Ladies and Gentlemen,
Already that time this ELCT diocese was shaken by scandals. The management - with knowledge and in conspiracy with the local bishops - stole several 100 Million TSH from different projects in the Makete diocese, not only the hospital as overseas missions tend to lie in support of their brothers and sisters in church crimes.
ELCT and more so the funding overseas missions are since decades shaken by corruption and criminal financial performances. One can not help himself to feel disgusted about bishops and the whole institution (ELCT) of god’s people when reading about their numerous scandals while they are going on displaying to be a moral authority for the country.
BUT certainly much more disgusting are the overseas Lutheran missions and their corrupt directors, who are to blame for their criminal performance. Since years the presiding European bishops tell the public that the donations given for Africa would help the poor, while they disappear in black holes from Europe to Africa finally ending up in suppressing the poor even more instead of lifting them up. These lies of a corrupt European Church elites are indeed supporting the same criminal elites in Africa. In Europe medieval times where the church could interfere with all sectors of lives, while being corrupt, murderous and cruel, were finally overcome by secular and democratic societies.
Contradicting their loss of power in prospering liberated Europe, it is disgusting that German and Austrian Lutheran Bishops and their missions are obviously intentionally going on to support and sustain corrupt, powerful medieval churches and their criminal deeds and spirit in Africa.
The hypocrites, criminal systems without accounts and audits in Bulongwa are and stay in charge since. Killing ethical persons who have a heart to help their own people by just delivering their expected duties is obviously enough in Tanzania to die. Being a decent person you come across the corrupt business of criminals, in the church, in NGOs, ministries… that’s obviously enough to die.
Global Fund, international NGOs, Governments… they do nothing but watching and going on to pour cash in the pockets of people who suppress, not help.
It is time to sue the missions at the international human right court in Hague for violating the rights of Africans by supporting corrupt NGOs and churches.
