Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has urged Christians to celebrate the Easter Holiday ‘responsibly’ saying the big day gives the nation time to reflect on on Christ’s mysteries.
Museveni’s message is contained in an Easter message delivered on Saturday evening.
“For Christians this is a season to reflect on the mysteries of Christ’s life. His ultimate sacrifice through death and later resurrection gives us the lasting hope of salvation,” Museveni said in the message posted on his social media pages.
He added, “A blessed Easter to you countrymen and women. I urge you to celebrate responsibly. God bless you.”
On Sunday, Christians all over the world celebrate the resurrection of the saviour Jesus Christ.
He also used the message to point out that Uganda is undergoing her own resurrection under the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party.
“In Uganda’s case, we are undergoing our own ‘resurrection’ spearheaded by the NRM. For example, our economy is projected to grow by 6.3% this year, far above the Sub Saharan and even global averages. Our security is stable while our democracy improves by the day,” he said.
