Outspoken critic of corruption in Born-Again churches in Uganda pastor Solomon Male has once again accused fellow pastors of worshiping President Yoweri Museveni. Male claims that the pastors seek their safety and existence from Museveni.
“Pentecostal pastors are now no longer looking to God for solutions, they are looking to a human god and that is called President Museveni,” Pastor Solomon Male said.
He added, “As long as Museveni still lives, pastors can no longer seek God for their problems.”
Male further stated that even when Museveni goes to church for prayers, the pastors forget to preach and instead table their development plans.
On the issue of churches opposing the proposal from the Ethics Minister Father Simon Lokodo that intends to see all Born-Again pastors obtain theological training, Male said theology does not guarantee righteousness amongst individuals before citing that the Catholic Church has learned clergies but they have continuously been accused of different crimes.
According to Male, the ministry should form a commission that can oversee the dirty games and practices done in all religious institutions.
Male’s reactions come after Museveni on Monday had a meeting with Born-Again pastors and evangelists at Lugogo Cricket Oval where they pledged their support for the president come 2021 general elections.
The President also promised to engage them before the said proposals are tabled. Museveni also extended a ‘golden handshake’ that will support their church associations.
