Kakande faces Criticism

Prophet Samuel Kakande has been criticized on several occasions for his spectacular miracles by his fellow pastors, who claim that he is a false prophet and a devil worshipper.

One of them is Pastor Jackson Senyonga of Christian Life Church Bwaise who said that Christians who fellowship in churches like that of Kakande, Aloysius Bugingo and Augustine Yiga, Bro Ronnie Makabai, Pr. Elvis Mbonye among others, sold their souls to the devil.

“I have done my research on these pastors and have evidence of what I am talking about. I am not bad mouthing these pastors but speaking the truth. No man who does such acts deserves to be called a man of God.”

However, in response, Kakande says his Ministry’s theme, is to try to take people out of poverty and other social-economic issues.

“With this concern of the increasing congregation, with a burden of poverty, jobless, shelter problems while others are orphans, the Kakande Ministries has thought of a way to assist the masses to improve on their daily income and to secure jobs for the people through sustainable agriculture.”

Prophet Kakande’s number two from 1988 to 1992, Pastor Solomon Male of Arising for Christ also accuses Kakande of evil practices in the church claiming its God’s mighty powers. 

Male says he witnessed a lot of evils committed in the name of Jesus of Prophet Obiri Yeboah the late.

Male narrates he performs miracles and torment his followers using Obiri’s dead spirit. He as well witnessed marriages and families being torn apart and healthy people manipulated into relationships with known AIDs sufferers who Kakande claimed to have prayed for and healed in the name of Jesus.

He claimed Prophet Kakande buys off people and ferries them to the church to give false testimonies and fake miracles at a fee with some earning up to over 500,000 for their dramatic acts.

Prophet Kakande’s son 

Sam Kakande, son to the Synagogue Church of All Nations prophet, Samuel Kakande, rebuked his Dad and joined the Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA), saying he can no longer live a life of lies, stage-managed Miracles, witchcraft and endless evil sacrifices.

Kakande revealed this at Namboole Stadium during the annual corporate prayer day which was hosted by the Seventh Day Adventist Church on 14 Jan 2018.

Sam Kakande confessed that he fears being sacrificed that is why he is joining the SDA church where they don’t preach riches, luck and fortune. 

He was surprised by the way the SDA church reads the Bible which is different from the way his father Prophet Kakande reads it.
