    Bugingo’s Salt TV Scares Other City TV Stations



    The story of Kaweesi’s girl friend Christine Mbabazi Muhoza has made Ps Bugingo Aloysius’ Salt media and more so the TV more known in such a short time. The Wakaliga based TV station managed by Bukedde Gataliko nfuufu defector Teera Kaaya is the one that broke the Mbabazi story and how she was being held incommunicado by ISO operatives.
    TEERA KAAYA even had footage that went viral on internet and social media through their YouTube channel. Facebook bully TVO praised them and posted their original clip on his facebook page and it went viral in Uganda and everywhere in the world. Kaweesi was a much liked police officer and any story about him attracts interest and this is what exactly happened in Bugingo’s case. One of the managers of a rival
    local TV station said in the morning meeting ‘that woman must be a member of Bugingo’s church otherwise there is no way they would have such easy to the house and the story yet all the crews I sent there
    were not allowed access.’ In Serena based NTV, the news producers came under attack by their supervisors asking ‘why did you miss that story and yet a small channel like Salt had it first hand?’  The producer replied by saying ‘we tried and failed to get the time and by the time we got it was too late, it was already stale and perished because Bugingo’s crew had put it everywhere already’. The people in the NTV morning planning news meeting agreed they should look for their own separate story because ‘this one has been fully exhausted by Bugingo otherwise it will look like we are just coping Salt TV’. In NBS’ case the guys tried to air the story but the more they kept putting it there, the more it looked like news viewers had already watched it on facebook because of the way TVO circulated it everywhere just to embarrass Kayihura and M7’s government.

    TVO’s plan was different but it had the unintended results, which is popularizing Bugingo’s Salt media-radio and TV. When viewers saw it on TVO’s page they realized it was a good channel with good picture quality and the viewers saw they had been missing out a lot on this great channel. At BBS, the news manager came under pressure from his bosses as to why he wasn’t reporting anything about the Mbabazi saga and he told the bosses that ‘sir I have tried my best and there isn’t anything new we can report because Bugingo’s Salt media reported everything and it’s not news anymore’. The editor consoled his team and said ‘’let’s keep the story we had prepared for our archives because that is for sure Bugingo’s story’.  In the meantime, Bugingo scored highly and crisis meetings were held at both NBS and NTV to strategize and see how to reverse the ground Bugingo covered in the Mbabazi-Kaweesi story. The news teams at the two leading TV channels agreed to let go of the Mbabazi story but come up with their own big exclusive that will make the public forget about the Salt media scoop on the Mbabazi-Kaweesi saga. Inside sources tell the Grapevine that Bugingo’s TV would be very far but the problem is the pastor is the owner himself. Insider sources say Bugingo is ever telling news manager Teera Kaaya not to air certain exclusive stories because he feels such stories, even when the public likes them, can annoy UCC and cause problems for the station.

    Pastor Kayiwa Warns Politicians On Interfering In Church Affairs…



    Pastor Simeon Kayiwa (C) of Namirembe Christian Fellowship addressing the press

    Pastor Simeon Kayiwa of Namirembe Christian Fellowship in Mengo has urged politicians to stop interfering in church affairs as a stepping stone to building their political careers because this is weakening the church.

    While addressing the media at the Mengo based church about the upcoming Pastors fire conference which will be presided over by an American Philanthropist Dr. Michelle Caralan , Professor Simeon Kayiwa urged politicians to desist from mixing political issues in church matters because even in the Western world, there are people who don’t believe in homosexuality.

    Kayiwa said that the church is weakening especially on the African continent to the countries like Uganda because of such acts and it’s time to bring all people together near to God through prayers so that they never turn back to satanic acts of homosexuality.

    “We shall not welcome any one dealing in homosexuality, not even the pope if he tries to come back to Uganda, we welcome the Church of Uganda’s firm stand against this act and Ugandans too who believe in their norms and culture. Not every white person believes in homosexuality, that’s why Dr. Michelle is coming for a two days prayer conference in Uganda,” said Prof. Simeon Kayiwa.

    Dr. Michelle Carralan will be in Uganda for a two days Pastors Conference which will attract more than 100 pastors from around the global at Nsambya Sharing Hall Kampala from the 8th to 9th August 2023 .

    Dr. Michelle is the founder, pastor and president of Breath of the spirit Ministries International and she has been ministering for more than 45 years.

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



    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.
