Officials at the National Water and Sewerage Corporation are grumbling over the possibility of not registering any bills from Monitor staff this week, all because of that man Ashish Thakkar.
Apparently, after shaking hands with the man said to be Africa’s youngest billionaire, the broke Monitor staff are dreaming of blessings, like the biblical woman with the bleeding disease who touched Jesus’ robes with a strong faith of healing.
In Mark 5:25, Jesus was preaching when a multitude of crowd surrounded Him. He was out to heal Jairus, the man with the demon. “And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse.
She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.”29And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease,” the bible says.
Now, we hear Monitor chaps, from the MD Alex Asiimwe and his ME Don Wanyama, down to reporters and cleaners, have been anxious for the billionaire’s handshake. Everyone made sure a pose with Thakkar was captured in HD format, which was quickly uploaded on social media platforms.
KFM presenter Patrick Kanyomozi is now all smiles, telling whoever cares to listen that his Kweli Productions, the promotions agency that died after Golola-Nagy fight following disagreements over pay, will bounce back. “Nalo! Kweli will be back with the blessings of a billionaire.
What Pastor Mayambala did to me was a total KO but if even Golola came back from that Nagy punishment to beat Titus Tugume, how about Kweli Productions with the blessings of the one and only Thakkar?” he said. Police beat reporter Andrew Bagala took issues with photographer Faiswal Kasirye, accusing the petite lensman of nugu after his picture appeared to show Thakkar seeing elsewhere while shaking his hands.
