    The leader of Born Again Faith in Uganda (BAFU) Apostle Dr. Joseph Sserwadda has said that they will not allow sex to be taught in schools.

    Sserwadda said that the government through the ministry of Education has been misusing the words in the framework and lying to Ugandans that they are planning to teach sexuality yet they want to teach sex to the young children .

    Sserwadda says that they have disagreed with the officials from the ministry of Education and unless they change the wording of some of the topics. He said that a child should be taught discipline but not sex and the parents should be directly involved because they spend much time with their children.

    Speaking after a meeting held at the Born Again Faith headquarters at Najjanankumbi with officials from the ministry of Education, Sserwadda lashed out at the education system in Uganda for trying  to take over the culture and religious norms of Ugandans, he warned that they will not allow this to happen and called for a review of the frame work .

    “The ministries of Ethics and integrity, gender and health should be so much concerned with the child, a child at three years can’t be taught sex ,we are not allowing this and we shall fight tooth and nail to make a change, I used to have showers with my sisters and nothing could happen, now tell a child of this generation to do so, we shall not allow this to be taught in our schools ,” Sserwadda said.

    The man of God assured the acting Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education Aggrey Andrew Kibenge that they will use the thirty days given to them to draft a document after today’s discussion about the National Sexuality Education framework 2018 and see what they remove and leave in the frame work before it starts to be used in schools.

    However, Kibenge said that no one has the capacity to change the curriculum without consulting and that’s why they have done so. He added that because of the situation of the program, they have to consult all the stake holders to see what they think about the curriculum.

    Aggrey said that they found out that the number of girls dropping out of schools has increased that is why they think that the program will help curb down the number of dropouts.

    “Look at the situation in the country, children are always on television and social media which has spoilt them, we need to tell our children the truth before it’s too late,” Kibenge added.

    PICTURES:  Pastor Bujjingo Fills Up Kololo Grounds During Independence Night Prayers; Pr. Kayiwa Asks His Brother Kato Lubwama To Get Saved…

    Published

    on

    Thousands of believers flocked Kololo Independence grounds to Pray, Praise and worship the Almighty God.

    This was during the Independence Night prayers organised by House of Prayer Ministries International pastor, Aloysious Bujjingo.

    Believers from different parts of the country and abroad withstood the rain to worship and pray from Friday 6:00am to Saturday 6:00am.

    Independence night prayers are organized every year every year towards independence.

    Pr. Bujjingo revealed that just like Uganda was able to get independence in 1962 from the British, he decided to organise these prayers to pray for believers so that they are liberated from whatever is distressing their lives.

    The theme for this year’s prayers was ‘Pursue, Overtake and Recover All’, from 1 Samuel 30:8 where King David inquired from God concerning launching an attack on Israel’s enemy, the Amalekites, “Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And He answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”

    Pr. Bujjingo told believers that through constant prayer, trust and faith in the Almighty God, He will give them victory in anything that they need and pray for including fighting their enemies both seen and unseen just like He did for David.

    He further told believers to always depend and rely fully on God for a good life here on earth and also for the inheritance of eternal life.

    Believers were seen in deep prayer with some rolling on the floor as they were delivered from demons.

    During prayers, Pr. Bujjingo invited his spiritual father, Pr. Simeon Kayiwa, the Vice Chancellor for Kayiwa University who appreciated him so much for saving his brother former Member of Parliament, Kato Lubwama.

    Through a song, Pr. Simeon noted that Lubwama loves Pr. Bujjingo so much that he (Lubwama) tried to understand how to pray.

    “I know most of you people were not aware that Kato Lubwama is my biological brother and that we share the same mother,” he said.

    He added, “I know he is not saved but I believe one day he will because he loves you (Bujjingo) so much. Thank you for loving him too.”

    Bujjingo prayed through the rain which started at 2:00pm and stopped at 5;00pm leaving many socked in water but that did not stop them from worshiping and praying to God.

    During the night prayers at 11:00pm, Bujjingo introduced his wife, Suzan Makula and the couple excited believers when they danced the “kinyarwanda dance”.

    Over 2000 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ.

