Ugandan pastor accused of sexual abuse

29 July 2016, 18:26

Kampala - A Ugandan pastor allegedly sexually abused several women in his congregation in an effort to make them "fertile", the Daily Monitor reports.

The suspect, from the country's Lira district, was arrested on Tuesday after several allegations of sexual assault were made against him. He could face charges of extortion due to his collection of money from the public in exchange for "blessings".

The investigating officer, Francis Liiga Francis, said the suspect was attached to the Pentecostal Ministries. He said several complaints had been received from market vendors who claimed the church leader had been extorting money from them.

Victims alleged the man wanted 15 000 Ugandan shillings from them, with the promise of banishing all their financial and personal problems.

He allegedly urged vendors to throw dirty water on the food they were preparing, to attract more customers to their stalls.

The man has pleaded not guilty, claiming he was merely doing God’s work and praying for those in need.

The development follows the arrest of another pastor who reportedly had sex with female congregants and extorted money from believers.

According to a report by The Insider, he was arrested in July last year after members of the Holy Power Center Church complained the self-proclaimed prophet had sexually assaulted them.

The church and its branches in the Gulu district had since been shut down.
