How does one attain the title "pastor"? Is it like everything else in Uganda...

Wake up one morning and you're donning a police or army uniform with the rank of ASP or Colonel simply because. Until we sort ourselves up from the top more scandals of this nature are prone to increase.

In other words, it is better to be coned by a Mufele on William Street, than a marauding pastor like Kakande, Bujingo, Buyingo, Mayanja, Murungi, Imelda, etc. of this country who are coning in the name of Jesus.

These guys and girls, some are in State House, are building their financial empires, riding the desperation of unsuspecting Ugandans

Uganda is rotten from the top down with a president who is not accountable to anybody. he treats Uganda as his family farm. m7 is the problem .

When he talks peace I laugh. How can a country be at peace when it has a dictator who kills and does not allow differing voices to be heard! m7 has to go!

It had to be a woman, they are too gullible to things that are said to be associated with God, it is very hard to hear that a man fell for lies coming from these guys who call themselves the might men of God and not the men of the mighty God.
