Twitter users know that the Twitter streets are slippery, never forget, and if you tweet recklessly, you are more likely to get a clap back that might make you want to take a break from the streets in order to heal from the clap back.
Last night, Makerere Community Church Pastor Martin Ssempa used his official Twitter page and asked what New Vision CEO Robert Kabushenga has donated to the National Taskforce that is receiving donations for the COVID-19 response.
“Apart from collecting from other CEOs, has anyone on Ugandan Twitter seen what Robert Kabushenga has donated to the COVID-19 fund either as New Vision or as an individual donor? I am going over the list and can’t seem to see his contribution,” Ssempa tweeted, wondering whether Kabushenga kept his donation secret?
Pastor Ssempa based his question on the fact that the Kabushenga-led Vision Group makes billions in profits annually, but he has gone through the list of donations and found none from either Vision Group as a whole, or from its CEO Robert Kabushenga as an individual.
The tweet reached the intended audience of Robert Kabushenga in a few hours and the Vision Group CEO’s reply is one you can say is fire, because it is hot.
Kabushenga has told the outspoken Pastor to use the 21 days of the lockdown to stick to pornography and get himself stimulated, instead of interfering with the country’s efforts to fight the pandemic.
“Martin Ssempa, maybe stick to pornography, your life’s calling and especially now that you have another 21 days. [It] should keep you stimulated. Leave the serious matters actually doing good for Uganda to those who are willing and able,” Kabushenga tweeted in a quoted reply.
When asked by tweeps what he has donated to the taskforce, Ssempa said that he is planning to donate cassava and sweet bananas from his garden to people in his community.
It should be noted that before government set up the National Taskforce to collect donations, Robert Kabushenga gave in his time and connections to set up a group where his fellow CEOs from the private sector donated millions in cash, food, sanitizers, water, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other essentials in the fight against COVID-19 in the country.
