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.
