Renowned Pastor, Martin Ssempa has said children who grow up without fathers become delinquents and urged African parents to give more time to their children and try as much as possible to avoid ‘the modern-day growing vice’ of single parenting.
Ssempa, famous for fighting against homosexuality, while appearing on Sanyuka TV’s lifestyle show, She Talk on Sunday 2nd April 2023 went vocal on the roles of the two parents, mother, and father, in a family and how this impacts the children’s upbringing.
He says single mothers can’t raise kids appropriately and asserts that this is the biggest reason why black families are getting more broken.
“The number one reason why the black family has gotten broken more is that fathers are missing from the lives of their children. While single mothers believe they can raise children alone, the absence of a father makes the kids grow into delinquents,” Sempa said.
Ssampa believes children without fathers are ‘usually showered with lots of love’ and ‘no rules are applied to them’ to understand the other side of reality.
“Without a father, the kids are not governed appropriately and the constant showering of love from their mother makes it difficult for them to grow into responsible citizens of tomorrow,” he added.
Martin Ssempa is a Pastor, Anti-homosexuality Activist, and Founder of Makerere Community Church.
