“Leadership comes from God. All those opposing the government are going against God’s will” – Rogers Mulindwa (NBS TV, 02.01.2021).
The National Resistance Movement Spokesperson Rogers Mulindwa on the 2nd Day of 2022 has said these words. He has taken a deity and a using the transcending powers to get people to be loyal to the NRM and the Government of Uganda. I am sure God has bigger worries and better things to do.. than ensure people natural loyalty to any government on planet earth. As God almighty has to listen to all the pleas, prayers and acts of faith from all believers across the world. He should be preoccupied with healing hearts and taking care of the souls who wants to be redeemed. Alas, not worry about about opposition to Museveni or any of his party affiliates.
That’s why I have to drop some wise words from the Proverbs, since it seems a sensible way to prove my argument today:
“12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men,
from men whose words are perverse,
13 who have left the straight paths
to walk in dark ways,
14 who delight in doing wrong
and rejoice in the perverseness of evil,
15 whose paths are crooked
and who are devious in their ways” (New international Version, Proverbs Chapter 2, 12-15).
It is wicked to think opposition to a tyrant and his tyranny is going against God. That is the wicked men and the false prophets, which Jesus spoke against. As Museveni and his kind speaks of peace, but deliver brutality and death. That’s why you know their acts aren’t sincere or within reason. It is just to stay in power.
We are now seeing NRM Spokesperson saying being in opposition to the government is against the will of God. Isn’t that making God a very tiny person and such? Why should we delight in the people who do us wrong and delivers evil? It shouldn’t be this easy, but the spokesperson is defending a government that uses violence, torture and arbitrary arrests of civilians. A government that plans to stop the opportunity for bail or bonds. So, we know law or justice isn’t a main concern for this government, neither is due process, as several of political prisoners are kept behind bars without any sincere action of the authorities.
That’s why, I feel more sorry for the plights and legal jeopardy the weak, the poor and the ones suffering, because of the government. It gives God more reasons to listen to them and help them. Instead of being there for the wicked, perverse and crooked government, which the spokesperson defends by any means. I am sure God prefers to be there and heal the suffering of which the government put on it’s citizens.
“12 I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence;
I possess knowledge and discretion.
13 To fear the Lord is to hate evil;
I hate pride and arrogance,
evil behavior and perverse speech.
14 Counsel and sound judgment are mine;
I have insight, I have power.
15 By me kings reign
and rulers issue decrees that are just;
16 by me princes govern,
and nobles—all who rule on earth” (New International Version – Proverbs Chapter 8, 12-16).
This proverbs here prove again what is wrong with the NRM and it’s government. As it’s Ministers, Head of State and everyone in office is arrogant. They are so proud and vicious. Yes, to fear the lord is to hate evil. However, what is righteous is to not be evil and participate in all acts, which God doesn’t prefer. Which we know the NRM and their leadership indulge in. Therefore, the bible itself is speaking up against the rulers and the government. The bible is opposing the NRM and it’s leaders. That should be a warning and their wicked ways should be exposed. That’s what the opposition does and it’s not offending God.
The opposition is actually showing it’s wisdom and is not following wicked men. That should be the reality of it all. However, don’t expect a spokesperson or anyone associated saying this. They will dismiss it and find some excuses to defend their actions. These folks don’t mind the civilians dying or the arbitrary arrests. As long as the evil deeds are not happening to them. Peace.
