A few weeks back, NTV did an investigative story that put many pastors on a weighing scale about the miracles and other deeds they perform. The story which is built on a film about the Kanungu Massacre was produced by Bat Kakooza of Media Plus and presented by investigative editor Emma Mutaizibwa, exposed many pastors who plant fake testimonies from people in their churches.
Yesterday, we leant that two victims of the actions of the fake pastors were arrested and put behind bars, according to Bat Kakooza himself.
“The NTV piece I put together about fake pastors is negatively gathering dust. The woman who talked to us has been arrested together with her daughter who was defiled by a pastor,” he wrote on his Facebook wall.
He went ahead to say that Grade 1 magistrate Hope Bagyenda from Kajansi court ordered for the arrest and detention of the lady at Kigo prison while her daughter was remanded at Naguru remand home.
He also added that, he has verbally been attacked by one self-styled pastor who openly confronted him at Serena concierge a few days ago.
Sadly according to the investigations, the girl was apparently defiled, made pregnant by the pastor and forced to undergo crude abortion which made her womb rot.
Bat Kakooza’s story received a lot of reviews but with some criticism as well. It came at a time when churches are mushrooming at a high speed in Uganda making it a profitable business for some individuals instead of being a religious matter.
