I saunter into the reception of the cathedral, humbling myself, I ask to see Pastor Robert Kayanja.
A quizzical look here and there and then questions rain on me. "For?
I explain that it is confidential.
directs me to the pastor's secretary.
I tell her
that I want to see Pastor Kayanja
, and she
too, demands to know why.
I repeat the excuse of a "personal matter."
"The pastor entrusted us, even if it is personal, tell us," she
"I am a leader of a Christian group at Makerere University
, so I want to ask him to be a panelist on our coming conference."
tells me to leave the proposal behind and that if the pastor looks through it and sees a reason to attend, he
will contact me. "You do not necessarily have to see him, unless it is a special case," she
then says that unless I attend the lunch hour service it was hard for me to see him.
I learnt that Pastor Kayanja
had just returned to the country from a trip abroad, so he
own family to attend to as well.
I am reminded that the pastor is a busy man who has a lot to do, that if I cannot see his
associate pastors then it will be hard for me.
The secretary, however tells me that on Saturdays, the pastor is more available.
tells me to come early on Saturday with a dream to interpret, then probably I would see him.
