Minister Lokodo Suspends Pastor Martin Ssempa from Pornography Control Committee
The Ethics and Integrity Minister, Fr.Simon Lokodo has suspended founder of the Makerere Community Church, Pastor Martin Ssempa from the Pornography Control Committee (PCC).
Ethics and Integrity Minister, Fr. Simon Lokodo announced the suspension in a letter dated December 18, 2018.
“I in the meantime, I wish to inform you that your stay on the membership of PCC stands withdrawn,” the letter reads.
Fr. Lokodo says that Ssempa’s suspension was as a result of under performance.
“The committee denounced him for not performing in unison with them. We asked him to defend himself but he decided to go to court. We are now waiting for the court to decide,” Mr Lokodo said.
Mr Lokodo notes in the letter that Ssempa’s case has been referred to the “Attorney General’s Chamber for the necessary advice on the next course of action.”
The minister in the suspension letter also cites earlier warnings to Pastor Ssempa, who has in the last few days been in the media castigating Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine for trying to be like Jesus Christ in his new song Tuliyambala Engule (literally meaning we shall wear the victor’s crown).
