THIS WEEK: Fort Portal Bishop challenges Museveni to retire
Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Bishop Reuben Kisembo of the Rwenzori diocese whose has asked President Yoweri Museveni to retire and grant the country the honor of a peaceful transition of power. The cleric who was speaking on Feb.10 at the commissioning ceremony of a chapel at Kyebambe girls secondary school in Fort Portal where the president was chief guest said even if parliament passed constitutional amendments removing presidential age limits, it was good for the country that he hands over in a peaceful way.
However this seems to have offended the president who in response asked religious leaders to have a disciplined way of interacting and that he can’t allow being guided on issues that he knows better.
“I keep hearing religious people, they provoke us and me in particular”, he said before asking the bishop to refer to read Ecclesiastes 3:1-3 which reads,” There is time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens….”
Museveni would later lead a ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of a Shs6 billion stadium at Buhinga on the outskirts of Fort Portal Town. The stadium is planned to have a tennis court, hotel facility and other hospitality facilities.
