An image has been making rounds on social media about the flamboyant “Prophet” Mbonye bearing a prediction of AFCON2019 Results with Uganda winning on Penalties!
After Last night’s 0-1 loss to Senegal, it became apparent that our journey had ended and even more or less tragic depending on whether you are a “Mbonyerian” or not, the “man of God” had been exposed.
We took to investigating the accuracy of the rumor and this is what we found:
- The image bears the FIU TV logo. Uganda has no such TV station.
- The logo boundaries are fuzzy indicative of Photoshop activity.
- The image caption “Profit Mbonye” clearly indicates the work of someone with malicious intent.
- We carried out a deep internet search and there is no video footage of Mbonye uttering the said prophesy.
- There is also no record in any official archives to support the claim.
Our Verdict: Fake News!
We’ll focus more on Fresh Kid and his family for now.
I am neither a Mbonyerian nor his critic, I however admit to following his works with a keen curiosity.
