Pastor Martin Ssempa Survives Mob

Ugandan-American pastor, activist, and the founder of the Makerere Community Church Pastor Martin Ssempa who came to limelight in 2010 after he strongly opposed homosexual, nearly lost his life over land yesterday.

Man of God survived a group of young men who attacked him together with his men he had come with on the land he claims to have bought some years ago in Kasanje Wakiso District.

Angry residents found pastor busy clearing the land he claims to be his and warned him to stop whatever he and his men were doing, he instead ignored them and continued with the activity, something that prompted the residents to attack him with sticks and Pangas.

His men who had come with dogs were chased with Pangas and narrowly survived after the pastor informed police who came immediately for their rescue.

The Owner of the land only identified as Henry revealed that it’s true he sold only four acres to pastor Martin Ssempa but unfortunately he had encroached to 23 acres.

In May 2011, pastor Ssempa urged MPs to pass the legislation which tightens laws against homosexuality, something that put Uganda under intense international pressure. The bill proposed an increment of penalties for homosexual acts from 14 years in jail to life, according to reports from BBC.
