Poor People will Not Go To Heaven- Ugandan Minister declares

Ugandan Minister for Internal Affairs, General Kahinda Otafiire has set tongue wagging after urging people to work hard and eradicate poverrty instead of lamenting their plight.

Otafiire was on Sunday officiating at the opening of a boy’s dormitory of St. Klaus Comprehensive Trade School in Bufunjo village,Kifuka Town Council in Kyenjojo district, Uganda.

“Poor people will not go to heaven because they insult God through lamentations and accusations every day. Why do you disturb God by asking him for money all the time yet he gave you hands, eyes, brains, ears, land and rains amongst others? The tools he gave you are enough to make you prosper.’ Otafiire said.

The minister said there are some people who do not want to work but expect to get rich.

“If you do not use the tools God gave you, do not blame him when you remain poor. Strive to overcome poverty because being rich is glorious.” Otafiire reiterated further.

He called upon people to be united and have a collective effort in fostering development instead of dividing themselves based on religions or tribes.

Otafiire also advised parents to invest in education which he said is a foundation for development both at the household and national level.

” If you do not educate your children, whatever is left for them will be squandered including land or money due to poor management.But if you instill in them knowledge through education,you are assured of great benefits,” Otafiire said.

The Bishop of Fort Portal Diocese,Rt Rev. Dr. Robert Muhirwa, advised people to embrace vocational and technical education which he said helps a person to be self-reliant through job creation.
