Nairobi - A pastor who allegedly impregnated a schoolgirl and later killed her after she refused to abort has been arrested in Uganda.
The 17-year-old who was a Sunday school teacher at the Pastor's church was five months pregnant when she met her death.
Charles Nyachwara killed the girl using a kitchen knife back in 2011, The Star reports.
He was arraigned at the Kitale Law Court where he was charged with murder and released on bond.
After his release, Standard reports that Nyachwara fled to the neighbouring Tanzania, then later Uganda where he changed his citizenship and started a church.
Nyachwara was arrested last week as he prepared to exchange marriage vows with his Ugandan fiancée and is now in police custody.
