God Blesses Those Who Overstay In Power: Museveni To Set Another Record Of Hosting The Pope Twice

Published

on

Contrary to what opposition politicians tell us, it seems God blesses those who overstay in power.

President Museveni is set to make another record of becoming the first Uganda president (and Africa) to host the Pope twice. This was revealed by the Archbishop of Kampala diocese Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga during the memorial lecture of Archbishop Dr. Joseph Nakabaale Kiwanuka at Pope Paul Memorial Hotel.

Lwanga officially announced that Pope Francis is scheduled to return to Uganda next year in July and he has already received confirmation from president Museveni.

It should be remembered that for a Pope to visit a country, he has to be invited by the head of the Church and President of the country.

Dr Lwanga said that the pontiff will be attending the conference for all African bishops which will take place in Uganda where over 500 bishops from across African continent and Madagascar island will be in attendance.

The Vatican is said to have written to the Uganda Episcopal Conference confirming the receipt of SECAM’S invitation and also forwarding a written reply of the Pope’s acceptance.

Pope Francis was in Uganda for a three-day official visit in November 2015. He was the third pontiff to visit Uganda after Pope Paul VI in July 1969 and Pope John Paul II in February 1993.

Leave Politics If You Don’t Want To Lose Your Talents – Pastor Ronnie Makabai Warns Musicians

Published

on

Senior pastor of Evangelical Truth Ministries (ETM) and founder of the church’s partner media outlets, Brother Ronnie Makabai has once again prophesied doom for musicians who have decided to join politics.

The man of God, who was recently in court in land related scandals said, “I don’t want to interfere in what isn’t my business but it’s wise to keep on your track, many artists are going to lose their talents, unless it’s your calling, no problem, but if it’s not, please don’t bother you are going to lose. It doesn’t mean that if you are so popular, that’s when you’re going to get leadership, you can be popular and you fail to get leadership, they can only talk about you but its only God who determines leadership and If what I say is true, it means I am true,’’ brother Ronnie told believers who conregated at Holy City church in Bwerenga in Katabi town council, Wakiso District, in his Good Friday message.

As the country gears up for the 2021 elections, many musicians have already declared their interest to stand in various constituencies. Among them include Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine, who has declared his intentions to stand for presidency, Jose Chameleone, who wants to stand as Lord Mayor, Godfrey Lutaaya, Ronald Mayinja, Dr. Hilderman, Khalifah Aganaga, Victor Kamenyo, Eddie Yawe, Full Figure, among others.

Brother Ronnie also advised politicians to hand themselves to God, “if politicians don’t hand themselves into God’s hands, they will face hard times because politics will become difficult for them and they will lose their political career. In 2018, as the year was ending, I prophesied that 2019 may be a tough year for Sudan’s president Omar al Bashir and that he might not finish it, as I speak right now, he under detention, therefore if politicians don’t come back to God many will face it rough.”

When asked about Uganda, Brother Ronnie only gave a sneak peep, saying he knows who is going to be the next president but did not indulge into the details.

“I don’t want to scare you. I can even tell you the month! As a country all we need is peace and we should pray for our country,” he stated.

One of the staff asked Kiganda to first pay their arrears of the last three months, they also asked him for an explanation on why he didn’t inform them early enough that he was going to fire them so that they prepare themselves.

Kiganda explained to them that he was expecting some money from a big government officer but unfortunately, he let him down and now he doesn’t have any alternative apart from firing them.

LETTER: Pope Cancels Second Visit To Uganda

Published

on

Pope Francis has canceled his second visit to Uganda. In a letter signed by the Uganda Episcopal Conference Secretary General Msgr. John B. Kauta, the Pope will not grace the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM) as earlier communicated.

“The office of the President of Uganda has officially communicated to the Ugandan Episcopal Conference that the Holy Father will not be able to attend the symposium,” reads in part the statement by Mgr. Kauta.

The SECAM came into existence after a meeting by African bishops in 1969 in Kampala, following a resolution by the Vatican Council to have a structure that would bring together Catholic Churches in Kampala and Pope Paul VI presided over its inauguration.

Pope Francis last visited Uganda in November 2015, therefore his visit was going to be a big occasion as over 400 Bishops are set to gather to mark 50 years of SECAM.

The Uganda Episcopal Conference has however in the statement said the 50-year celebrations will continue as scheduled, and will take place at Uganda Martyrs Catholic Shrine in Namugongo despite the Pope’s absence.
