MUSEVENI

President Yoweri Museveni has declared Saturday, 29th August 2020, a day of National Prayers and a Public Holiday.

According to Museveni, a certain Ugandan went and told him that God had told him in a vision that he should organise National Prayers, scientifically organised, for God to deliver us from COVID 19.

“Therefore, by the powers given to the President of Uganda by Section 2(2) of the Public Holidays Act, I declare the 29th of August 2020, a day of National Prayers and a Public Holiday. Stay in your houses or Compounds and pray,” he wrote.

He appealed to all Ugandans to join this massive act of supplication. “Mushabe, muryaheebwa, musherure, muryazoora”, he said, adding that I remember it from our priests at Kyamate in the 1950s.

“This is in the Book of Matthew chapter 7 verse 7. In English it says: Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
