President Yoweri Museveni has acknowledged that corruption is on the rise in Uganda and promised to address it in his upcoming speech on June 6th.

He said this while addressing a congregation of pilgrims at the Catholic Shrine Namugongo after the Uganda Martyrs day Mass celebration.

This was the second time Museveni hinted on the issue of corruption in two days after making similar statements at the second graduation ceremony of the National Defense College (NDC) Uganda on Saturday where he declared war on corrupt government officials.

He also thanked the Nebbi Diocese for their beautiful animation and pledged government support for the ongoing construction at Namugongo Parish.

Museveni emphasized the importance of religious leaders influencing their followers through action, not just words and he urged them to lead by example in the fight against poverty among Christians.

He cited Latin America as an example of a region where people are religious but still live in poverty.

The President also warned those who focus on homosexuality, saying they don’t understand that Uganda is a land of martyrs.

Quoting the parable of talents, Museveni encouraged religious leaders to use their God-given talents to influence others.

Museveni also implored religious leaders to work with the government in spreading the gospel of fighting poverty from homes.
