We Are Soon See If Our Leadership Is Wicked: Prophet Mbonye Calls Religious Leaders A Lying Machinery Infected By Dirty Politics…

OPEN LETTER TO THE POLITICAL LEADERS OF UGANDA

Greeting in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

To those of you who are truly committed to the building of our nation into a desirable place to live, one we can be proud of, thank you. However, I would be failing in my duty if I did not bring to your attention what is Divinely required of you and urge your thoughtful consideration. You bear heavy responsibilities especially in these times when the threat of a global evil agenda is knocking at the door of our beloved nation. Oh Uganda, may God uphold thee!

In the face of this danger, there is no escaping either the gravity or the totality of this threat if we are to ensure the survival of what truly makes us as a nation whose God is the true God. We know from Proverbs 14:34 that “righteousness exalts a nation”, and believe me this goes beyond holding “prayer breakfasts” and merely giving God lip service in your speeches. Therefore, I do ask every politician to re-examine his or her own conscience as far as this imminent matter is concerned, and to recognize the nature of our country’s peril.

Proverbs 29:2 says, “when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth the rule, the people moan”. Uganda will turn out to be a reflection of either the righteous being in authority, in which the people rejoice, or the wicked, bearing the rule in which case the people moan. The events of recent months will help to illuminate your stand in matters concerning God’s agenda and or otherwise the enemy’s global agenda. Please, don’t give us reason to suspiciously watch you.

For instance, there are conditions which the Ugandan people would never consent to. So I hope you bear this in mind as one who truly cares not only for the well being but also for the freedom of the people or else it would tantamount to some kind of raping of human rights. Using a crisis, a time to darkness, to pass or impose certain laws would not be any different from the time that was chosen by Jesus’ detractors to arrest Him; “when I was daily with in the temple ye stretched forth no hands against me: but THIS IS YOUR HOUR, and the power of darkness”- Luke 22:53.

Unfortunately, you have not even spared place of worship as your tentacles have spread across and seen and felt. The “clergy” who have been infected by dirty politics have brought this contagious bug to the churches, infecting the flock with it and thus ravaging it by causing division using the hate that is witnessed. You must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, especially when it extends to matters of faith.

Guard against the temptation of playing God like other States have seemingly done, because if you do, you can count on us to resist you with our very life: “and they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony. AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO DEATH” – Revelation 12:11. We are as a people inherently and historically devoted to God. And also please, stop the arrogance of trying to resist certain men and women of God just because they are not your preference by deciding for the people who they should or should not listen to. This is also playing God we will resist it.

Dear politician, if it looks like tyranny, talks like tyranny and walks like tyranny it is not constitutional democracy. This self deluded arrogance which goes like this: “my version of Christianity is right, and yours is wrong, and because you are wrong, your freedom of worship doesn’t need to be taken into account”, should have no place in a civilized society. Look at the historical tyrannies and show me the difference between them and this kind of attitude. There is none.

Dear politician, don’t get us to the place where we have to make a choice between you and God: “judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to listen to you rather than God” – Acts 4:19. Be God- conscious in your responsibilities. Surround yourself with real men and women of God; the ones you can consult with about the mind of God concerning any matter, not the ones that are merely your puppets. The good news is such men and women who hear God exist. The bad news is these are the ones that have fallen prey to the slandering, blackmailing, patronizing and lying machinery of the dirty politician. The naive segment of the public has been hoaxed by this machinery of dirty politicians.

Dear politician, these issues are for you to deal with. No other person will deal with them for you. In these last days, those who make themselves our enemies, that is, enemies of God, are setting themselves up for a fall. They are “kicking against the pricks”. The cup of their rebellion is almost full before God, waiting to be poured upon them in judgement.

Dear politician, you can ignore God but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring God.

Mr. President Parents Have No Money To Pay School Fees For Candidates, Let Us Declare This A Dead Year – Pastors Bujjingo Advises With Museveni….

Published

on

Pastor Aloysious Bujjingo

House of Prayers Ministries International Pastor Aloysious Bujjingo has advised president Museveni to declare this year a dead year because parents do not have money to pay school fees.

In an interview with the Grapevine, the Salt Media Chief Executive Officer (CEO)  says that if Candidate classes are allowed to resume schooling, many students are going to be sent back to school because their parents cannot afford to pay school fees since they have not been working.

