    How Bebe Cool Saved Me From Taking Alcohol And Sleeping In Bars – Pastor Bujjingo’s Makula Speaks Out…

    Suzan Makula Bujjingo, the wife to House of Prayers Ministries International (HPMI) pastor Aloysious Bujjingo has thanked musician Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool for saving her from from alcohol and sleeping in bars.

    In an interview on Salt TV, ahead of a mentorship camp dubbed ‘Church girl,’ which is due to take place on 25th August, Makula narrated how she was saved by Bebe Cool at a time when she was emotionally and psychologically lost.

    “One time someone asked me, why do you love Bebe Cool?” she said.

    Makula disclosed, “It is not just music, it is beyond music, one time I was lost after giving birth, and I said to myself let me just go to the bar and join Gagamel.

    “So as I was drinking that day, at a place called Stakeout bar, I went with my son who was three years old because I didn’t have anyone to leave him with, my sister wasn’t home and my mother was away.”

    Makula narrated that, one day, she went with her son to the bar at 6 pm but because security did not allow children, she told the security guards that she was going to meet someone (inside the bar) and she would be out in few minutes.

    “When I entered the bar, I hid my son somewhere in the corner and because my son used to over listen to me, I told him not to talk neither cry because they would chase us away from there. So I gave him a soda.”

    The Church girl founder divulged that as Bebe Cool went about greeting his fans during the Gagamel meeting, he noticed she (Makula) was drinking and had a baby beside her, which impression did not make him happy.

    “As he came to meet his fans, I realised he had drunk alcohol although he was not high, but when he saw me with a bottle of alcohol, he asked me who I was and whose baby I was having and what the baby was doing in a bar?”

    Makula responded to Bebe Cool, “I told him he is my son,” adding that she was disappointed in how he questioned her since she was his fan.

    Makula maintained that she was later told by Bebe Cool that her child was not supposed to be in a bar and secondly, he advised her to stop drinking because she is a girl.

    “Bebe Cool advised me that if I wanted to be successful, I should never drink, take drugs and I should avoid men. He told me that men would use me in the bar and dump me. He said men don’t respect women who drink and so asked me to get my son and take him back home.”

    Makula contended, “So as Bebe Cool was talking to me, my son called his name, he then carried him but later realised I loved him (Bebe Cool) so much and then asked me to take my child home immediately if I really loved him.

    “Bebe Cool insisted that the next time we meet, he wants to find when I no longer drink, and when I am not with my child. And so I got my child and spent more five minutes at the bar greeting other people but later told them I had to leave.”

    Makula propounded that those words that Bebe Cool said to her could not leave her mind and when she went back home they kept ringing in her mind even when she was tempted to get a bottle of alcohol.

    “Whenever I would get a bottle of alcohol, I would remember that a girl is not supposed to drink and no man will marry me when I’m drunk,” she added.

    She asserted that God used Bebe Cool to mentor her in a bar and give her advice she never heard from a sister or a brother.

    “Those days it is the community that used to raise children but now these children have people they admire yet they are bad influence. When a child starts saying so and so is my role model, as a parent begin to find out who that person is,” Makula advised parents towards Church girl camp.

    She emphasized, “Your child could start drinking because of the role model because the one she or he calls role model is the mentor. Your child’s dress code is going to come from the musician she adores.”


    Makula Bujjingo is the founder of Church Girl foundation, an organisation which was launched in 2020, aimed at guiding young girls and women on good practices of marriage.

    The foundation also helps in instilling good morals among the girl child.

    Church girl camp is due to take place on 25th, August 2022.

    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.

    Where Is My Brother And Cousin Who You Picked From Our Home In A Drone? Former NBS Journalist Tasks UPDF…



    Jornalist Bahati Remmy and UPDF spokesperson Brig. Felix Kulayigye (R)

    Former NBS journalist, Remmy Bahati has questioned government over the unlawful arrest and detention of her relatives.

    Bahati alleges that her family fell victim to the drone abductions yesterday.

    She revealed that armed plain clothed men driving a drone with no plates stormed her 76-year-old father’s house in Fort Portal City under the guise of searching for ‘guns’.

