A self-professed god, Omukama Ruganga Owobusobozi Bisaka, head on the cult group "Faith and Unity," was last Tuesday celebrating his 83rd birthday in Kagadi Kibaale district where in attendance was president Museveni as Chief guest.


Addressing the congregation comprising thousands of barefooted members dressed in white tunics, Museveni hailed the works of the cult leader, and asked them to maintain the spirit of unity as a prerequisite for development.


“Your motto of 'Okwahukana kuhoireho' (separation is over) is good for unity of people. Omukulu Bisaka must have derived the motto from the problems of division Uganda suffered years ago. I thank the elder Bisaka for training you to maintain self-sufficiency.”


The development however has not gone well with Christian faith leaders.


Pastor Abed Bwanika of the Christian Witness Church in Kampala accused the president of "associating with people who blaspheme God" and warned that he would face the same wrath like Muammar Gaddafi who ridiculed the Holy Bible."


Bwanika, who is also President General of the People's Development Party, said it was unacceptable for the president of Uganda to hang around someone who called himself God.


"It was unfortunate that our president was not only in attendance but he reciprocated by giving (Bisaka) a car and large sums of money," noted Bwanika.


Museveni at the event made a donation of Shs 40m, a Pajero and handed over cash of Shs 20m to facilitate the celebrations of the elder’s birthday and commissioning of his house. He said that the balance of Shs 20m would be delivered later.


"Uganda is a God-fearing nation and Museveni, as the Fountain of Honour should have desisted from such a blasphemous occasion," added Bwanika.


By letting Bisaka call himself god in his face, Bwanika said, Museveni was not doing the right thing.


Who is Owobusobozi?
Owobusobozi Bisaka claims to have supernatural powers to heal all kind of illnesses and says he is able to unite people from around the world.


Born in 1930 at Kitoma, Kibizi in Kibaale district, Bisaka says that throughout his life, he had wanted to be a Priest but that this did not come to pass. 


The former Grade III teacher claims that the voice of God of Hosts (the Creator) appeared to him and urged him to start saving people and preaching about oneness.


That is how he broke away from the Catholic religion and its bible teachings.


He wrote his own book, which he says is the basis of the entire 'oneness faith'. Owobusobozi Bisaka claims that bible teachings bring about divisions, which he says are manifested by the so many religions, emanating from within the same bible.


The National Curriculum Development Center gave the Faith of Unity cult a pre-condition of their book being endorsed by the President before they can approve it for use in the Schools.



While responding to the request of the elder Bisaka to endorse his book last week, (The book of God), President Museveni said that he would read it and give his stand within two months.


Kabale cult boss slams Bible

WESTERN religion is being used to colonise Africa, Owobusobozi Desteo Bisaka, a cult leader in Uganda’s south-western district of Kibaale, has said.


How can we boast of independence when we still cherish religions brought by foreigners? We are now shunning our indigenous religions, considering them to be Satanic, Bisaka said.


He said Africans must cherish religions that arose from their own cultures, as it was before the colonial era.


He made the remarks on Saturday at Kagadi Freedom Square at a function to thank the National Resistance Movement Government for respecting freedom of worship in the country.


He added that Africans have a long way to go in understanding that God is not white-skinned, and that it is not only white people who are holy.


Bisaka and his believers, clad in white clothes, also thanked the Government for freedom of speech and association.
We must thank President (Yoweri) Museveni and his government for the favourable environment and laws in the country,  Bisaka said.


He founded his Faith of Unity church, in the early 1980s. Bisaka is the son of a leading Roman Catholic catechist, Petero Byombi.


Born in 1930 at Kitoma



“Kibizi in Kibaale district, Bisaka set his heart on being a Catholic priest in his youth. But this did not come to pass. The former Grade III teacher claims he heard a voice from God urging him to preach ‘’oneness’’.


He tuned his back on the Roman Catholic Church and the Bible. He wrote his own book, the basis of the faith. Bisaka claims the Bible brings about division, noting the numerous religions that use the holy book.


Bisaka’s disciples, led by the Abakwenda(his prophets), thanked him for initiating the church.


They gave him a car valued at sh106m.
The function drew thousands of Bisaka followers from within Uganda and Canada.

He Claims To Be The Power Of God

Down town, was last Saturday painted white as the followers of Owobusobozi Bisaka, (the Almighty Bisaka), entered the city for what they called a national ceremony to pray for peace in the country at Nakivubo Stadium.

Clad in white gowns, the abaikiriza (believers) as the sect is called, trekked to Nakivubo in thousands from Bisaka’s Palace in Nansana, where they had spent the night.

Traffic and economic activities around Kampala-Hoima road and areas surrounding the old Taxi Park were brought to a standstill, as people stood on rooftops, on top of cars to witness the white invasion onto the city.

