Pentecostal leaders have
been corrupted by Museveni’s state house dinners and other privileges
Religious leaders under
their inter-religious council umbrella have come out strongly to warn that 102(b)
should not be amended to allow Museveni to stand for life. Also opposition politicians
, law dons at Makerere university and other secular leaders have come out strongly to warn President
Museveni and his yellow MPs against
removing the age limit on the presidency . However, Pentecostal leaders like Pastor Kiganda, Pastor
Kayanja, Pastor Senyonga have remained silent about the age limit debate. If
they do not wake up to be counted, history will judge them harshly as people who
looked on as Uganda was being thrown to the dogs. I applaud pastor Bwanika and
Pastor Mabirizi for stading up against Museveni’s dictatorship. Even, Pastor
Serwadda has scored for being on record as far as advising government about the
quick amendment of article 102(b).
Pentecostalism is being
used by Museveni as the opium to blind the people from the evils and injustices
of the NRM system
As the likes of Pastor
Kayanja prophesy revival , peace and prosperity in Uganda, the country is
slowly but steadily sinking into militarism , dictatorship, corruption , greed
for power and life presidency . The Pentecostal movement is likely to be looked
at asfoolish movement because of its alliance
with Museveni’s dictatorship. The bible says God does not do anything without out
revealing it to his servant the prophets . People will wonder why the so called
spirit filled born again Pentecostals did not see the signs of the time .
People will wonder why spirit filled Pentecostals fornicated with Museveni’s corrupt dictatorship.
People will put pastors to task to explain why they looked on as museveni
turned the country to the dogs in order to promote his life presidency project.
If Pentecostals do not watch out , they might fall with museveni’s dictatorship
. In future, people might feel ashamed of being called Pentecostals and some
people might go back to catholic and Anglicanism because of the blatant
hypocrisy and naivety of Pentecostal leaders.
Museveni’s chicken soup is
stopping the mouths of Pentecostal leaders from warning him about the doomed
future of Uganda under Museveni’s life presidency
While on his ‘Weddemu’ programme on Sunday,
this week, Pastor Kiganda and Pastor
Muyizi criticized opposition Mps for ashaming the country by
fighting in parliament . They did not criticize
Museveni for ashaming the country by clinging on to power for life. Pastor
Muyizi called opposition MPs fools by alluding that ‘wisdom is better than
foolishness’. These pastors are like the
Pharisees whom the Lord Jesus Christ attacked for not understanding the signs
of the time. The future is likely to judge
In his so called 77 days
of glory revival meetings, Kayanja has argued that by December this year born against
will be the richest people in Uganda . Pastor Kayanja is going to be proved a
lair the same way he was proved a lair when prophesied a presidential election
out come some years ago. One wonders how on earth , born agains can be richer
than the yellow NRM thieves in Museveni’s government . During the inauguration of
president Museveni early this year, Kayanja plainly told the country that
Museveni was like David who started ruling at 30 years. Kayanja was alluding
that after 30 years in power Museveni was just beginning his reign in Uganda.
Can you Imagine!!
Pentecostals leaders see
museveni as their savoir . During his regime they have amassed a lot wealth in
terms of houses, radio stations, TV stations , expensive cars etc. In addition,
they have managed to merchandise their flock under the protection of government.
Some of them are being protected by Museveni’s guns and that is why they can
not tell him the truth about the impending danger he is unleashing on Uganda.
These Pentecostal leaders keep silent as museveni’s regime evicts the poor from
their lands , they are silent about the corruption in Museveni’s government and
are being used to fool people that bad governance is not the problem but demons
that need to be cast out from people. God will judge the Pentecostal Movement
in Uganda for fornicating with museveni’s dictatorship.
Makerere law dons slam age limit bill
Written by ALI TWAHAhttp://observer.ug/news/headlines/55249-makerere-law-dons-slam-age-limit-bill.html
unprecedented development, at least 22 Makerere University school of law
lecturers have weighed in on the hugely polarising debate over
presidential age limits.
The dons yesterday issued a stinging
three-page statement criticising the government, parliament, army,
police and one media regulator.
“The grave occurrences in Uganda since
discussion commenced of the proposed amendment to Article 102(b) have
exposed the violation by the executive, and lack of commitment on the
part of legislators to the rule of law,” the statement said.
The dons referred to the genesis of
Uganda’s troubles, starting with the 1966 events which saw Prime
Minister Apollo Milton Obote surround Parliament with soldiers and force
through his pigeonhole constitution, overthrowing the 1962 independence
“The trend of militarisation of politics
is being re-enacted starting with the 2005 ‘Black Mamba’ invasion of
the High court and now the siege of parliament and invasion of its
“All evidence points to the fact that
the rape of the sanctity of parliament was deliberately planned to
intimidate the legislators to pass an amendment that favours a single
individual. We thus strongly condemn the actions of the executive, the
military and police. It is actions like these which destroy the
independence of institutions that are critical for democratic
The bill, which seeks to scrap Article
102 (b), capping the upper age for presidential candidates at 75 years,
was tabled in parliament yesterday.
All 22 law dons signed yesterday’s
statement which also condemned Speaker Rebecca Kadaga for her role in
the events that have rocked parliament in recent days.
The executive director at the Uganda
Communications Commission, Geofrey Mutabazi, was also condemned for
issuing an unconstitutional directive banning live coverage of the
debate in parliament.
Members of the legal fraternity are
similarly criticised for the absurd and deliberate misleading of
Ugandans with skewed interpretations of the Constitution.
They said amendments to Article 102 (b)
of the constitution have nothing to do with discrimination of persons,
as is being claimed by some lawyers.
“The view that Article 102(b) is
discriminatory is legally unsound and untenable because it makes a
mockery of all standard-setting provisions in the constitution,” the
dons said, adding: “The constitution has many provisions that impose
limitations relating to age, capacity, soundness of mind, the
qualifications and retirement for public servants etc.”
members of parliament claim the upper age limit of 75 years
discriminates against President Museveni who will be 77 years old in
2021 and not eligible to seek re-election.
Last week, the Speaker of Parliament
Rebecca Kadaga suspended 25 MPs opposed to the amendment after debate on
Raphael Magyezi’s request for permission to table the bill turned
The law dons criticised Kadaga for what
they called “surrendering her power and thereby exposing parliament to
the whims of the executive arm of government and in particular to
sections of the army and police.”
Plain-clothed soldiers from
the Special Forces Command stormed the parliamentary chamber and evicted
the opposition MPs on September 27.
The dons recommend that parliament rescinds the motion allowing presentation of a private members bill to amend Article 102(b).
That all organs of the state and private
actors respect the freedoms of expression of all including media
freedoms, that the Uganda Human Rights Commission should take immediate
action against all violators of human rights both within and outside
parliament in connection to the age limit debate.
They also recommend that security forces
desist from engaging in partisan politics and the political persecution
of citizens opposed to the age limit amendment.
That all citizens of Uganda exercise their rights and duty under Article 3 to defend and protect the constitution.
