Pentecostal Spiritual politics amidst the impending election of a new leader for the NFBPC: Bishop David Kiganda uses Mathew 19:9 to get a new wife amidst pressure from his congregation







Comment

As Apostle Alex Mitala's  term comes to end, some pastors  want Bishop David Kiganda to replace Apostle Alex Mitala as the new head of the National Fellowship of Born again Pentecostal Churches(NFBPC). These Pastors  want Bishop Kiganda to marry very fast because one of the requirement for heading this wing is that one must be married.

Marry or quit: Congregation conducts referendum on Pastor’s marriage.


Written by Burite Joseph    Monday, 18 February 2013 12:03   

Church-goers at Christianity Focus Church in the Kisenyi slum of Kampala yesterday conducted a mini-referendum on whether their Pastor should marry another wife.

Pastor David Kiganda separated with his wife of many years, Hadijja Nassejje, after catching her in bed with a “Chapati” Baker, one Mukwasi.

But after close to Eight years of living as a single man, his congregation feels enough is enough and have ordered him to marry again. They went ahead and conducted a vote on the issue.

Presided over by a Junior Pastor, one Isaac Mpawulo, the vote resulted in 96 voting in favor and only 6 voting against.

However, the Pastor is not allowed to choose his bride from the same Church.

“These people consider you their Father, you can’t marry among them,” said another Junior Pastor, one Ntale, adding that Kiganda is free to get a wife from anywhere else in Uganda and abroad.

To this, Pastor Kiganda responded that he is going to get a “Dinka”(a South Sudanese tribe) wife.

Pentecostal pastors have ordered fellow pastor, Pastor David Kiganda of ‘Christianity Focus Center’ to get married.

Pastor Kiganda has spent seven years without a woman and now he is required by fellow pastors to get married, and very quickly. The pastors, led by Pastor Isaac Mpawulo said that for some time, they have been requesting the pastor to get married and he kept on making empty promises to them. They also said they do not know who his ‘woman’ is.

Pastor Mpawulo said meetings were held to solve the problem of Pastor Kiganda who has an obligation to lead the people back to God. Pastor Kiganda separated from his wife, Hadijah Nassejje after finding her committing adultery. The meetings were first held by pastors from his church.

 Members of Pastor Kiganda's church celebrate Pastor Kiganda's announcement that he has got a new bride whom he will show the church on Sunday

Several reasons brought up as to why the pastor has to get married are many. One of them is that he has a church were most of the congregation is married so how is he going to guide them when he himself is not married? He is also being considered as the next leader of all pentecostal churches after the current leader, Alex Mitala leaves office.


Pastor Kiganda has promised to fulfill this requirement in no time at all.

Who is Pastor Kiganda?

Until last Tuesday, David Kiganda was just one of the numerous pastors in Kampala when newspapers carried the proceedings and confessions of a public divorce intention after an alleged adulterous affair that involved the pastor’s wife.

About twenty years ago, David Kiganda Isa was a very simple man who struggled hard to earn a living.

Kiganda was born on August 17 1964, to Late Richard Kalido Ssemaganda and Mrs, Restytutah Nampijja Ssemaganda in Nyendo, Masaka District. He has been married for the last 19 years to Miriam Hadijah Nassejje Kiganda (a former Muslim). They have with five children.

According to his website www.christianityfocuscentre.org, David Kiganda got born-again in July 1987, under the preaching efforts and leadership of the Late Apostle Deogracious John Balabyekkubo and Dr. Joseph Sserwadda both then pastors of Victory Christian Centre, Kibuye Kampala.

After serving in his mother church for some years and attending various Bible training programs, conferences and seminars, he started the Christianity Focus Ministries in 1990 with a vision of planting and empowering churches, advocating and agitating for the five-fold ministries to take roots in the church as it is written in the Bible book of Ephesians 4:12.

In an interview with the Sunday Vision in August, Kiganda confessed to have searched for a long time for a religion that could touch him.

Raised a Catholic, he considered venturing into Islam and the Protestant church.
Every evening, my friends and I would go to Nakivubo and and listen to Christians and Muslims debating, Kiganda said.

Every evening our group would get saved to excite the pastors, because it would look embarrassing for them to preach for hours and fail to get anyone saved, he said. (Alive, August 5, 2006)

His church in mengo Kisenyi has at attendance of over 3,000 faithfuls.


Some achievements as listed on the church’s website:
Senior Pastor for Christianity Focus Centre, located at Mengo Kisenyi
lFounder and Managing Director of Christianity Focus Grammer School at Budaali Namayumba, Wakiso District

lDirector, Seroma Christian High School in Mukono, Kyetume
lVice President of Liberty Ministry Fellowship Inc. USA/Uganda an international discipling and ordaining ministry.

July 2005 he was elected District Chairman Overseer of the entire, NFBAPC-U, Kampala District .

lHe was also known for the Operation Clean the House, a Uganda screening effort in the church to fight out all false teachings and false prophets and also to create awareness of the same among the born- again.

THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA
IN THE HIGH COURT OF UGANDA AT KAMPALA
DIVORCE CAUSE NO. 42 OF 2011
BISHOP DAVID KIGANDA ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: PETITIONER
VERSUS
HADIJA NASEJJE KIGANDA :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: RESPONDENT

BEFORE HON. JUSTICE B. KAINAMUA

Judgment

Bishop David Kiganda (herein after referred to as the Petitioner) and Hadija Nasejje Kiganda (hereafter referred to as the Respondent) were legally married at Victory Christian Center Ndeeba on 27th October 1991. Prior to the Solemnisation of the marriage the couple had lived in cohabitation.  Out of the cohabitation and the marriage they produced five children namely:-

1.     Kiganda Martin Ssemwonga aged 24 years
2.     Kiganda Baker Wamala aged 22 years
3.     Kisakye Phillip Kiganda aged  20 years
4.     Kiwunulo Deborah aged 18 years
5.     Kiganda Joshua Yotulwanira aged 13 years
6.      
The Petitioner brings this petition for the following orders:-
a.     An order for dissolution of the said marriage
b.     A Decree Nisi be issued against the Respondent
c.      The Petitioner be granted custody of the minor child who is already in his custody since 2006.
d.     Consequential order relating to the matrimonial property
e.      Costs of the petition
The Petitioner raised two grounds for the petition namely adultery, cruelty and desertion.


The hearing of the petition proceeded ex-part after Court satisfied its self that the Respondent had been served with the petition and she did not file an answer to the petition-Order 9 rule 10 CPR

The Petitioner’s case rested on the evidence of four witnesses, the Petitioner, his Best man at the wedding, Israel Sekanjako (PW2), Moses Kabanda (PW3) and his Personal Assistant Charles Kasule (PW4).


It was the Petitioners testimony that he got married to the Respondent Hadija Nasejje on the 27th day of October 1991 at Victory Christian Center Church, Ndeeba. They had previously cohabited for some time.
During their cohabitation and after the wedding they produced five children named earlier in this Judgment.


The Petitioner testified that around 2006 the couple experienced problems in their marriage when the Respondent got involved in an adulterous affair with one Mukwasi Hussein and others. The Respondent is alleged to have confessed the act in church. In proof of this, the Petitioner tendered in evidence an Agreement for Separation signed by the Respondent on 29th September 2006 wherein under paragraph 11 she admitted adultery with diverse men including one Hussein Mukwasi. The agreement was admitted in evidence as EXP 1.

One Moses Kasanda (PW3) testified to the effect that he is a member of the Petitioner’s church-Christian Focus Center Mengo Kisenyi-where the Respondent was also a preacher.


He further stated that he was a witness to the agreement signed by the Respondent (EXP 1) wherein she admitted adultery. He concluded his testimony by confirming that since the making of the agreement above, the Respondent has not returned to the home of the Petitioner.


The Petitioner also called Isreal Sekanjanko (PW2) who testified that he was the Best Man at the Petitioner and Respondent’s wedding. He tendered in the wedding photograph (EXP2). He further testified that the Respondent though a Moslem initially, had converted to Christianity and was a well known preacher and used to baptize people.


One Kasule Charles was called as PW4 and testified that he was the Petitioner’s Personal Assistant. He testified that while still in school he used to spend the holidays at the couple’s home, knew the children of the couple very well and has since two years back been resident at the home of the Petitioner. He confirmed that the Respondent has not been at the home since 2006.

At the hearing of the petition, one issue was identified for determination namely:- whether the Petitioner is entitled to the reliefs sought in the petition.


In a nutshell these are:- Dissolution of the marriage between the parties and grant of custody of the minor child to the Petitioner.
Adultery has been defined as consensual sexual intercourse during the existence of a marriage between a married person and a person of the opposite sex not being the husband or wife of that married person. Adultery may be proved by either direct or circumstantial evidence. As observed by Justice Ntabgoba in George Nyakairu Vs Rose Nyakairu [1979] HCB 261 
“in allegations of adultery it is not necessary to prove direct act of adultery for the fact was almost always to be inferred from the circumstances as a necessary conclusion since it is indeed true that parties were ever surprised in the act of adultery”.                
 Adultery must be proved to the satisfaction of the Court (see Habyarimana Vs Habyarimana (1980) HCB 139) but the Court can conclude after considering the facts and circumstances pleaded before it that an adulterous sexual intercourse took place.  


The Petitioner testified that he has not been living with the Respondent since September 2006. He stated that the reason for the separation was because the Respondent got into an affair with another man one Hussein Mukwasi which affair the Respondent admitted in the presence of others. (See EXP 1). This fact was collaborated by Moses Kabanda (PW3) who stated that he was present at the gathering when the Respondent apologized before people including elders and pastors. He further stated that he was a witness to the Agreement for Separation which the Respondent signed.


Based on the direct and circumstantial evidence before Court, i am satisfied that the Respondent did commit acts of adultery on diverse occasions with other men but more especially one Hussein Mukwasi.
I hold therefore that the Petitioner has discharged the burden of proving that the Respondent did engage in the acts of adultery with diverse men including one Hussein Mukwasi.


The Petitioner sought custody for Kiganda Joshua Yatulwanira, the only remaining minor child from the marriage. The paramount principle in cases of custody is the welfare of the child. The child has been in the custody of the Petitioner since 2006 when the couple separated. There is no compelling reason why this arrangement should be interfered with by Court. Accordingly the Petitioner will retain the custody of the child.


The Petitioner seeks no costs, so be it.

In conclusion Court makes the following orders:-
1.     A Decree nisi is hereby issued for the dissolution of the marriage between the Petitioner and the Respondent
2.     The Petitioner is granted custody of the child Kiganda Joshua Yatulwanira
3.     There is no order as to costs.
