“God has made a miracle. I didn’t know that there was intention to create such a position.I left parliament 14 years but now I can’t resist God’s calling because he called me to come and rescue the elderly” – Miria Matembe
I don’t know, if it was the holy spirit or God that made it happen, but it was surely the curse of common greed. That was the reason for the motion and amendment before the General Election of 2021. Which gave way for 5 Elderly MPs in the 11th Parliament.
Trust me, God does not favour greed as a virtue. Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu press statement and motion to add these Members of Parliament wasn’t so godly. It wasn’t a divine intervention or belief that made this happen. No, this was about inclusiveness. It was no mention of any deity or the holy sphere among men. No, it was just a way to argue for more MPs into Parliament.
That is why Matembe is out on a limb. Maybe, her pay in the CCEDU isn’t that good? Maybe she doesn’t feel as relevant or have the space to participate in society there?
Who knows, but its wasn’t God who created abundant of new MPs in the 11th Parliament. No, that was done by greedy gerrymandering MPs and their associates. They all saw it fit to alter the counties, districts and cities ahead of an election. Also, to add 5 Elderly MPs to sufficiently secure the mix.
Because, the likes of Kamutu felt that the elderly was marginalized, even if plenty of MPs are in the age bracket of the elderly MPs. They are all older persons and some advanced age. They could all be on NSSF pensions and be secured for life. Instead, they decide to continue to serve and collect funds.
So, in my mind this is not because of a deity or a divine intervention. That the common greed and the personification came from the professor and not from God. Yes, Miria wants to be anointed and have a new entry to Parliament. However, that is more of the same and not because of her holiness either.
The salaries and the pay-off to be in Parliament is to great to leave behind. Especially for someone who has been there and who knows how much more they are getting in allowances, salaries, cars and whatnot. These people are eating good on the public’s plate. They are getting obese and fat, while the others are starving. So, its not so much, practice what you preach; but don’t do what I do, but what I say.
She should call upon Mr. Kamuntu and thank him. Give him a blessing, a prayer and maybe even a holy communion. To give the credit to God is to make good greedy and his lessons in the Bible is against that. Therefore, the usage is beneath the transcendent and all powering God.
I doubt God in his mercy looked upon a few and wanted to make them millionaires, while the rest must live in a gig economy. In that name we pray, amen. Peace.
