Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni who is currently in Italy on a four-day working visit has met and held talks with Pope Francis.

During the meeting, the Pontiff expressed willingness to visit Uganda.

After the talks, Pope Francis presented the St Martin Medal named after an important missionary in the Catholic church to President Museveni. In return, the president gave Pope Francis a copy of his book, `Sowing the Mustard Seed’ and a portrait of the Crested Crane Uganda’s symbol.

On Sunday, the president visited the Uganda Martyrs’ Catholic Church in Rome, which is dedicated to the Uganda Catholic Martyrs by the Vatican.

  1. A book (with colour photos) about the rich cultural heritage of Uganda and its tourist attractions would have impressed the Pontiff more than “Sowing the Mustard Seed”.

  2. I can imagine M7 confession to Pope like this: I the master have persecuted political opponents,or recenlyt managed to impeach the Lord mayor,few weeks I sacked the PM etc. My lord I had to do it. My lord no money to pay teachers and health workers and we can’t afford to build schools,hospitals,roads and houses. My lord I’m sorry but need to go back keep everything under my control. I shall not repent again until after 2016 as will have to do whatever I can to stay in power. Thank you Pope!!
