The Woman Member of Parliament for Soroti district Alice Alaso has urged Uganda Members of Parliament to seriously pray for the nation to enable it successfully and peacefully go through the 2011 Uganda general elections.
The coming Uganda elections are becoming a concern to the general public for fear of degenerating into bloodshed if poorly handled.
Alaso who is also the opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) political party Secretary General appealed to Uganda MP’s to pray for other Uganda pressing problems like the biting famine in the Eastern Uganda sub- region of Teso, child sacrifice and burning of schools among others.
The Uganda Minister of Disaster Preparedness, Prof. Tarsis Kabwegyere advised Parliament to take up the issue seriously because, it helps to unite divided leaders when coming together for prayers.
Uganda which is predominantly a Christian country holds a national prayer day on 8th October of every year.
