Pastor Male defends Bobi Wine’s Engule song

Pastor Solomon Male

Singer-turned-politician Bobi Wine has recently come under fire by some Pentecostal pastors over his new song Tuliyambala Engule which has in a way become the anthem of the People Power movement.

Most recently, Pastor Joseph Serwadda of Victory Christian Church, warned Bobi Wine against using God’s property in blasphemous situations.

The song that features other local musicians like Pastor Wilson Bugembe, King Saha, Irene Ntale, Nubian Lee, Ronald Mayinja, Dr Hilderman is derived from a Christian hymn.

However Pastor Solomon Male has defended the singer saying that there is no evil in singing about the challenges people face.

In an interview with NBS television this morning, Pastor Male said the song is rallying Ugandans for patriotism, and not evil.

“When Bobi Wine sings a song, when does it become evil? Bobi Wine is singing about the injustices we have in this country. ‘Engule’ resonates with the challenges people face, murders, health care issues, injustices. Is he the first one to sing, what sin has he committed?”

“He’s rallying people behind the cause. The bible mandates us to advocate for the weak and oppressed. We see politicians on a day to day basis quoting scriptures to drive their point home, why can’t Bobi Wine do the same?” he wondered.