    EXCLUSIVE: How Mufti Mubajje, Hajji Mugalu, Hajji Nadduli  Used Millitary Tactics And Kanyamas To Survive Impeachment Over Corruption, Extortion Allegations…

    Published

    Al-Hajji Abdul Nadduli (L) the chairperson of the UMSC Executive and Sheikh Shaban Mubajje (R)

    Upon getting information on Monday morning that a section of the members from the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) General Assembly were planning a clandestine move to impeach him from the office of the Mufti, Sheikh Shaban Ramathan Mubajje decided to use Luweero tactics.

    Mubajje summoned an emergency meeting at his Supreme Council offices in Old Kampala to strategize on how to overcome angry members who were accusing him of corruption, extortion, abuse of office by selling Muslim properties illegally.

    The tense meeting was attended by Mugalu, Al-Hajji Abdul Nadduli, the chairperson of the UMSC Executive, Hajji Abdul Kiyimba, the former Kyengera town council chairperson among others.

    Credible sources who attended the early morning meeting revealed that Nadduli was given strict orders not to allow any member to bring a motion which is not on the agenda.

    Sources further revealed that Hajji Kiyimba was given instructions to coordinate security and not to allow any person who is not a member of the General Assembly to enter into the meeting room including journalists.

    Sources added that immediately after the meeting, Kiyimba made several phone calls to security chiefs asking them to give him security at the UMSC General Assembly claiming that they had got wind of a plot by a section of members who planned to disrupt the meeting.

    Old Kampala police station commander ASP Tyson Rutambika took over security which included commandos from the police’s counter terrorism department and from the field police.

    Hajji Kiyimba was also seen entering UMSC headquarters with a number of ‘kanyamas’ who he instructed to take control of all doors that enter the meeting room, “I heard him telling them to carryout anyone who tried to bring commotion in the room,” a source disclosed.

    As the security preparations were going on, the Delegates who wanted to impeach Mubajje were busy signing the impeachment paper and by 8am on Monday, 147 out of the 200 delegates had appended their signatures and were determined to indict Allah’s man Mubajje.

    Sources divulged that while all this was happening, Mubajje was in his office making panicky phone calls to various people.

    Meanwhile, his men were planning on how to frustrate the impeachment move.

    They sent some of their men to masquerade as members of the general assembly who wanted to sign the impeachment papers, when they gave them papers to sign, they ran away with them and the architects of the impeachment process started running after them.

    “Security allowed them to go with the papers out of the premises of UMSC and the architects of the impeachment feared to run after them out of the UMSC headquarters,” a source said.

    Sources revealed that upon learning that the impeachment papers were stolen, the Mubajje team started announcing on the microphone that time had reached for the general assembly to start.

    Sources divulged that the members who wanted to impeach Mubajje and friends entered the meeting room in a cold mood and one of the old sheikh advised them to avoid making any commotion in the room.

    “My sons don’t fight, I remember very well what happened here in 1994, when Jamil Mukulu attacked us to take over the UMSC management by force. A policeman was killed and a police dog was also slaughtered, so let us avoid that” a senior sheikh quoted one of his colleagues warning some angry members.

    Sheikh Muhammad Irumba, one of the Sheikhs who were behind Mubajje’s impeachment said that Mubajje won the battle but the war is still on.

    He explained that they have petitioned the High Court Civil Division Kampala seeking a declaration that whatever was done in the general assembly was illegal.

    They want court to declare that the actions done by Mubajje, Nadduli and Mugalu were illegal and that they are holding the offices at UMSC illegally.

    When contacted, Mugalu insisted that whatever was done at the general assembly was legal and bidding.

    “You know even at wedding parties such angry people attend, so at the general assembly, we heard of such people but the assembly was handled peacefully and members appreciated the organising committee which I chaired myself,” Mugalu said.

    On the issue of the heavy security which threatened some members of the general assembly, he defended the move saying that as organizers, they were supposed to provide security to members which is normal.

    He declined to comment about allegations that him, together with Mubajje bribed the Joint Session Committee with Shs.9m to reinstated him as the Secretary General after being dismissed by the Executive Committee on allegations of corruption, exhortation, corruption and abuse of office.

    This is the third time Mubajje is surviving impeachment. In 2008 and 2010, he was consecutively impeached by the general assembly but he refused to vacate the office claiming that he was illegally impeached.
