    OPINION
    7 October 2007

    Like the saying, "old habits die hard," there is tension brewing in church over pastors who were once witch doctors but declared that they had got saved and began churches. Cross sections in church believe that it is these 'witch doctors' that are responsible for the current crisis in the born again churchs.

    Top stories of 'men of God' using charms and electric gadgets to perform miracles, sodomy, raping girls and snatching wives and husbands of members of their flock, have of recent dominated front pages in newspapers, tainting the image of born again churches.


    Pastor Solomon Male, who is strongly accused by fellow pastors of washing their dirty linen in the public, has vowed to clean up the mess in born again churches. "I will not rest until the church is free of such decadence," he says.

    It is for this reason that with the help of Arising for Christ, an organisation which he heads, Male decided to shoot Wolves Among The Sheep, a 28 minute documentary film. The organisation' s main objective is to shoot down false prophets.

    The film starts with footages of Kibwetere's Kanungu massacre in 2000. Explaining why he used the footage, Male says that, if nobody does something to stop the rot in church, another crisis of Kanungu proportions is certain to re-occur. The documentary also brings into light, the evil that other unsuspected pastors allegedly inherited from John Obiri Yeboah.

    According to Male, John Obiri first came to Uganda in 1972 and claimed that he had powers to raise the dead. When President Idi Amin brought him the corpses that he wanted him to raise, Obiri failed and fled for his life. He came back in the country in 1986 and this time round his mission was to take over as many church leaders as possible.
