‘Fake’ American pastor ‘who came to save Uganda’ arrested after assaulting a Hotel employee

Police in Uganda took to Twitter (the very same platform the Ugandan government is taxing thereby restricting widespread use of social media) to thank netizens for sharing a video of an American pastor, Jimmy Taylor who was captured assaulting a hotel employee.

Jimmy Taylor, the supposed ‘pastor from America who came to save Uganda’ is

seen assaulting a hotel employee, trying to punch him several times and then finally managing to land a slap at the back of the man’s head. All the while the employee maintained his cool, as fake pastor Taylor told him on several occasions he was disgracing Jesus.

The employee (referred to as Francis in the video) kept calm throughout the altercation even when the fake pastor was calling him derogatory names. The calmness of Francis seemed only to aggravate the fake pastor.

We call him fake pastor, as his actions are clearly far from the acts befitting the good men evangelizing the Holy Bible. His actions were full of demeaning and racist acts, like something in the colonial days when white men came on a high pedestal like they were the savior of savage people in the colonies.

When you think about it, fake pastor Jimmy Taylor was only apprehended because the video went viral on social media and got to the law authority. Had it not been for social media, the inappropriate act by Taylor might have gone unpunished. That is to say the move by the Ugandan government to impose a daily tax on social media users should be removed swiftly. It only serves to spread impunity, muzzle freedom of speech, and puts more pressure on so many Ugandans.