“First of all I want to thank President Museveni for the way he has handled the Covid-19 Pandemic. It’s because of his exceptional guidance that this country has passed with flying colours as far as fighting the pandemic is concerned. Uganda has not lost anyone to the pandemic and those who get the virus are healing and being sent back home,” Bujjingo says.

He adds, “Our people are protected because of the wisdom God gave to President Museveni. However, he mentioned something about allowing students in candidate classes to go back to school. I would like our dear Minister of Education Mama Janet Museveni to think about this; since the day our children returned home on 20th March, many parents have to not been working. All sectors came to a standstill. It is vital to think about candidates but it is also crucial to look at how sustainable this decision is.”

“We need to look at the livelihoods of the parents, Teachers, school leaders and owners. How are they going to sustain operations in these schools? How are they going to pay the teachers? The president advised well that once they allow candidates only, the school will be big enough to maintain social distancing, but the parents have no money to pay school fees,” he says.

He says, “As pastors, we talk to very many people, and I can tell you that 99% of the parents had not completed school fees for first term by the time the schools were closed. Now taking them back to school means paying school fees, it means schools have to feed these students, many of them had not yet even paid registration fees for their children in candidate classes, this means a parent has to look for registration fees also. This is a huge burden on a parent who has not been working.”

He advises, “My question is, can government help parents with school fees and registration fees? And can government also help schools with food to feed these candidates? If government can’t do this, let us accept that this year is dead. If we all agree that it is ok for a senior three student not to go to senior four this year, I think it is also ok for a senior four candidate not to go to Senior five and for a senior six student not to go to University this year.”

“We are all in the same boat. Why should we allow students to go back to school and then they are chased after a few weeks because of school fees? And I can assure you, many are going to be returned home because of school fees. Very few parents can now ably pay school fees,” he says.

Bujjingo also called upon President Museveni to open churches.

“I would also like government to look into opening churches because in times like these, we can only run to God. I thank God for our President who believes in God. The Bible says that ‘Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance (Psalms 33:12). If markets can be open and exercise social distancing, let us allow people to fellowship and worship the LORD but with social distancing in churches,” he says.

He adds, “The good thing people will have masks, churches will provide water and soap so that believers wash hands at the entrance but we need to kneel down before the LORD united as believers. We can put measures like; a church that houses 4000 people can have around 1000 people, we can do it like it’s going to be done with public transport because we need to go back to God, it is only God who will sail us through this. Churches are gazetted places of worship, which is why it’s good to keep them open.”

Today, the State Minister for Higher Education, John Chrysostom Muyingo told parliament that the ministry is working on the guidelines that will be used as schools open for candidate classes.

He added that they are looking into concerns raised by some parents that they cannot raise school fees for their children in candidate classes.

The Battle To Investigate Watoto Childcare Ministry: Beneficiaries Point Guns At Minister Nakiwala, Fire Testimony Bullets At Her As ‘Haters’ Insist, Something Sinister Is Going On And Pastor Skinner Has To Answer…..

Published

on

Children and adults who have benefited from Watoto childcare, a branch of Kampala road based Watoto Church Ministries have pointed guns at the Minister of State for Youth and Children Affairs, Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi for attempting to demonize their Pastor Gary Skinner, a man who has given them hope, a sense of belonging and a future they never have thought about during their miserable days.

This week, it is alleged Nakiwala tasked Internal Security Organisation (ISO) to start investigating some of the activities of Watoto church especially those related to children.

Media reports said that Nakiwala wants ISO to probe claims that the orphans in watoto Church fundraise millions of dollars from wealthy philanthropists in US, Canada, America and Malaysia but it is misused by the top leadership of the church.  She also faults Watoto Ministries for not complying with laws governing children adoption for those who become financially vulnerable as a result of being orphaned.

According tosecurity blogger Titus Seruga, there are also allegations that government suspects that the mission might be promoting homosexuality, child trafficking and other activities not in line with govt.

Last evening, Parliament’s director of communications and public affairs Chris Obore rallied graduates and beneficiaries of Watoto Church and Watoto Childcare ministry to share testimonies of how the ministry has benefitted them so that they fight the devil that has attacked their church.

Obore said, “All the graduates/ beneficiaries of @watoto Church and Watoto Childcare ministry , please now is the time to use the power of testimony. Come help the investigators know Watoto childcare ministry. Let’s resist the devil and he will flee away. Let the world hear the testimony of what God is doing in Watoto Childcare ministry. Let the world hear the holistic approach Watoto uses to restore hope in abandoned and vulnerable children and families. Christians are truth seekers and truth tellers. Let the truth be told to the world.”

