Museveni – We Shall Consider Lifting The Ban On Worship Places In Army Barracks

President Museveni has revealed that they are going to consider opening worship places in army barracks. Apparently, religion appeared as a source of Division according to Museveni.

This is because there are many religions in the country. The last thing they need is to have the army divided over religious denominations.

However, it looks like the president is having a change of heart to reopen worship places in army barracks.

The president said this while officiating the 23rd National Prayer Breakfast. They held it at statehouse Entebbe.

The prayer breakfast was celebrated under the theme: Responsibility before God and Man. Numerous legislators prayed for Uganda, East Africa and the world for peace, the health sector and the country’s economy.

The president said he had had a change of heart after witnessing the unity among religious denominations.

He revealed that the fightings among religious denominations forced him to ban prayers in the barracks. He notes though that lately there is unity among different denominations which is now a good thing.

This was the headliner of the day because they made the request way back but the president did nothing about it.

Meanwhile, Rt. Rev Johnson Twinomujuni, the Bishop of West Ankole diocese encouraged MPs to keep parliament decorum.

He delivered the keynote address this time around. It is at this point that Oulanyah said that the 11th Parliament will not be like the old parliaments in exercising their roles.