After hours of waiting, Owobusobozi, 78, (a Runyoro word for the only one with authority) and his wife arrived at around 11:00am in a gray Mitsubishi Pajero escorted by a fleet of six more vehicles to a thrilling welcome from his slogan chanting followers.
˜Kwahukana Kuhoireho  Kwahukana Kuhoireho (disunity has ended) they shouted. Bisaka’s followers competed to lay their clothes on the ground for him to walk on.

The followers of the self-styled father of unity, most of who came from as far as Kisoro, Rwanda, Rakai, Kibaale (where the headquarters of the sect are found), Kasese, Masindi, Rukungiri, and Kampala had started flocking the stadium by 8:00am.

No sooner had Bisaka settled down than his Bakwenda (cult zone heads) welcomed the founder and leader of the 23-year-old Faith of Unity, with cash gifts of over sh10m, before the rest of the faithfuls could make their personal thanksgiving in this seemingly hierarchical sect.

But the moment of the day was to come when later, the Owobusobozi Bisaka, a man not known to most Ugandans rose up from his seat, to greet his followers. Hands of his followers dug in their pockets for money to thank and acquire blessings from their god.
It is difficult to fathom, how a staunch Catholic, who once worked for Hoima Diocese and composed songs for the Catholic faith, had now formed his own cult called Abaikiriza.

Yes. Hard to believe that Desteo Bisaka as he was know until 1980, the son of a leading catholic catechist, Petero Byombi could be here commanding such a big anti-Catholicism following.

Born in 1930 at Kitoma, Kibizi in Kibaale district, Bisaka says that throughout his life, he had wanted to be a priest, but this did not come to pass.

The former Grade III teacher claims that the voice of God of Hosts (the Creator) appeared to him and urged him to start saving people and preaching about oneness.
He broke away from the Catholic faith and wrote his own book, which he says is the basis of the entire oneness faith.

Owobusobozi Bisaka claims that the Bible teachings bring about divisions, which he says is manifested by the so many religions that have sprang from the Bible.
He further says that the Bible bears no signature like his book, The Book of God, of the Age of Oneness because its writers knew that the words within them were not right.

This is according to his book, where he says that in God, there are several major spirits ” The lord God of Hosts, The Lord God of the Holiness of God and The Lord God of the Power of God ” Omukama Ruhanga Owobusobozi, Bisaka.
He has faced criticism from Christians, but the soft-spoken Bisaka, seems to be gathering more followers by the day.

Bisaka claims that he has healing powers and powers of saving people from satan, the enemy, and the diseases. He says that the second, 12th and 22nd days (days when his cult holds prayers) of very month are God Days set for miracles, but that salvation is daily.

Bisaka is married with children, whom he calls abenda yo Obusobozi (children from the body of that who has authority over everything.)
Although he claims that his faith is an African indigenous one, Bisaka does not believe in medicine used by the traditional healers, instead encouraging the use of his holy water.

People have expressed concern about the number of illiterate people who he has manipulated and deceived to give the little they have, to get blessings.
At the end of last year, there were media reports that Bisaka’s followers were planning to buy him an aeroplane. Bisaka has just finished building a multi-million Itambiro (house of worship) complex at his home in Kapyemi, Kibaale.

 At 82, cult leader marries 29-year-old woman

There was an air filled with excitement Wednesday evening as the founder of the Faith of Unity cult, Owobusobozi Bisaka, married a 29-year-old woman in a traditional ceremony.

Owobusobozi, aged 82 was introduced to Teopista Musasizi’s family of the late Petero Kyakurugaha of Buyaga village in Kyenzige sub-county in Kibaale district.

The organizers of the function did not want it to be made public, but New Vision online was there and followed all the events as they unfolded.

At around 5.30pm, Bisaka’s entourage arrived at Kyakurugaha’s home and was welcomed by a group of Bakwenda [apostles] who ushered them into a tent.

A few minutes later, women emerged from the house as they danced and sat on a mat in front of Bisaka. One elderly woman from Bisaka’s entourage then picked Musasizi from the group and gave her a flower.
Musasizi then placed a white cloth on Bisaka amidst jubilations and chants of praise. Bisaka, clad in a white Kanzu and a sweater, remained seated throughout function, unlike other usual introduction ceremonies, where the bridegroom moves around searching for the bride.

During the function, the Bakwenda thanked Bisaka for choosing a wife from that family.
“Our lord, you have blessed this family by marrying from it and we are very happy,” one of the them said, while kneeling before Bisaka.
The function went on till 11.00pm. 

Unlike other cultural marriage functions in Bunyoro, where the groom finds the bride at her parents’ home, Bisaka came with Musasizi.

Originally, Bisaka was married to one wife, but upon her death in 2009, he married two more women. Unfortunately, one of them died shortly into the union.

Musasizi becomes his fourth wife. Bisaka preaches that men should marry many wives to avoid adultery.
The Faith of Unity cult, which started in 1980, has over one million followers in Uganda, Rwanda, Congo and Southern Sudan.
