UB40 to rock Kigalians
Latest from our local entertainment industry is that of the UB40 who are coming to perform in Kigali. The celebrated British-based band famously known for their song ‘Red Red Wine’, UB40 will set Kigali on fire on Friday November 21.
Scouts have revealed that the preparations for one of the ‘80s most popular bands are in high gear in the capital. We hear the Ministry of Sports and Culture (MISPOC) invited the band to Rwanda and the ministry is rumoured to start a massive public awareness campaign for the concert. So look out for billboards and newspaper adverts.
Sinful child causes chaos in church
Recently a junior pastor was seen chasing after a kid who had taken the money from the box of the tenth offerings. It all started during thanksgiving a young boy who seemed to be a street kid (Mayibobo) marched off with money collected from the congregation. Instead of contributing, the boy swiped an envelope.
The pastor who was standing in the pulpit immediately jumped down and ran after the boy, who had already disappeared.
But I guess one will be forgiven for thinking that God had sent the boy there to find his bread, since God is our father and cannot be annoyed if His children are fed.
