President Yoweri Museveni launched the book “Jesus’ Africa,” authored by his daughter, Patience Museveni Rwabwogo. The book explores the deep connection between Africa and Christianity, emphasizing the role of the African church in God’s plan for redemption.

President Yoweri Museveni has launched Jesus’ Africa, a book authored by the First Daughter, entrepreneur and evangelist, Patience Museveni Rwabwogo with a call for the young generation to use the exposure and build the capacity to consolidate the victory of Africa that was started by their ancestors and elders.

The book Jesus’ Africa is a deliberate illumination of the link between the African Continent and Christianity and a tie that stretches the lengths of biblical history.

In the book, Pastor Patience extensively discusses the role of the church and in particular the African church in God’s plan to redeem nations and her spiritual encounter with God at the age of 11, which set her on the path to preach the gospel.

She also points to a historical error of Africa of selling away the birthright that needs correction. The book was launched on Friday 23rd June at a function held at State House-Entebbe.

“Therefore, I’m glad to see that young people are now coming up to see that the problem we have in Africa is the problem of the Edomite curse of selling our birthright,” President Museveni said, adding that the young people can do better to concretize what their grandfathers like Mzee Kenyatta, Julius Nyerere and others started, citing examples like the Pan Africanist Movement, the African National Congress of South Africa in 1912 and the resistance against Bismarck that defeated the colonialists.

The President advised that Africans can be able to consolidate the continent’s victory through economic and political integration.

“That’s what is lacking plus self-sufficiency in agriculture, manufacturing and in science,” H.E Museveni noted.

The President further encouraged parents to do their best for their children because they can pick and continue doing the good things being told to them.

“The parents have a challenge to give enough exposure to the children,” Mr. Museveni said.

He thanked his daughter Pastor Patience not only for the depth of the knowledge in the book but also linking it with African patriotism and pan Africanism to show that if you don’t defend your birthright, the thief can take it away and God can bless him. “This is incredible, and it is exactly the problem of Africa,” President Museveni said, adding that if Africans did not give away the birthright, there was no way at that time the Europeans could have penetrated Africa because they didn’t have technology that was strong enough to defeat them.

“Yes, they had some guns, but those guns were not very efficient, and the Ethiopians defeated the Italians in 1896. So, the main problem was us ourselves, especially the chiefs. So therefore, Patience is hitting the nail on the head, when she says that the problem is that we sold our birthright by being greedy and divided. I really want to congratulate Patience for this insight,” H.E Museveni said.

Gen. Museveni also assured that Africa has everything and should not be intimidated by those threatening to cut off aid.

“We don’t need aid. We have everything here! We don’t need anything from anybody. The only problem we have is the Edomite curse of selling our birth right,” President Museveni noted, giving an example of coffee business where Coffee producing countries mainly in Africa are sharing only 25 billion dollars out of the global value of 460 billion dollars.

“Because we sell the coffee unprocessed as a raw material, then some people go, roast it, grind it and get more money than we the growers of the coffee, what’s the problem there? The problem of the Edomite curse,” H.E Museveni said.

The President described Pastor Patience as the only priest in the family for the first time in 140 years since the arrival of Christianity in 1877 (Anglicans) and Catholics in 1879.

On her part, Pastor Patience Rwabwogo told the gathering how she received a revelation from God in 2005 when she saw the vision of God’s redemptive purpose for Africa.

“That was the beginning of the revelation and over the last 17 years, the revelation has continued to grow. Like an onion, each revelation from God opens the door to the next, always going deeper and deeper into the council of God. God started revealing that we cannot move forward as a continent without dealing with the spiritual routes of two of the seminal events of African history; slavery and Colonialism,” Pastor Patience said, adding that she was surprised by the revelation because she thought these were tragic historical events that are left in the past but, “God showed me that although the routes were in the past, the fruits were still present today and that unless we dealt with those routes, we would never experience true freedom whether here in Africa or the diaspora”.

In attendance was Pastor Dr. Dorcas Rigathi, the Second Lady of the Republic of Kenya and Spouse of the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya, H.E. Rigathi Gachagua. Pastor Dorcas delivered greetings from the President, the Vice President and the entire people of the Republic of Kenya.

She described the author of the book Jesus’ Africa, Pastor Patience as a woman of profound vision and exemplary talent with a great vision that has enabled her to put together a work of divine wisdom with razor-sharp and unwavering passion.
