AUDIO: Pastor Bugembe Impregnated Me And Abandoned His Son – Woman Claims, I Have Never Slept With Aidah, I Am Ready To Go For DNA – Pastor Bugembe



Pastor Wilson Bugembe of Light the World Ministries in Nansana says that he is ready to go for DNA after a one Nalweyiso Aidah claimed that she impregnated her and she gave birth to a baby boy who is two years old now.

In a phone interview with the Grapevine, pastor Wilson Bugembe says that he doesn’t know Aidah and he has never seen her anywhere. Bugembe says that if Aidah insists on planting her kid on him, he is ready to go for a DNA test, but if the results come out and the child is not his, the woman has to pay him for soiling his name.

“I am ready for the DNA so that the world knows the truth. I have never slept with that lady and I don’t know her, but if the results come back and show that the child is not mine, she has to pay one hundred million shillings or go to jail for her defamatory statements,” Bugembe said

Pictures of Bugembe, the mother to the kid and the kid himself have been circulating on social media accompanied with the audio of Nalweyiso claiming that ever since Bugembe impregnated her, he has never given her help and the kid is now set to start school.

Nalweyiso says she was a member of the Light the World Ministries and that’s where Bugembe saw her from and they started dating but when she got pregnant, she was dumped by the pastor and no help has been given to her ever since and the child is now making two years.

According to the audio, Nalweyiso says when she gave birth to the baby, she named him Bugembe Everest but when she told Bugembe, he denied the child but started giving her five thousand shillings weekly which was not enough to take care of them.

Nalweyiso says that she is ready to reward anyone who could help her reach pastor Bugembe.

 In attendance was Gloria Mulungi Senyonjo alias Baby Gloria who advised Fresh Kid to always be at school in order to succeed in life, Seguya Faisal alias Rabadaba, who is also an old boy of Kampala Parents School. Rabadaba applauded Fresh Kid for his exceptional talent and advised him to develop it daily.

“Education gives you the domain of music, a person who is educated articulates things easily,” Rabadaba advised.

The executive director Performance Rights Society James Wasula advised the parents of Fresh Kid to ensure that he attends school on a daily basis because this will help him in future. He cautioned his manager not to over work the kid rapper by making him stay long hours on stage.

“Fresh Kid should decide on his money even if he is young, saving for him will also help him especially in future. Don’t make this boy over stay on stage, we shall make sure that he attends school on daily basis and we shall follow up,” Wasula said.

Mrs. Namata Madrine, the mother to Fresh Kid applauded Kampala Parents School and promised to fulfill her role as a mother in making sure that he excels.
