Martin Ssempa attacks the Ugandan diaspora

You could never accuse Pastor Ssempa of mincing his words. In a public debate on professionalizing journalism on Tuesday (more of which later), Ssempa tore into Ugandans who have lived abroad for becoming “ideological sycophants”. He claimed they leave with one world-view and come back with another, having succumbed to “market forces of the soul” by taking scholarships at Western universities. Ssempa’s prime target was a change in moral attitude to issues like homosexuality, against which he has been leading a vocal campaign. He summed it up as follows: “Ugandans who go abroad are victims of Michael Jackson syndrome, they are born black but die white.”

So what does our readership in the diaspora think of this? Have you contracted the dreaded Michael Jackson syndrome?

Comments

Andrew Agaba: I tend to agree with Pastor Ssempa. I have seen journalists propagate worldviews that markedly contrast with local school of thought.

I do not know if Tabaire of Daily Monitor has lived in the diaspora, but certainly every one knows that Andrew Mwenda is an LSE alumni and Stanford alumni whose views on homosexuality are very inconsistent with majority Ugandans.

That said, Pastor Ssempa generalized, or perhaps was wrongly quoted, because so many Ugandans have lived abroad and have not become brainwashed. He himself has a second home in America.

Steely Sempa ... what a clown !

Andrew Agaba You must be a clown yourself to take Ssempa for a clown. Or they would say you drunk too many a kool aid.

Isaac Eyalama True. Ssempa is really a true African. Many Africans go to the west and turn out
un African. Some forget that they were products of a heterosexual union and
instead begin to adopt or approve of sodomy forgetting that allowing sodomites
to marry is completely contrary to the customs, history and culture of all
societies throughout Africa.

Byasi: i Totally agree with Ssempa,,he has lived there and knows what is going on,,and spending time with such individuals,i've also seen the change,our society doesn't tolerate homosexuality

Maloba Isaac: The worst someone should be colonised is his mind. i wonder why some so called
learned friends and the enlightened seem to even ignore common sense that
positives repel while the negative and positive attract. Homesexuality has never
been way of life but a confusion some people purpose to practise then they seek
to convince everyone that they were born that way. The west colonised Africa but
i wiil never allow my mind to be colonised by utter confusion, wickedness and
abomination.

Steely: Sempa....clown..no? Alright then, how about a plain-ignorant-extremist and hate-monger!

Kankaka Edward Nelson: Steely, we notice you have a definite phobia for the truth and an enemy to what
is right. No mater which defence you give yourself, bad will always remain bad
whether you agree or not. My suggestion is that you revise your ideology and
ask God to remove the blindfold so you can see the truth.

bombokajb: i want to agree with Pr. Ssempa and one of the things i have observed is the
question of wether we are cowards or not. Back home there are things in Africa
that can't be even pronounced through the lips. So really "tukomewo
e'ka"...

steely bambi "golokoka oyake" naye tuswala its a shame and to all of us
as creature in God's image

I think you will find that Ssempa is now in the dock accused, among other things of being a thief.

Hi.
This is really interesting. I have been following up the issue of anti-homosexuality and lesbianism bill in Uganda.
The world should understand that in Africa (except for the parts that have been utterly undressed of their true identity and cultural pride), homosexuality and lesbianism as bad as genital mutilation, murder, rape and defilement. In fact, it's worse. If people must be punished for capital offenses, they must be equally punished for this violation of the laws of Nature.
It is Western fundamentalists and African sycophants of the West that promote sodomy in Africa. The anus was made for poop, and any sane individual must know it is an exit pipe, and no entry.
Surely, if this is the battle Sempa Martin is fighting, so be it. A massive number of Ugandans are equally alarmed by the inhuman act and are not going to rest until they kick all sodomy out of Uganda.
It is an alarming moral evil to defend a social evil. Those who defend homosexuality imposition in Uganda in the name of brotherhood must equally be held responsible for the damages caused to our children in schools. Whoever is of such sick ideologies MUST NOT come to Uganda. WE WILL ARREST YOU!!! And this is not a threat, its the reality. As a matter of fact, all sane Ugandans can't wait for this bill to go through. And it must.
Polio was kicked out of Uganda, now, We must Kick Sodomy out of Uganda.
