HE WAS ALMOST KICKED OUT OF THE SEMINARY AT THE SAME TIME WITH ME, BUT HE IS NOW THE SUPERIOR OF THE COMBONI MISSIONARIES IN UGANDA
I have had such a wonderful time with Fr. Anthony Kibila, of Uganda who is visiting Zambia, for the profession of some Comboni novices (those who want to be Priests and Brothers).
Fr. Anthony was one of my close friends in the seminary and we used to go for apostolate of together, attending to Street Children in Kampala, Uganda.
This Priest has a free spirit, and says things as they are, with a strong sense of justice, fairness and sensitive to the needs of others.
When one of our colleagues was asked to leave, I, leading the way, protested and Kibila backed me up, accusing our formators of being unfair.
Unfortunately for me, I didn’t just talk, I went further to write a letter of complaint, but that was (still is) not acceptable, so I was kicked out.
Being a “Public Lawyer”, as always been a part of me, and I will die like that.
Nonetheless, I don’t regret my actions, it was not just for me to be a Priest but I am happy to hang out with my friends who is now are Priests.
During Mass, I received his blessings and communed the Eucharist consecrated by him. I felt like I was a Priest. I really felt WHOLE.
We later had a nice time in my garden at home, then breakfast. We chatted and laughed like buddies from old times.
God bless you my friend Fr. Anthony and Fr. Michael Mumba (standing on the left of Fr. Anthony on the Alter) who was like my twin brother back then.
I am now back to being a father of girls and husband.
HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY 💓
TAYALI MARRIED MAN – FAMILIES MUST COME FIRST!!!
TAYALI THE PUBLIC LAWYER OF THE PUBLIC COURT OF OPINIONS!!!
There’s a strong belief and understanding that persons who abandon priesthood become mentally unstable in their lives. He is one good example.
You can’t leave priesthood and be normal…..
I didn’t know this part of your history Tayali Chilufya..its appreciated. It’s good you have shared it. I have respect for people who have been to the seminary..May our good Lord be with our Tayali..No one who has been thru seminary can keep his tails down..speak for the people. That’s the calling God has given you. Be strong friend. God is with you.
Which people, ba Road of Shame. Mr. Tayali speaks for himself, his god is his stomach.
God does not delight in people who bear false witness against their neighbour.
His antics can easily set our nation alight. He peddles falsehoods in his quest to earn a living. God is definitely not with him. I suggest you listen to Bob Dylan’s “God on our side”. Please leave God out of Mr. Tayali’s confusion.
