An embarrassingly rancorous spat over school fees pitting run-away Pastor Franklin Mondo Mugisha with a woman he sired a kid with has spilled into the public domain. Such is the gravity of the spat that it has forced Mondo to publicly cast a doubt regarding his parentage of the child at the center of the misunderstanding.
“I doubt am the dad of the child. This is why I had requested for the DNA test to determine whether am the dad of the child or not,” the man who sired Kim Swagga with foul-mouthed socialite Bad Black states in an interview. He faults the mother of the child for rejecting his wish for a DNA test.
He divulges now that the mother of the child rejected the DNA to be conducted, he is willing to take care of the child, but only up to the age of 18 years. The 28-year-old Sarah Nakuya was the first to take the tiff right there into the public arena and Mondo imprudently rejoined and in similar terms.
Ush280, 000 wired to the school the child attends to cater for the just opened term’s school fees is the spark that set off the public bitter exchange. Mondo had quickly mobilized the funds he sent in after Nakuya secured an arrest warrant against him from the Makindye magistrate John Robert Okipi for failure to remit to her Ush500, 000 monthly for the upkeep of their son.
Mondo, on the police’s radar back home in Uganda, for supposedly fleecing a number of people out of up to Ush7Bn under the cover of, in return soliciting for them financial help from the President, thought by sending the funds Nakuya would be pleased to let him off the hook.
But, the woman on learning about the funds Mondo had wired to the school, quickly lost her cool and questioned the motive of the estranged lover seeing that the child is charged Ush500, 000 per term.
She quickly dialed one of the local vernacular dailies to leak what the so-called pastor had done and to also sting as well as embarrass him among the public as an irresponsible dad.
Called up for a comment, Mondo who is thought to be holed up in the US currently for fear of capture, found scapegoats in fellow Pastors he doesn’t name in regard to the misunderstandings he has with his side-dish. “There are Pastors there in Uganda who are inciting the woman to fight me,” Mondo told the local media outlet.
He defends paying the money he paid. “Places of worship have been under lockdown. I have not been working. Where does one expect me to get the money to pay the school fees in full in the circumstances of the lockdown?” Mondo quips.
He faults the magistrate for directing his arrest yet he knows fully how places of worship have been under lock and key and that notwithstanding the lockdown, he has been struggling to pay the maintenance for the child, albeit in bits.
