Popular Ugandan cleric Prophet Samuel Kakande, urged members of his church to make generous contributions towards the purchase of a new car for him.
Prophet Kakande, who is the head of The Synagogue Church of all Nations, Uganda, made the request to his members during a recent sermon where he enjoined churchgoers to donate KSh 36k (N130k) each.
“I want only 300 dollars from each one. We’ll contribute and then buy a good vehicle,” he said.
Quoting the scriptures to back up his request, the preacher read out Luke 6.38 as he encouraged them to give as they would be given back.
He explained that his car needs to be replaced as it has become old since members got it for him. Prophet Kakande said the contribution was for those who love God and care about him.
“Do not push yourself. I am talking about those who love Kakande, it is not compulsory for me to pray for you; you must buy me a car, No,” the prophet said.
