Museveni claims he will resurrect like Jesus Christ after he dies

The Ugandan President said he was not scared of death.

According to Mr Museveni, the resurrection of Jesus Christ proves that he can also ascend from death.

“If there is no resurrection, there is no Christianity. I have not yet died and resurrected but I hope I will (die and resurrect), because I am a Christian.”

Mr Museveni supported argument by reading the book of 1 Corinthians 15: 26 in the Bible, which says:

“The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.”
