Bishop Kiganda in Kamuli
On Friday, Bishop Kiganda in company of some Kampala Pastors under there umbrella Uganda Pastors Platform arrived in Kamuli 130 Miles East of the Ugandan Capital Kampala. There were already hundreds of pastors who were waiting for him at a hotel. The major concern was how to get back The Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon Rebecca Kadaga to Parliament who happens to be representing Kamulias well in Parliament. The Speaker addressed the Pastors and over 10 groups of women.
The 50 Minutes address of Bishop Kiganda engulfed on how to save Uganda from the Gay tremor which has started eating Ugandan Schools and youth, a project believed to be funded by the gay community around the world. He unmasked the gay program and its underground movement to take over Uganda. The Born Again preacher lauded the Speaker for defending Uganda and that’s the reason he wants to have him back in Parliament.
Kiganda said there soon launching country wide crusades in support of anti-legislators and Parliamentary candidates and decampaigning people like Fox Odoi who are pro-gay rights.
The Speaker of Parliament said that she will be inviting Bishop Kiganda soon to discuss the future of Uganda amidst threats on moral ethics and values.
When Kadaga gave a moving speech in Canada and denounced gay in Uganda, she received a heroic welcome organized by Kiganda and his fellow pastors. Since then Kadaga’s star has never ceased to shine.
Pastors in the meeting expressed disappointment in the ex-Premier Rt. Hon John Patrick Amama Mbabazi for compromising and appearing manipulative at the time of the Anti-Gay Law. Mbabazi remarks of lack of quorum were interpreted differently yet so many laws have passed in Parliament without a needed quorum.
Controversial journalist Andrew Mwenda, Hon Fox Odoi and a few others shocked the Nation when they chose opt for a legal machinery to pull down the Anti-Gay Law that had been signed by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni amidst storms and hailstone from the Western World. Museveni was attacked by the Gay community while on official trip in United States and was blocked staying in 3 hotels according to social media reports. Several donors pulled out of Uganda at that time. This was a trying moment by the State as whether to please donors or voters who had gathered at Kololo Airstrip to celebrate the signing into law of the bill.
Analysts said, Uganda wouldn’t survive without donor aid and also NRM Government wouldn’t risk the people’s vote. It’s upon this ground that Uganda has lately shifted grounds for China, Russia and Arabs whose money doesn’t have gay strings attached.
Bishop Kiganda is widely seen as an extra ordinary figure amongst pastors many of which can’t face cameras and I’ll talk gay.
Kivumbi Earnest Benjamin a young politician while in Kamuli hailed Bishop Kiganda for his outstanding efforts in ensuring that Uganda remains a God fearing nation.
