A Ugandan shepherd,He has abandoned his ministerial work after winning a huge sum of money through sports betting.
Local media reports that he earned UGX 100 million (N21 million) and decided to close his church, leaving members confused and in disbelief.
When he realized he is now 100 million shillings richer, he closed the building and stranded members of his congregation when they attended the weekday service.
Church members who visited the facility were shocked to see that the gate was closed and the pastrafter wallowed in poverty for many years.
The cleric was contacted and confessed that the reason he chose to work in God’s vineyard was strictly to earn a subsistence income and not because he was called.
Ochieng further described the victory as a blessing from God and a quick way to get him out of the poverty he lived in because he couldn’t support himself with the money from his poor congregation.
