Pastor Aloysius Bugingo of the Makerere based House of Prayer Ministries International (HPMI), last night launched a scathing attack on Pastor Jessica Kayanja of the Robert Kayanja Ministries, calling her “arrogant.”
Mrs. Kayanja on Wednesday came out in support of Bugingo’s wife, Mrs Teddy Bugingo, who accuses her husband of trying to wreck their 29-year-old marriage and replacing her with a younger woman.
Bugingo on the other hand accuses his wife and children of trying to steal the land on which his church sits.
Mrs Kayanja, wife of Pastor Robert Kayanja in a statement, announced she was launching a prayer session for Mrs. Bigingo, whom she likened to the Biblical Esther “who prevailed and stayed in the palace of the King despite her many foes.”
“May the seed that Mrs Teddy Bujingo has sown for 29 years in this marriage rise up and crush the head of the Serpent,” said Mrs Kayanja.
“I call upon every mother, married woman, child borne of a mother, every Pastor’s wife and every one out there that upholds Holy Matrimony to join the Girl Power Team and I in prayer! The Hebrew woman will not leave her marriage. HADASSAH MUST STAY!!!!”
The call by Mrs Kayanja however, did not sit well with Pastor Bugingo and last night he hit back, demanding that the former backs off his family issues.
While appearing on Salt FM, Bujingo said Mrs Jessica Kayanja was wading into matters she had no knowledge of.
“Never involve yourself in issues you don’t understand with ignorance. I have never sat you down to tell you my family issues, a symbol which shows that we have nothing in common though (we are) not enemies. We have never stepped in your church, so if Teddy came to you then advise her wisely,” he said.
The angry pastor added that he has never involved himself in the marital affairs of the Kayanjas even though they are known to have had challenges.
Going to Jessica’s comparison of his wife to the biblical Esther, Bugingo noted that this was a wrong comparison.
He said he wife on the contrary, could be likened to Queen Vashti, who lost her husband, King Ahasuerus, to Esther.
“Esther would not have existed if there was no foolish woman. This is how Esther came in. There has to be a foolish woman, legally married, loved, cared for, given everything but took everything for granted,” he said.
