In 2003, I did something foolish. A girl I didn’t know signed my autograph book in primary school and I lashed out at her. Apart from the verbal damage I caused, I drove the nail deeper when I ripped out the page she signed before her very own eyes. I had a very strong choleric nature and in the discomfort…More

I’m proud, self-centered, egoistic, ill-mannered, slothful, hypocritical, and malicious. That’s not a very good self-esteem , you say. Well it’s not but it’s why Ernest needs Jesus. I’ve always believed that if Christ could save Ernest Wamboye Wakhusama, then he could save anyone. But it wasn’t always like that. There was a time when I thought myself to be very…More
