Archbishop Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu of the Church of Uganda has expressed concern over the scarcity of virgin women in Uganda.

He noted that God is powerful enough to cause a virgin woman to become pregnant without the need for sexual intercourse.

"That is God, that is how powerful He is, He can cause a virgin woman to become pregnant without that thing (sex) which you people love so much. The confusion is why some people say, how can God have a child without it (sex)?"he said.

"No, He is God, He can do the impossible. It isn’t easy to find virgin ladies these days. I am talking about people outside there (outside Parliament). Actually when you promote virginity, some people say that is backwardness," he added.

He urged MPs and men in general not to conduct DNA tests on children with uncertain parentage.

"I want to encourage the men, especially MPs, sometimes you aren’t at home, something can happen and a child is born. So now, let me encourage you be like Joseph, don’t go for DNA," he said.

He encouraged them to embrace these children, drawing inspiration from Joseph's acceptance of Jesus, to promote peace and harmony in homes.

He acknowledged the confusion surrounding this belief but emphasised that God can do the impossible. He said he had faced criticism for promoting virginity, with some considering it backward.

Mugalu encouraged women to pray for men who stray from their marriages. He suggested praying for their safety from HIV/AIDS and even jokingly suggested creating an upset stomach to discourage infidelity.

For married individuals who witness their spouses being unfaithful, he advised them to pray for that person and seek peace for themselves.

He reminded them that they cannot control everything and trying to do so may lead to premature death.
