Your mail: NRM behaves like the biblical Satan

According to the teaching of the Bible, Satan has the following characteristics: he is the king of death, Hebrews 2:14; he is the ruler of darkness, Ephesians 6:12; he is the deceiver, Revelations 20:10; he is the wicked one, Matthew 13:38; he is the tempter, 1 Thessalonians 3:5; he is a liar, John 8:44; he is a murderer, John 8:44; the enemy, Matthew 13:39, etc.

When you happen to be a keen follower of NRM, you can easily be tempted to believe that this party is Satan’s agent. From the time they took power 31 years ago, the NRM has repeatedly deceived Ugandans, made limitless false promises, and caused death of many innocent Ugandans.

They have done a lot of things in darkness without knowledge of parliament; they have tempted many Ugandans through bribery; many of their misplaced priorities have made them enemies of the people.

Therefore, many Bible readers are becoming inclined to believe that the NRM is knowingly or unknowingly becoming Satan’s agents.

Beware of Isaiah’s prophecy about women’s make-up

On Christmas day, nearly in all churches, Isaiah’s prophecy – Unto us a child is born, Prince of Peace ... etc – was read and preached.

Several other prophecies like the conflict in Syria (Isaiah 17) and Egypt (Isaiah 19) have all come to pass. Isaiah prophesied on more women than men (Isaiah 4) and it has also come to pass.

Today, I want to talk about his prophecy for make-up users who are using all sorts of imported chemicals. The long-term effect might be very devastating.

Isaiah 3:16-17 says: ‘The Lord says: The women of Zion are haughty, walking along with outstretched necks, flirting with their eyes, strutting along with swaying hips, with ornaments jingling on their ankles. Therefore, the Lord will bring sores on the heads of the women of Zion; the Lord will make their scalps bald.”

And Isaiah 3: 24 says: “Instead of fragrance there will be a stench; instead of a sash, a rope; instead of well-dressed hair, baldness; instead of fine clothing, sackcloth; instead of beauty, branding.”

Just like other prophecies, this one will also come to pass.

The long-term effects of scrubbing/bleaching of your skin (melanin) will be terrible in this hot sun. Your skin was made for the tropics. Your head is sweating all the time but you take long time to wash it because of artificial hair!

Don’t say I never warned you!

Has OWC deviated from core duties?

I would like to thank managers of Operation Wealth Creation for organizing and supporting the music industry.

However, it is common sense and knowledge that OWC is an initiative of President Museveni aimed at improving household incomes by providing support in the coordination of national agricultural advisory services at community level.

The OWC mission is clear: “Improvement of household incomes for poverty eradication, wealth creation and overall prosperity of Ugandans through facilitation of sustainable commercial agricultural production”.

The activities of OWC are being implemented under various ministries and agencies such as the ministry of Agriculture, ministry of Finance, Naads and National Agricultural Research Organization, among others.

The element of funding music shows in not mentioned anywhere in the operations and activities of OWC and Naads. Any common thinker would interpret the recent Kadongokamu music competition organized by OWC as a waste of taxpayers’ money. Musicians and footballers are regarded among the wealthiest in the world.

Police needs discipline

The unprofessionalism displayed by security personnel in Uganda is becoming increasingly disturbing. The officers are apparently unable to distinguish criminals from non-criminals.

I realized this on Christmas eve when the patrol police officers indiscriminately fired live bullets at a group of enthusiastic youths who were returning from a trade show in Arua municipality at about 1am.

As has always been their escape excuse, the operatives accused the group of causing disorder at the trade show. But even if we are to go by that statement, how judicious is it for a trained security officer to open fire at dozens of unarmed people?

Aged 16 years, Vincent Odraku lost his life in the shootout. What is intriguing is that after being hit by a ‘stray’ bullet, one of the deceased’s friends bravely tried to offer first aid by tying the injured part with a piece of cloth probably to mitigate blood loss, but they were rudely hit by an operative with a gun butt, leaving the victim to bleed to death.

I pray reckless security officers are held personally accountable for their misdemeanors if we are to see professionalism instilled in the institution. Odraku, may your soul rest in eternal peace!

No ‘Ifs’ in 2018!

Every man was designed with greatness within but what makes many of us to never reach the top is simply because we start every second, minute, hour, day, week, month and most probably a year with ‘If’ decisions.

Such decisions demotivate us because we feed our minds with negative thoughts. Statements such as ‘If I had time’ or ‘If I had money’ should never be part of our vocabulary. 

Substitute the word ‘If’ with ‘How’. Instead of saying If I had time, simply say, ‘how can I make or get more time or how best can I use the limited time I have.’

For every decision you make or any goal you set, only think of ‘how’ to make it come true. Trust me, when you program your mindset that way, life will start to be meaningful to you.

Do not just possess the interest of starting a business; start it and, above all, keep going forward as well as building confidence within yourself.
Happy 2018 to you all!
