While speaking the Christian Life Church’s Annual trans-night Passover prayers held at Kololo Independence grounds, president Museveni emphasized that without supplementing the Gospel of God with the gospel of hard work, as Christians, it will be difficult to support our families, churches and the entire country in terms of income generation.

“Avoid living a reckless life hope you can see me, I’m now 71 years old but because I don’t take alcohol,  or smoke, am still very strong so, I appeal to you especially the youths, take Christian values not for spiritual purposes alone but also for hard working and improving your life styles,” Museveni said.

Meanwhile, proprietor of Christian Life Church-Bwaise and media icon, Pastor Jackson Ssenyonga recommended President Museveni for the gift of peace he has maintained since he took power.

“We have invested a lot in several development projects including schools, media among others, because of the conducive working environment introduced under your regime. I therefore request all fellow Christians to vote wisely come February so that we don’t regret after,” Ssenyonga said.

Museveni who looked a bit tired, spent less than an hour and left the venue.
