Bishop David Kiganda, the founder of Christianity Focus Centre Church (CFC), has mocked gay activitists who bastardized his recent remarks on homosexuality to suit their ill motives.

In a clearly visibly adulterated video clip making which has since gone viral, Bishop Kiganda, a renowned and outspoken anti-gay Pastor in Uganda, is seen saying that the only way pastors can refuse money offered by homosexuals is if the flock commits to giving offertory.

He says: “If you claim to be against homosexuality yet you don’t give us money, you are dishonest. You are a liar. If you don’t want Churches to get money from homosexuals, then bring your money to the Church so that it can be used to do God’s work. You have to back your words with actions.”

The contents of the video, according to Joshua Yatulwanira, a senior staff at CFC, are not only false but also malicious, vindictive and malignant, which the public should treat with all the contempt they deserve.

“The original message of the Bishop was encouraging Christians to work hand in hand with the church to fight homosexuality and say e the generation. He explicitly stated that the Church should not be compromised to bend for gay financial aid,” Yatulwanira says.

“We call upon all Kingdom minded people not to be diverted away from the gist of the matter by people with their own selfish interests and agenda in supporting the deadly human race killer,” he says.

This news website understands that the matter is being investigated by security with the view of holding to account the individuals behind this mischievous campaign against Bishop Kiganda, a man who has for decades preached against homosexuality.

The development comes amid reports of growing homosexuality in the country including promoting it on social media with reports suggesting that gay groups and their networks, are now targeting learning institutions as major recruitment centres.

Parliament is currently processing a Bill titled Anti-Homosexuality Bill, 2023, that seeks to prohibit any form of sexual relations between persons of the same sex and prohibit the promotion, recruitment, funding and recognition of such relations.

While moving the motion, Basalirwa observed that Parliament passed the Anti-Homosexuality Act, 2014 on 20 December 2013, which was nullified by the Constitutional Court citing lack of necessary quorum of lawmakers to vote on the Bill.

“This House had an opportunity to correct the anomaly then, but it was lost. We now have another opportunity to follow all the procedures to have a law in place,” he said.

Basalirwa described homosexuality as a ‘cancer’ eating up the world, and urged legislators to join in ensuring the establishment of a law to curb it.

“We always talk about human rights but it is also true that there are human wrongs. Homosexuality is a human wrong that needs to be tackled through a piece of legislation,” he added.

While chairing the House, the Speaker Anita Among reiterated a call to MPs to stand firm and vote for a law that will act against the vice which she said is a threat to society.

“This vice has persisted and the people who are suffering are our children. We must stand up and be counted as Parliament. We need to have a law in place as regards homosexuality,” Among said.

Hon. Charles Onen (Indep, Laroo-Pece Division) cited vision Uganda 2040 that has a goal to ensure Uganda has a healthy and productive population, which is at risk of homosexuality.

“The issue at hand is a public secret and we need to treat this as an act of terror on our children. The essence of humanity is preservation of life which is only guaranteed through procreation,” said Onen.

Hon. Sarah Opendi (NRM, Tororo District) called on law enforcement agencies including Uganda Police and the NGO Board to ensure apprehension of perpetrators.

“The promotion of homosexuality is not in any legislation and therefore, we must make it an offence for those who are promoting it among our children in schools,” Opendi said.
