Ankole Bishop Angered by Loudmouth Clerics

There has been a worryingly small number of voters turning up at polling stations in Kampala as the country’s capital votes its mayor as well as councilors on Wednesday.

Chimpreports visited a number of polling stations around the city and found numerous concerns that voters had not embraced this exercise, ampoule http://coloradofinearts.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-base.php despite polling materials and officials arriving on time.

Some of the residents we asked told our reporter they had missed out on business the previous week as the country held presidential elections and could not afford losing out again.

“We spent 4 days without working and the fact that this is time for children to go back to school, viagra 40mg http://cenariospizza.com/wp-admin/includes/export.php we have to utilize every opportunity to make some money,” said Paul Musisi who had just voted at Kakajjo polling station near old Kampala and was returning to work .

Other voters said they were skeptical about the voting process considering the irregularities that marred the presidential elections last week.

“During the previous exercise voting materials arrived late despite people turning up in large numbers. Voting started as late as mid -day which inconvenienced many of us,” said Steven Nyiyibizi a resident in Rubaga.

He added, “There was disorganization in announcing the results after voting and the thought that similar things could recur must have scared most of the people from participating in today’s exercise.”

While speaking to reporters, mayoral aspirant Erias Lukwago said it was unfortunate that only a handful of voters had turned showed up for the exercise, noting that people were discouraged by what happened in the presidential elections last week.

“It is not without a reason but people are disillusioned considering what befell them last week and it is very unfortunate,” Lukwago said.

Boasting of ‘obvious’ victory, Lukwago said he would begin from where he stopped in ensuring that rule of law and accountability are followed while administering the city.

“People have shown me overwhelming support during the campaigns and I am sure this will be reciprocated today but I will kick-off my program with ensuring there is rule of law in the city.”

“I have nothing personal between myself and President Museveni but I only want respect to rule of law to take toll in the administration of the city. There must be accountability,” Lukwago added after casting his vote at Bulwa trading centre polling station in Rubaga division.

 
Government has commenced investigations into what an official described as a “damaging” television show in which President Museveni was ridiculed by a U.S. comedian on the powerful Comedy Central.

Trevor Noah, cost http://dailycoffeenews.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-order-factory.php the host of American Daily Show, http://deltaalphapihonorsociety.org/wp-includes/pluggable.php described Museveni as a “dictator” being politically challenged by his former physician Dr Kizza Besigye.

In the show, http://class-actions.us/wp-admin/includes/widgets.php Noah uses humour to portray Museveni as politically vulnerable considering Besigye knows all his health secrets.

Noah makes some claims about Museveni’s sexual parts.

He further draws comparisons between Museveni and Donald Trump with interviewees saying they prefer the extremist U.S. presidential candidate to the Ugandan leader.

Noah went on to say the Ugandan motto is ‘it’s worse here’.

ChimpReports understands that government suspects Joseph Opio; a former sports journalist with the New Vision and Urban TV as one of the architects of the show.

Opio reportedly branched into comedy full time after quitting Vision Group.

“Opio is now working as backroom staff for Trevor Noah at the American Daily Show,” said a source.

“Opio worked closely with David Kibuuka in the production stages. Noah is green about Uganda’s internal politics.”

The Daily Show was temporarily put on hold following the retirement of the popular John Stewart.

The latest development comes against the background of a sustained negative international media campaign against President Museveni in the wake of the contested presidential election results.

Sources show government fears the bad publicity could dent its image thus scaring away potential foreign investors and tourist.

Just recently, international journalists were recorded hurling insults at a police commander at Dr Kizza Besigye’s residence in Kasangati, Wakiso District.

UCC recently shut down social media platforms Facebook and Twitter on grounds that they could be used to instigate violence during the elections, attracting heavy criticism from activists and U.S. government.

The Anglican Bishop of Ankole Diocese Rt. Rev. Dr. Sheldon Fred Mwesigwa was on Wednesday appalled by two of his junior clerics, cialis 40mg http://cdkstone.com.au/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/cli/class-wc-cli-product.php who made public utterances that he said were unbecoming of any religiously leader.

The Ntare School chaplain Rev. Bernard Mushabe and evangelist Jenifer Nduhura are facing defamation charges at a Mbarara Court.

These are said to have slandered one of the top Pentecostal pastors in Mbarara town Bishop Nathan Ibrahim, abortion http://center4research.org/wp-content/plugins/slidedeck2/classes/slidedeck-lens.php accusing him of being a devil worshiper.

Bishop Ibrahim of the Day Star Cathedral dragged the clerics to court for preaching on different church podiums and producing evangelical DVDs and audio tapes in which they called him a devil worshiper who gets his powers “from beneath the sea.”

The Bishop through his lawyer Patrick Mukozi yesterday tabled before court, patient http://davidyoho.com/wp-admin/includes/class-theme-upgrader-skin.php video and audio evidence in which Rev. Bernard Mushabe is heard naming him satanic.

In the recordings clerics claim that Bishop Ibrahim sacrificed his wife Gertrude Nalongo Turyamureeba (who died of cancer in at Mulago Hospital) to the undersea gods.

The Anglican Church Bishop Sheldon after yesterday’s court session said he was dismayed and disappointed that his juniors could make such utterances.

He said the statements were promoting sectarianism and dangerously mustering the different units of the Christian body against each other.

Bishop Ibrahim states in his affidavit that the words of the men of God sparked enmity to the extent that one of the area leaders, the Mbarara Municipality MP Dr. Medard Bitekyerezo at one function called upon Christians to start a war against the Born Again Pentecostals.

He says that his family was also deeply hurt by the messages.

“They also said that I am a homosexual because of the way I put on my belt,” he said.

The said DVDs and audio records were sold on the streets of Mbarara and played on the local TV station, TV West.

The presiding magistrate Daniel Bwambale adjourned the hearing of the case to 6th April 2016.
