President calls on Pentecostal Fellowship members not to be Parasites

Thursday, December 5, 2019

President Yoweri Museveni has called on members of the National Fellowship of the Pentecostal Churches of Uganda and wananchi at large not to be parasites. 

He made the call today at Kyenjojo Secondary School in Kyenjojo Town in Tooro Sub-Region when he joined their congregation in prayers and used the occasion to address them. 

“Yesterday we walked in Kampala marking the fight against corruption. The corrupt people have got 3 characters. They are parasites. They do not fear God and they are lazy. They are stupid because they think that when nobody sees them, God does not see them. The stupid ones think that they are clever. The Bible says that you reap what you sow. They have no useful role,” he said.

The main preacher at the fellowship was Pastor Imelda Namutebi of the Kampala-based Liberty Worship Centre. The Kyenjojo Fellowship that started on 24th November 2019 is slated to end on 8th December 2019 and over 2,000 believers are attending.

President Museveni noted that most of the criminals have been punished by God and that the Bible does not like or support lazy people. He reminded them that the Bible clearly states that whoever does not work should not eat.

“If God made you healthy with good life why don’t you use your talents to develop yourselves?” he said. 

“The testimony that I am giving you is part of my experiences and observations over the last 60 years as a mature person. I have not seen any thief who has got lasting wealth,” he added. 

President Museveni told the fellowship that the NRM Government wants whoever has land to cultivate and grow food and eradicate poverty from their homes. He called on them to carry out calculations before embarking on any venture so that they may generate income for their families. He also cautioned them against land fragmentation, noting that when land is fragmented people do not reap any plausible benefits from it.

He commended Pastor Imelda Namutebi for preaching the word of God.

Kyenjojo Woman MP, Esperanza Baguma welcomed the President to Kyenjojo District while Pastor Imelda Namutebi main preacher, Pastor Imelda Namutebi saluted President Museveni for his Government’s policy of freedom of worship. She commended him for the dividend of peace in Uganda and expressed her gratitude that he has been able to attend the crusade.
