Even if your kids are talented like Inspector Jill, take them to study at least any course. Careers in art and sports in poor Uganda depend mainly on luck and favor. Bebe Cool boarded first class to America to shoot Wasibukawa video while his nemesis Bobi Wine shot Kyarenga from somewhere, I think in Kakumiro and you all saw the results.
There is a video that Navio shot at more than 50 million and a naive me thought that such a video takes a peek into what is happening in heaven. More so, I was anxious for that video because Job Paul Kafeero had died recently and I wanted to confirm whether he is heaven or the other side. Anyway, whatever befall the song, only Navio knows.
And talking about hell, I think Church should stop engulfing our children with the fear of hell but rather concentrate on teaching them the love for heaven. I have a friend of mine who is so afraid of hell that whenever you’re driving and an incident occurs, the first words he utters are for God to forgive him of all sins.
I asked him why and he told me of his fear for hell in as much as he is not interested in heaven, “it would be horrible to burn through out, Mukwasi, just imagine that pain”. So we are in Church preaching to 100 presumed faithfuls, urging them to go to heaven when actually 90% are not so much interested, they would choose another option if it was heaven, hell and another.
Then there is this atheist friend of mine who keeps challenging me whether I can manage being in heaven if at all it is what the religion preaches (milk, honey and singing all the time). She cannot imagine taking milk all the time, growing fat and having to sing all the time from morning to morning without sleep. Then she talks about dimensia, sleep deprivation, disorder et al. She therefore thinks it is better she stays here on earth. “Imagine living a docile life without day to day challenges, being broke, fools day prank and the vote rigging of Uganda.” When she started going political, I took off direct to church and prayed that Jesus turns her back to God.
