A section of legislators has advised religious leaders to be accommodative to all the masses regardless of their political affiliations warning them of the repercussions of siding with President Museveni in the next general elections.
This comes after a number of Pentecostal pastors came out openly to indicate their commitment to campaigning for President Museveni in the forthcoming general elections.
Recently, President Museveni has met a number of believers from different Pentecostal churches across the country emphasising to them the need for unity.
In the past few days President Museveni has met congregations organized by Pastor Robert Kayanja, Pastor Jackson Ssenyonga in Kampala and Pastor Tom Ngobi from Jinja.
In response, some pastors have indicated their commitment to campaigning for President Museveni in the next elections, something that has rubbed some people the wrong way.
MPs Asuman Basalirwa (Bugiri) and Patrick Nsamba (Kassanda North) said this development is unfortunate.
Basalirwa said religious leaders should be accommodative to all politicians regardless of their political affiliation.
He said they risk dividing their flock along political lines.
Some NRM MPs however said the fact that some pastors are siding with NRM is indication that they have received the wisdom of God and are guiding their followers to do the right thing.
