Uganda’s New Vision newspaper quotes a senior politician as saying “poor people will not go to heaven because they insult God through lamentations and accusations every day”.

Internal Affairs Minister Kahinda Otafiire reportedly made those comments at a school event in Kyenjojo, western Uganda, while telling students that hard work was the antidote to poverty.

“If you do not use the tools God gave you, do not blame him when you remain poor. Strive to overcome poverty because being rich is glorious,” he is reported as saying.

Youth unemployment and underemployment is high in Uganda, which has one of the world’s youngest populations with 75% of citizens under the age of 30.
