Patience is the one following in my footsteps - Museveni

President Yoweri Museveni has heaped praises onto his second-born daughter, Pastor Patience Rwabwogo, describing her as a “family blessing.”

Museveni commended the 46-year-old for bringing religion to his household, while at the same time being a good entrepreneur.

She is the one who is walking in my trail,” Museveni said.

This priest that God bought to our family has never served in the government…but she and her husband have somehow managed to do great things on their own.”

Right from when they sent her for university education in Minnesota, USA, Museveni said Patience had a knack for entrepreneurship, starting a grain milling business before she ventured into cattle farming.

President Museveni was speaking at the closing of the “Light up Ankole Region for Jesus” crusade at Mbarara’s Booma grounds, which was hosted by Patience.

Like himself, Museveni said his daughter had rejected the Christian message of not working for worldly wealth, which even drove him away from the Scripture Union back in the 1960s.

I thank God that she has been able to preach the word of God and also grew her own wealth,” Museveni said.

It is not right to be a Christian leader and stay poor. What are you teaching other people? The Bible says your bodies are temples of God. But if your body is poor and hungry and sick what kind of temple is that?”

The Light up Ankole Region for Jesus crusade was held under the theme: “Redigging the wells of revival.”
