It would have been a mistake for First Lady Janet to ignore God’s call to contest the Ruhama seat, her husband said on Sunday.

President Yoweri Museveni also told the Easter service at St. James Church, Nshwerenkye, in his home in Rwakitura, that outgoing MP Augustine Ruzindana betrayed the Movement. Janet was at the service.

Museveni said initially he opposed his wife’s decision to challenge Ruzindana, a former Inspector General of Government. Museveni said when he launched the armed struggle against Idi Amin and Milton Obote in the 1970s and 1980s, government soldiers raided his farm but failed to steal his cattle. “Amin and Obote’s soldiers failed to eat my cows and then shelled my mother Esteri’s house using an RPG. The boy who hit my mother’s house died in Ntungamo.

He was a Munyoro called Kisembo. For eight years, how did they fail to eat Kaguta’s cows? You do your job and God does his job,” he said.

“When God calls upon you to do his job, ignore God at your own peril. But when you surrender yourself to God, he takes care of you,” he said, adding: “Ruzindana akaturyamu orukwe (Ruzindana betrayed us).

He said Janet prays more than him and when God manifested himself to her, he at first opposed the idea untill it was explained to him. “I cannot stand in God’s way. She is now going to deliver the message we (NRM) preach.”

Janet said, “God has big plans for Uganda. God wanted me to serve my people in Ruhama. I could not refuse. The people of Ruhama spoke with their votes. Trusting God, in this new term, we shall eradicate household poverty. It is hard for people to pray to God when there is poverty.”
