Uganda health minister linked to Bahati bill deputy Julius Oyet

Bruce Wilson at Alternet has much detail on this story, including background on the relationship of Oyet to the New Apostolic Reformation.

Newly appointed Minister of Health Christine Ondoa is also a minister in Julius Oyet’s Lifeline church. Oyet is a Ugandan proponent of the Seven Mountains teaching which calls Christians to gain dominion in a nation by gaining prominence in all domains of society, including the government.

Oyet prophesied Ondoa’s rise to the Cabinet. Oyet is well connected to the government via relationships with President Museveni and his deputy status with David Bahati (in 2010 Oyet was deputized to collect petition signatures in support of the anti-gay bill), author of the Anti-Homosexuality Bill. The Bahati bill co-sponsor, Benson Ogwal is a longtime friend according to this report.

Making reference to Revelation 12:11, finance state minister Fred Jacan Omach said Ondoa’s appointment is a sign that “we have a spirit-filled President”.

UPC MP Benson Obua Ogwal, a long-time friend of Ondoa, said having known her integrity and incorruptible character, her elevation did not surprise him.

Many Ugandan protesters would be surprised to hear that they have a spirit-filled President.

While this appointment may be more political favor than prophetic fulfillment, the elevation of ministers to government Ministry is in keeping with the Seven Mountains mandate.

    Well, I’ll try the ‘spirit-filled president’ line on my Ugandan friends and see what reaction I get! It could prove entertaining!

    Newly appointed Minister of Health Christine Ondoa is also a minister in Julius Oyet’s Lifeline church….

    She is a qualified paediatrician and therefore has the necessary qualifications to head the ministry of health. That is the only thing that counts as far as I am concerned….

    Richard—-Ever the entertainer :-)

    No, I suspect that it will be I who could end up being entertained! (I’ve put this link out on a Ugandan blog, and await the reaction! I’ll report back of course; we’ll see what people say …)

    I don’t get the whole anti christian thing here with folks on Uganda and homosexuals. For my part I have terribly mixed views on the whole idea but to condemn and go after gays just reminds me of the US History on slaves and the white trash that attempted to disenfranchise slaves (when they could no longer buy slaves). Very appalling…so now we have more white American Trash now going after AfricanGays

    Come on….How sock is this? And you are allowing your selves to buy into this white trash???

    We all should stand up here and say something constructive here to remind how much trouble dumb ass white folks have gotten Africa in trouble in the past. We are letting it happen again and it is wrong. It s wrong legally, morally and ethically and according to any God that we worship. Its god’s call here…. not ours…this attack on these folks (as much as we may not like them at times) is totally wrong…Christ would not approve.

    It looks like Health Minister Ondoa is quite close to the American evangelicals who spoke at the infamous anti-gay conference in Uganda in 2009.

    The Box Turtle Bulletin blog has a photo, apparently of her, eating with Scott Lively, Caleb Brundidge, Don Schmierer and Stephen Langa.
