When Simon Ssenyonga, a self proclaimed Son of Prophet Elvis Mbonye and leader of the Remnants in the Zoe Fellowship Ministry said that his prophet is higher in rank and importance than Biblical Prophets Elijah, Elisha, John the Baptist, Moses and even Abraham, it didn’t rub many Christians the right way.
His former colleagues at Makerere University, most of whom even voted him for guild president in 2016 (much as he lost), even threatened to way lay him and beat him to pulp as a means of putting some sense in his head.
Now his former classmates at the Law Development Centre (LDC) where he enrolled after his law degree at Makerere University have employed another tactic to slow down the fast moving mouth of Comrade Ssenyonga.
The former students, now advocates of the High Court and Subordinate courts had no nice words for their former classmate whom they described as a young promising lawyer then that is now living in the shadow of his former self.
“He told us that he would attend LDC classes in the spirit. Allegedly, Ssenyonga sat for the Corporate and Commercial exam from the comfort of his auntie’s home in Nansana. But alas, the man failed the exam. He failed one other and has since then never completed his LDC schedule.” Ssenyonga’s former classmate disclosed to Campus Bee.
According to him, Prophet Mbonye has a way that he ‘brainwashes’ young promising intellectuals in impossible religious beliefs and backtracks their movements in their respective careers.
“He is not alone. The rest of the young intellectuals in Mbonye’s group that may be (fortunately) performing in their careers and doing relatively well look up to Ssenyonga which is a problem.” He added.
He said Ssenyonga has mastered the art of manipulating public relations and out look to shape himself out there as very successful when he is actually struggling. And he says he borrowed this art from his ‘Spiritual Father’ Prophet Elvis Mbonye.
“He portrayed a very pompous proposal, engagement and later introduction ceremony. He claimed that he spent billions of money on each but how? And from where? He doesn’t have that money. I am so close to him and trust me, if he got such money, I would notice.” Our source further said.
Ssenyonga was not available to give us his side of these claims but other sources close to him acknowledged that he has not completed his LDC education and is yet to sit those two papers.
