism.

Rev. Meshach Kihondwa, the main celebrant of the service, thanked the president for his great leadership and cautioned against unbiblical doctrines such as homosexuality

“Why should satanic activities of men marrying fellow men be referred to as human rights? Gay relationships, he added, are contrary to African culture.”
