Ofwono Opondo: The God of Abraham will Keep Museveni in Power
Uganda government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo has said the God of Abraham and Jacob is with Museveni and will not let him go just like the opposition wishes.
Opondo spoke during NBS TV’s Thursday night show,The Frontline.
Ofwono Opondo, who also speaks for the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party, said the divine presence of the God of Abraham and Jacob was with Museveni and NRM.
Museveni has been Uganda’s president since he took power in 1986.
If an amendment to remove the constitutional age limit is deleted, Museveni could rule Uganda for life, especially with elections largely disputed by the opposition.
OFWONO OPONDO RESPONDS TO MATEMBE CLAIMS THAT GOD WILL REMOVE MUSEVENI
“The God of Jacob and Abraham is with President Museveni and NRM,” said Opondo.
Matembe had said God would end Museveni’s three-decade rule.
“Museveni will go” Matembe said.
“God puts leaders and removes them. Pray hard that he gives you more ideas to remove him.”
Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) secretary general Nandala Mafabi had reacted to Matembe’s statement, with disapproval.
“Praying will not make Museveni go,” said Mafabi.
Mafabi and Matembe faced off on the show with the former claiming the latter was the worst Christian he had ever met.