This compelled many to heed to his call.

Gad Sax Gifted Hands who testified how Watoto changed his life

A one Gad Sax Gifted Hands testified, “I was six-years-old when I came to Watoto. “Living at Watoto was paradise.”

First and foremost there was a strong, contagious sense of love and acceptance and belonging. [Before Watoto] I was always [searching] for a way to have a day’s meal and spend numerous hours in the garden. I would then go home to only have a cup of tea before going to sleep. At  Watoto[Bbira] I had everything I needed. I always had plenty of food. Three meals a day. I never had to worry about school fees being paid right from grade one to university, but More so I was given a brand new family, and mama Sarah loved me just like her very own son.

I recently graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication, majoring in TV and Radio Broadcast. Mama Sarah was so proud of me and she was there to celebrate with me.

I look back over the years and then remember Mama Sarah, who dedicated her life to raising and mentoring me in the Ways of the Lord. She’s retired now though Our journey started in November 2000 until December 2017 when I finally brought her my Graduation transcript. She told me, “My son, this is reason enough to prove that I have run my race- Go into the world be Winner!”

He added, “Through Watoto God’s love has reached even the least of these women who had been scarred as a result of War, Aids, poverty… and there has been no end to these and other crises that have proven disastrous for women. Discrimination of women in Uganda is not fiction, yet the fact becomes harder to believe with every page we turn. Every story is a window on the inhumanities that women face.

Looking at faces of these ladies, as they flash on their beautiful smiles, you can never tell, that behind those smiles and the energy they use when praising God was once covered up with rejection, loneliness, and hopelessness. There was a time when they questioned their existence and wondered if God really loved them.

Behind each of their smiles, there is a powerful story to tell. One that will leave you mesmerised at how amazing our God is! God never forgets His children. He always comes out for them at the right time. He surely did show up in the lives of these women.

These ladies come to Watoto when they are rejected, bruised, and hopeless. It is a great privilege that God has called Watoto come along side them, to simply be Jesus’ hands and Feet from right where they are. ”

Rwashana Simon said, “Chris Obore, that is simple . We shall also launch a National drive that the Government run Children’s homes be investigated and shown on Television alongside those of Watoto and see if that Minister will have a job by this time next year. I think its high time the government realizes that you can not have the efficiency of a private institution in a government run institution and they should actually respect the efforts of Private actors.”

Pastor Gary Skinner with Minister Nakiwala Kiyingi recently

Despite the testimonies, some Ugandans advised Watoto to allow the audit and investigations so that the malicious rumours can be put to bed.

Gerald Wanzala Werikhe said, “That Church has done a great job in this country.Very accountable and professional in every sense and has touched lives of so many I know.”

Joe Elunya Snr said, “Investigation if carried out in the best interest of the children would be a moral right to me.”

Ivan Odiit-Onapito, “The minister was given a high profile tour of the children’s villages. She even gave a glowing tribute and thanked Pr. Skinner for the good work. I dont know where this is coming from. Maybe because the President mentioned in his address that he didnt know where the children were coming from and why they were moving around. That could have been the minister’s cue to show that she is working.”

Simon Peter Opolot Okwalinga said: My brother Chris Obore it’s only the Heavens that can tell what truly watoto church is and the deeper undergoings therein. In July 2002 a powerful Spiritual encounter revealed a lot about the dirt in that so called church. The Almighty is often not with where the majority human understanding lies… Please pray to Papa ELOIM, He shall reveal.

Emokori Nazur Etesot, “I second her. A team of my superiors from the former DOVCU project and staff from MGLSD that was meant to resettle children being kept in Child Care Institutions made interventions in several CCIs within Kampala, Jinja, Mbale, Fortportal, Kasese, Gulu, etc. The objective was to understand their source of funding, the well-being of the children (the feeding, accommodation and healthcare) Watoto never allowed us to access the children’s doms, files and didn’t allow us interact with the Children. CCIs with unclear sources of funding ie (The Minority Group) were to be recommended for closure. This left question marks. There is alot that happens inside there that needs to be investigated.”

Okello Lucima said, “Chris. Yes. Things of faith are very sensitive and elicit great passions. But I would not jump in with both feet as you seem to do, knowing what dark arts some churches and people of God have been guilty of recently. If there is suspicion, well and good, let them investigate. In the end, if Watoto is clean, the investigation will clear them of the suspicion. If it finds they broke any law, no one is above the law.”
