Emulate Museveni of the 1970s, says cleric

KABALE.
The youth have been aised to emulate Mr Museveni’s devotion during his liberation struggles in the 1970s and 80s where he rejected handouts from the then leaders and opted to fight for democracy in the country.

Kitanga Parish Priest Geatano Batanyenda made the appeal last week while addressing hundreds of youth from Kisoro, Kabale, Kanungu and Rukungiri districts at Kirigme Guest house in Kabale town during the dialogue on the oil and gas benefits to Ugandans.

He said if Mr Museveni accepted handouts then and was compromised by the presidents during his youthful days, he would not be the leader of the country today.

“The youth of Uganda must reject bribes that regularly come in brown envelops from leaders compromising them so that they can sustain them in power.
