Penanso ma catholicswa…..bishop wapha albino…..kenaka…bishops supporting UTM…kenaka bishop wabeledwa ndalama…..

Catholic bishops like Demos & UTM

At least the thieves have stollen from a rich man AKA priest. But these priests steal from poor people which is more cruel indeed.

And why keep all that money in house? This is staged up by the priest himself. He wants to buy a plot for his concubine. Demeti!

K800,000.00 cannot be one Sunday collection. So, why was he keeping such a large amount in the house? I bet the thugs are part of his congregation who knew there was a lot of money in the house. Could it be he is far away from the bank? May be, but unlikely.

Where in the article does it say it was Sunday collection? It could be his money. It’s in his house and he should be free to keep any amount he pleases. After all K800,000 is not a lot of money especially when you’re working on a project.
