Kampala - The presiding apostle of Born again Churches Dr James Sserwadda has called for a mass campaign to castrate all men who have fathered at least 4 children, as a measure to the rapidly growing population. Dr Sserwadda says, as an effective measure to curtail the rapidly growing population, all men who have reached four children should be subjected to vasectomy
to avoid them making more children.
Sserwadda’s call follows a government proposal to apply mandatory family planning methods to all mothers who have reached at least four children.
Sserwadda says subjecting mothers to any method may not be effective, since their husbands can as well continue making children elsewhere even when the wives have been stopped.
Sserwadda says in Africa polygamy still exists and men can continue with the practice, which will result into high futility, hence rendering the campaign on women ineffective.
He says this campaign on women will be applied as antecedent for justifying abortion, a practice against the Christian norms and belief.
Sserwadda says if the state is committed to this, let there be a national policy to force all men under go vasectomy once they attain the number of kids by law.
He regretted the move by Members of Parliament to exempt their monthly allowances from paying income tax, a move that will incapacitate the Country’s efforts to serve the people.
He says such funds would enable medical researcher do work on calamities like nodding disease that has affected areas of Northern Uganda, leading to death.
He says MP’s should volunteer part of their salaries to such causes, to be counted for their efforts.
The Country will miss at least shs. 54.7bn in Revenue collection as a result of the MPs’ decision to exempt their allowances. Dr Sserwadda commended the Uganda Police for its operation fika salaama, that has reduced road carnage along Kampala-Masaka road.
Dr Sserwadda remarked that this years’ National Prayer Pass-Over hosted by Victory Life Church Ndeeba will be driven on the theme, “Transfer of Amazing Wealth”.
Over 45,000 people are expected to flock to Mandela National Stadium, Namboole for the prayer day and night crossing over to the New Year.
