Kampala's pre-teen street preacher gets international spotlight
If you have walked through one of the finest coffeeshops in central Kampala on an evening where you look even a bit iniquitous, you may have come across Muwanguzi Achilewo. He is the raspy-voiced kid who could claim to be the youngest of the city’s myriad street preachers.
In fact, if you have attended any of the monthly Uganda Blogger’s Happy Hour meets, you have definitely seen him.
Muwanguzi got Beebed this week: BBC reporter Salim Kikeke describes him as
“smartly dressed, wearing a faded denim jacket and holding a book - the Bible.”
He is energetically preaching to whoever passes him by."Let me be with you. Hurry up!" he shouts incessantly in a raspy mixture of English, Kiswahili and the local Luganda language, over the noisy traffic."Praise the Lord.
