President Yoweri Museveni yesterday officiated the opening of the newly constructed Entebbe Miracle Centre Cathedral.
Speaking before the gathering, Museveni revealed that he was once a mulokole but later disagreed with them.
“I used to be a Mulokole myself, long ago but I disagreed with them in 1966 over a verse in the bible that says, look at the birds in the air, they never sow, nor harvest but they feed,” Museveni said, adding that, “The balokole misinterpreted it and refused to work. I opposed them and started preaching about work.”
The President however, said that these churches are clear indicators of peace and development.
He also gave the proverb in Luganda, “Silya omulabira ku mubiri.”

Museveni called on everyone to aim at working hard while still alive so as to develop the world.
“The Banyankole say, “omunsi turi abagyenyi” that translates as, human beings are visitors in this world. But my father died at the age of 97, is that what one would refer to as visiting the world? 97 years? We must work while still in this world.”
