Renowned gospel singer Frank Kasiita, who runs a charity organisation known as Orphan Saves Orphans (OSO), has distanced himself from allegations that his organisation is one of the many scams in Uganda being used to fleece unsuspecting donors of their money.
Kasiita, whose Nongovernmental Organisation (NGO) OSO, donated food to orphans in Mukono and Kayunga districts a few days ago to help them during the COVID-19 lockdown, has since donated relief aid to orphans in Masaka district.
He told our reporter that “Some people connived with reporters from a local media house and they published stories linking my to some NGO. However, I would like to clarify that the only organisation I work for is called Orphan Saves Orphans.”
He added that “Those are detractors who are paid little money to tarnish other people’s names. But my work is a divine calling and there are so many rich people out there who cannot help orphans. So if a poor man like me tries to help orphans then someone instead works on bringing tarnishing my name, is that a spirit of Pan-Africanism?”
He also noted the Bible in the book of Deuteronomy 31:6 teaches that; “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Kasiita said that with earnings from his gospel music, he reaches out to different needy people in and around Kampala, who he helps from donors both in Uganda and across borders.
Kasiita, during his recent donation exercise which he conducted with Good Samaritans under their umbrella group Team Jesus, donated food, clothes, wheelchairs and other basic needs to needy kids, elderly and disabled kids.
The singer told this website that he get funds through selling his recorded music on CDs and others through friends and family abroad.
Some of his songs include; ‘Nyamba Mukama’, ‘Yali Mukama’, ‘Waliwo’ ‘Byendana’, ‘Nina Esubi’, ‘Obade Mulungi Gyendi’ and others
“They have been so much generous in helping me on this,” he said.
So far he has done charity activities in Mukono, Kayunga, Kireka, Biira, Masaka and Bugonzi.