    “They didn’t find any (guns) and abducted my brother, cousin and his friend who was visiting. Their whereabouts are unknown. Help me find them,” she added.

    The US-based journalist has since pleaded with the defence Spokesperson, Brig. Felix Kulayigye to investigate the matter and help her find her family members.

    “My dad has been going from one police station to the other looking for them but no luck. I demand to know the whereabouts of my brother, cousin and friend identified as Abala.”

    In response to her cry, Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) Spokesperson, Brig. Felix Kulayigye revealed that last evening, the flying squad arrested a one Allan who has been masquerading as a soldier.

    “Police flying Squad assisted by other security agencies carried out an operation to apprehend criminals who have been masquerading in military attires, conning people in & around Fort Portal City. On a tip off, one Kanyesige Allan, main suspect, was netted in Semuliki Lodge and Bar with a lady accomplice, Peace Sudai.”

    “On brief interrogation, he led the security team to the home of Katungi Kelvin, claiming to be his place of aboard. Katungi Kelvin was also on the wanted list as an associate. He too was apprehended. Two other associates Mugisa lsaaya and Asa ba Abdulatif were also arrested. They are all detained at CPS Fort Portal.” UPDF spokesperson said in a statement.

    However, Bahati told the UPDF Spokesperson that none of the people mentioned is a relative to her.

    “None of the pictures of the suspects shared by UPDF is related to me. UPDF don’t play games with me. I need to know where my brother is. Period! The unlawful detentions, torture and abductions must stop.”

    “Where is my brother Mr. Katungi Kelvin, My cousin Mugume Latif and their friend Identified as Abala who you picked up from home in a drone?” she asked.

    UPDF responded to her that, “I did not say they are your relatives, we have shown you those that we arrested from Fort Portal. That’s all.”

    This comes after a number of alleged abductions of different opposition supporters in the infamous drones.

    National Unity Platform (NUP) president, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine recently demanded the release of these victims dead or alive.

    He noted, “The Drones Are Back.” These past three weeks, 15 of our people have been abducted by state operatives. Most are still missing. Others were brought to court days or weeks later, limping as a result of grave torture.”

    I Have Not Asked Anyone To Bail Me Out, I Will Rise Again Like Job In The Bible – Kusasira Tells Netizens Celebrating Her Demise…



    Musician Catherine Kusasira

    Senior Presidential advisor and musician Catherine Kusasira has blasted those celebrating her demise.

    This week Cranima Associates auctioned the musician’s house for failing to clear her loan.

    “Upon instructions from our client a registered Mortgagee, we shall proceed to sell the under mentioned property and developments thereon if any, after the expiry of the thirty (30) days from the date of this notice or thereafter unless the mortgagor/debtor, pays all monies owed to our client, plus our fees and costs incurred in the process,” the advert read.

    Kusasira has now assured haters that he doesn’t need them to bail her out because she has not asked for their help.

    “I have not yet asked anyone to bail me out because people are haters. You are saying I was given a lot of money. State House did not give me that money that you saw me showing off with, it is Balaam who gave me that money. State House does not give old notes,” she noted.

    She added, “But what I know is I’m a strong woman, if the house has gone it is okay. I will get another one. I believe that the God who gave me these things will bring them back.

    “I want to be like Job in the Bible, Job was a believer who never lost his faith in God. Even when they take everything, I will never stop supporting President Museveni.”

    However, blogger Ibrahim Tusubira alias Isma Olaxess consoled his fellow NRM die-hard that it is normal for one to make wrong decisions in business.

    “There factors that lead to such problems like financial discipline. When one holds money that they have never held, they start to spend it like nothing and you feel like your life is changing drastically.”

    Olaxess further advised Kusasira that financial discipline is required in business especially when one gets a lot of money.

    Isma sarcastically told Kusasira that if Balaam gave her money at the start, she should go back to him for more.

    “Kusasira said she is a strong woman. Let her find her friends who helped her in the first place to bail her out.”

    He furthermore adduced that people should stop talking about NRM money being cursed.

    “Won’t we drive nice cars; won’t we sit in aeroplanes, because hospitals are not built? They should understand that those hospitals won’t employ us,” Isma said.
