KAMPALA – More Pentecostal Pastors are mounting pressure on Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine to denounce his latest song, ‘Tuliyambala Engule’, and work on another.
The latest, Dr Joseph Serwadda of the Born-again faith Federation has told journalists Bobi Wine should not use “use God’s property in blasphemous situations.”
“Go and warn the member of parliament who is using this song. Tell him don’t use God’s property in blasphemous situations like this one,” Dr Joseph Serwadda told NTV Uganda on Sunday.
‘Tuliyambala Engule’ loosely translated to mean we shall wear a crown has become talk of the nation, since the ‘Kyalenga’ singer released it on 31st December.
Dr Serwadda now joins Pastor Martin Ssempa, an activist and founder of the Makerere Community Church, who made headlines on January 2 when he accused Bobi of turning the Christian song into a “political party song.”
Ssempa’s remarks attracted both approval and reproach, nevertheless, he later took to social media saying “I held a meaningful phone call with Bobi Wine concerning the “misappropriation” of the “sacred” for his political campaigns.”
“I have prevailed on him to abandon the sacred song and compose a new wine anthem. We plan for a meeting,” he said then.
Theologian from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Hamilton, Massachusetts Mr Joseph Byamukama remarked addressed the matter as well.
He said that ‘Tuliyambala Engule’ by its original intent is a one-way lane.
“Wisdom dictates that we do not replace the eternal with the temporal, nor blur the distinctions by substituting one for the other. The remixed song promises what only Christ delivers, which is why a political battle-cry replaced perseverance in faith,” Mr Byamukama said.
“Surely we shall not ultimately wear the crown because of a regime change. The ‘new Uganda’ will still have its problems until Christ returns. As long as our hearts are desperately wicked, our castles will crumble together with our crowns,” he continued.
Responding to this development, activist And political analysis, Walter Mika wondered if the deliverance of Israel from oppression is a sign of faith in God, but “deliverance of Ugandans from oppression is evil.”
“I thought the greater part of the Bible is Political! David who wrote most of the Psalms that we copy and use in prayers was political, in-fact most of his Psalms were about delivering himself and his people from oppression,” Mr Walter said.
“So should we keep on talking about delivering Israel but never talk about delivering Uganda? Why should it be a sin to sing about the deliverance of Uganda (the Israel of Ugandans) in a gospel song,” he added.
