Bp Odongo refutes State House backing in race for overseer of Pentecostal churches

By Our Reporter

A local based website  NEWS EDITOR recently came out with a story  in which it was alleged that Pastor Moses Odongo of Shine  and Arise Ministries  in Namuwongo and one of the five candidates standing for the position  of overseer  of the National  Fellowship  of Born Again  Pentecostal  churches  had claimed that State House had backed him for the post.

The website goes on to quote Farouk Kirunda, a Press Secretary to the president, who stated that State House wasn’t behind Odongo.

However  after deep investigations, it has been revealed  that the allegations  are simply aimed at mudslinging Bishop Odongo, who according  to reliable  sources  is the outright  favourite candidate  among the  contestants. 

It has also been alleged that the camp of Pastor Michael Kyazze of Omega Healing centre went about promising some of the pastors authorised to vote in the elections things like houses and agricultural equipment especially tractors for their communities.

Sources have revealed that according to the constitution of the NFBPC that for one to stand for the position of overseer, one should have been under the fellowship for 15 years. 

The source further reveals that Odongo has been a member for the NFBPC for 15 years while Pastor Kyazze hasn’t clocked even 2 years and this has rattled many feathers as many are asking why Kyazze was allowed to stand.

With elections slated for tomorrow, Thursday 16 March 2023 at the MTN arena in Lugogo and delegates coming from all corners of the country, sources add that Odongo is the outright favourite and this has rubbed the Kyazze camp the wrong way and thus are trying everything within their powers to tarnish the name of the man from Teso.

The same website also run a story that Pastor Kyazze was leading by 80% in opinion polls a thing the source rubbished stating that Odongo is the outright  favourite  and come tomorrow  he will win. Watch this space.
