Embrace the 4 NRM Principles Patriotism, Democracy, Pan African, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to Pastors
Pr Robert Kayanja of Miracle Centre Cathedral, who led the delegation of Born Again Pentecostal Church leaders, presented a joint statement agreeing with wealth creation.
President Museveni asked pastors who visited him on Wednesday to congratulate him upon his re-election and discuss issues of wealth and health.
Pastor Kayanja addressed President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni that unemployment of our youth is a good problem. It reveals the success of government efforts of liberalising education, as such, we have a more literate society now than 35 years ago,” he said.
President Museveni urged the clergy and other leaders to embrace the four NRM principles, including patriotism, pan-Africanism, social economic transformation and democracy.
He appealed to them to focus on social and economic transformation of communities to improve household incomes and alleviate poverty.
