Last week, city pastor Aloysius Bugingo visited the parents of his new woman, Suzan Makula, in a Kukyaala ceremony in Kyebando, Kampala. The wedding is on the cards, despite the fact that on legal and religious grounds, Bugingo is still married to Teddy Naluswa. Naluswa has vowed not to grant Bugingo a divorce.
At the rudder of it all, another city pastor and disciplinarian, Martin Ssempa of Makerere Community Church, has weighed in on the saga, saying Bugingo is misleading his sheep and at the same time encouraging them to commit adultery.
Ssempa insists that Bugingo is committing a sin intentionally, referring to his new union with Makula as adultery. He also wonders what example Bugingo is setting for his sheep. Ssempa also added that this is the reason pastors are ridiculed and looked at as a laughing stock in the country.
He, therefore, asked the Government to give them an independent ministry to enable them to discipline such ‘rogue’ men of God.
