PARLIAMENT- Uganda’s 20th National prayer breakfast scheduled for October 8, 2018, has been unveiled.
Addressing a press conference this morning at Parliament, State Minister of Finance, David Bahati said the prayer breakfast will take place at Hotel Africana.
President Yoweri Museveni, together with the First lady, Janet Museveni will be the chief guests while Derrick Samuels from the USA will be the guest speaker.
Bahati added that on the 6th and 7th of this month they will also hold the youth and women prayer conference respectively and all the national prayer breakfast and the theme will be “All hard work brings profit but mere talk leads to poverty” Proverbs 14:23.
He emphasized that prayer breakfast is an opportunity for Uganda as it fosters the relationship between leaders and bridges differences created by politics saying that this will also help Ugandans to ask God to protect them from ugly scenes.
“We should work together; remember Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga were reconciled by the strength of prayer breakfast. We can also have it here in Uganda,” Bahati noted.
Mitoom Woman MP, Jovah Kamateeka who is among the organisers of the event, urged the women to come in big numbers and thank God.
“It’s a chance for us women to interact and discuss with each other as we talk about various issues affecting us,” she said.
Kamateeka explained that women are always working and they need all the support from the men.
She urged the youth to wake up and do something for themselves instead of waiting for the government to rescue them. You can start small and grow with the little you have.
Kabweri MP, Francis Gonahasa said that hard work indeed brings blessings and as politicians, we should stop talking a lot but work together to develop Uganda.
