In the Name of God, or Gods, whatever

Have you been following the case of Pastor Dr Martin 'eat da poo poo' Ssempa?


Well, he is court. Over the allegations that he and others paid and promised some money to people to make allegations that another Pastor (Kayanja, Brother to the Archbishop of York).

It is a messy case. Apparently, the First Lady is involved...., and many monies were promised to the boys. Of course, you do remember dear Georgina, Ex-ex-gay asserting that she went to Parliament to ask that the bill is passed because of the inducement of money, and fear that a fate like the Late David Kato would befall her...

OK, of the newer allegations....Here, from the state owned 'New Vision'

A prosecution witness on Wednesday told court that he betrayed Pastor Robert Kayanja by alleging that he had sodomised him, after one of Kayanja's accusers promised him a lucrative music deal. 
Ivan Akansiima, 24, told Buganda Road Court Grade One Magistrate Patrick Wekesa that local musician David Mukalazi made him the offer. 
Akansiima narrated that he made the accusations in a recorded statement at the criminal investigations department on April 6, 2009. 
He said he retracted it the following day at the Kampala Central Police Station after a talk with one of his mentors, Pastor Martin Wampamba. 
"He (Mukalazi) said the deal would yield a lot of money for us. He said I would reap a lot and that some people were ready to finance the music project if I made the accusations," Akansiima said. 
Mukalazi and his five other co-accused, including four pastors, were appearing to answer charges of tarnishing Kayanja's reputation by alleging that he sodomised boys at his Rubaga Miracle Centre. Others accused are pastors Solomon Male of Arising for Christ Ministries, Martin Sempa of Makerere Community Church, plus Michael Kyazze and Robert Kayiira of Omega Healing Centre. Also accused is State House employee Dorothy Kyomuhendo. 
Prosecution, led by Stephen Asaba, alleges that in 2008 at various places within Kampala district, the accused "conspired to cause injury to the personality and reputation" of Pastor Kayanja alleging that he was engaged in homosexuality. Akansiima, who is prosecution witness number 16, narrated that Mukalazi coached him on what to state in his first statement recorded on April 6, 2009. 
He said Mukalazi visited him at his home in Rubaga, and convinced him to state that he was one of Kayanja's victims. 

Its amazing, how far the 'Men of God' went to tarnish the name of another man of god.
