In this article the author makes a reflection upon her fieldwork took place in Uganda about the Nyabingi cult. Through the encounter with the medium and the common people, the author realized that a transformation is today in progress brought by the Pentecostal born again. Reporting some episodes and fragments of dialogues, she tries to show the current tension as regards the cult of Nyabingi, focuses on redefinition and transformation of the cult, and on its contradictory relation with memory and the past. While the born-again fight against the cult of Nyabingi through the destruction of shrines and sacred objects, they reincorporate the deity as a fundamental element of their message.
