Police arrest Ugandan 'Jesus'

04 July 2016, 13:59 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - A man who has been referring to himself as Jesus has been arrested by police alongside 10 of his followers.

Police in central Uganda's district of Nakaseke have identified the arrested man as Emmanuel Semakula, a 33-year-old resident of Tonga village.

According to police officer Thomas Buule who led the team that arrested Semakula and his followers, they were tipped by some residents of Tonga that there was a man who has for over 6 months been calling himself Jesus and was confusing people by instructing them to sell all their property, give him the money and follow him.

All his followers were staying at his home after selling all they had and given him the proceeds.

''He had over 20 followers at his home but some fled when we went to arrest them. The followers are malnourished because he had ordered them to stop eating cooked food because it is against God's will. He also told them never to go for treatment in hospitals,'' said Buule.

Buule said they will take Semakula to court soon to be charged with several offences including sabotaging government programmes like medical care, unlawful assembly and fraudulently obtaining money from people.

After being interviewed by press, Semakula insisted that he is Jesus.

He said: ''I am Jesus Christ. I have come to save people in the world starting with Ugandans.''
