Makerere Christian Fellowship Church Pastor, Martin Ssempa has added his voice to the hundreds of clerics who have come out to bash Pastor Aloysius Bugingo.
Only this time, Sempa is not happy that the controversial House of Prayer Pastor dances during his sermons.
“From Pastor to Comedian. Now #pastorBugingo resorts to twerking dances to attract and keep church members who are leaving over his adultery and shameful wife defamation,” Sempa tweeted this week.
Sempa’s angry tweet was accompanied by a manipulated video of Bugingo dancing in church. He is cheered on by some members of his congregation with about two or three tipping him.
Bugingo has been in the news for all sorts of reasons. At first the public had tolerated the fact that he wanted to divorce his wife of 29 years – Teddy Bugingo. However, it’s the claims that he tolerated Teddy in their marriage for ten years even when she suffered a haemorrhage problem that has attracted backlash.

And although he came out to issue a halfhearted apology, critics have continued to bash him from all angles, including Sempa who sits on the Anti-Pornography Committee.
Mid this month, the National Fellowship of Born-Again Pentecostal Churches (NFBPC) denounced Bugingo.
The clerics feel that Bugingo’s issues have escalated to a level that concerns the Church and the Public.
“Having done our part as believers, brothers, ministers, elders, and leaders in the body of Christ to love, admonish and correct our brother in love but in vain, we hereby denounce and disassociate ourselves from Pastor Aloysius Bugingo’s practices, outbursts, behavior, and doctrine. Henceforth, we do not recognize his ministry until we see genuine repentance and an acceptable change,” reads the letter dated 16, July and signed by Bishop Joshua Lwere, Rev Dr. Simon Emiau, and Bishop Daniel Waddimba.
