According to Bishop Elijah Sebuchu, a senior pastor at Kampala International Christian Centre (KICC) in Kyanja, Kampala, there is no shortcut to getting rich in life except through work hard.

UNEMPLOYMENT
 
Towards the end of 2019, youths were urged to spend less time in church, work hard and stop seeking miracles from fake pastors if they are to fight poverty.
 
According to Bishop Elijah Sebuchu, a senior pastor at Kampala International Christian Centre (KICC) in Kyanja, Kampala, there is no shortcut to getting rich in life except through work hard.
 
"God helps those who help themselves. Spending the whole day in church and not working will not yield much. For one to survive in this world, they have to work," he said.
 
"I advise the youth to start up small businesses, trust God and desist from practices such as corruption and theft, which have consequences that can ruin their lives," he added.
 
According to the 2016/17 Uganda Bureau of Statics, the national unemployment rate stands at 9% for the working population. Out of the employed working-age population, 13% are female, while  6% are male. The unemployment rate for the youths aged between 18-30 years stands at 13.3%.
 
Sebuchu also appealed to the President to order the shooting of whoever is found guilty of corruption regardless of their political party because that is the only way the country can fight the vice.
 
He said this during a press briefing held at KICC in Kyanja, Kampala last year.
 
Sebuchu called upon religious leaders to stop exposing their dirty linen in the public if they are to be a good example to their followers.
 
David Ekene, from Team Creator Tomorrow and a musician from Nigeria, urged Christians to share with the needy and trust God in whatever they do.
