    House of Prayer Ministries (HPM) Makerere – Kikoni senior Pastor, Aloysius Bugingo has protested the decision of the head of the family Division of the High Court Justice Joseph Murangira to appoint Bishop Joshua to mediate his divorce case against his first wife Pastor Teddy Naluswa.

    Through his lawyer, Ronald Ruhinda of Ruhinda Advocates and Solicitors to Katende Ssempebwa and Company Advocates lawyers to Naluswa, Bugingo finds Bishop Lwere not fit and proper a person to conduct mediation with the defendant.

    “Whereas a mediator must be neutral and impartial, your proposed mediator is an interested party in the above matter and is therefore already prejudiced and biased. On 16/July 2019, your proposed mediator together with a one Mr Simon Emiau and Mr Daniel Wanddimba made a press release wherein they unfairly maligned the petitioner and publicly stated that the above matter was filed in Court against their religious beliefs and that they do not recognize his Ministry” Ruhinda noted.

    He further elaborated that Lwere, the Secretary General of the National Fellowship of Born Again Pentecostal Churches of Uganda has been previously appearing on several media platforms and made similar utterances against the person of his client which made him more unbefitting, inept and unable to perform the said role.

    Lawyers revealed that Bishop Lwere’s presence was the reason they refused to attend the previous mediations scheduled by Court as guided by Justice Murangira the trial Judge.

    “We are accordingly unable to attend your proposed mediation for the above reasons and we are instead preparing for the hearing of the above matter that is scheduled for 1st June 2021” he added.

    When contacted, Counsel Alex Mumbe, one of the lawyers representing Naluswa also protested Bugingo’s lawyers decision to jump out of the mediation because of Bishop Lwere when they were present in Court when Justice Murangira appointed him.

    “For us we don’t have any problem with Bishop Lwere being a mediator in the said matter but if the other party has uncomfort with him, we shall inform the Court. But the mediator has to write his report and inform the Judge what exactly happens to guide him when he is making his decision,” Mumbe said.

    He also is ready to battle with Bugingo in the main suit. Recently Bugingo told his followers that even if God comes back on earth, he will never go back to Naluswa.

    In 2019, Bugingo petitioned the Kajjansi Chief Magistrates Court seeking for dissolving his marriage with Naluswa claiming that she disrespected him.

    However, the magistrate forwarded the matter to the High Court because the properties which were supposed to be shared by parties when marriage is dissolved were above Shs50m.

    In her defense, Naluswa protested the dissolution of her marriage with Bugingo, claiming that the disagreement they developed could be resolved amicably.

    Naluswa, the senior pastor at Word of Salvation Ministries International got married to Bugingo in 2003 at the Victory Christian Centre Ndeeba-Kampala.

    M7 Urges Ugandans To Study European History



    President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has urged Ugandans to study European history in order to gain relevant knowledge to develop the country.

    Museveni, who was represented by Vice President Jessica Alupo, made the statement at a symposium to address the role of universities in responding to Africa’s problems and development needs. The symposium was held on March 30th at Makerere University.

    Museveni told Ugandans to study European history and get exposed to the world.

    “Have seen some people saying what is the use of studying European History. It is very important to study European History cause when you know about the world, it is like a laboratory. You can know how the world is and how society evolves,” he said.

    Museveni said Africans should borrow good ideas from the Europeans and have them implemented in their own countries.

    He also expressed his dismay with colonial influence that is washing away the African culture and values. He said Africans are buying ‘acids’ to bleach themselves due to colonial influence.

    Museveni further said that University education must help Africas regain their confidence.

    “The education system or university education must put confidence back into the African people,” he said.

    The president also urged universities to incorporate integration in the scope of what they teach to students. He said universities should not teach economics without integration or political science without regional integration.

    Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, Makerere University’s vice chancellor urged the government to prioritise postgraduate studies, saying that these help countries transform faster.

    “Economies of countries are transformed much faster if you have a mass of PhD and masters’ graduates,” he said.

    According to Nawangwe, postgraduate students are able to conduct research that leads to national transformation.

    Makerere University will in the next academic year cut the number of undergraduate students to create space for postgraduate and PhD students.

    The institution has also called upon government to increase sponsorship slots for postgraduate students. This is aimed at turning Makerere University into a research led institution.
