Luweero Anglican priest defiles and impregnates a primary pupil

 

An  Anglican  Priest was arrested  accused and granted questionable police bond  in Luweero  diocese   for allegedly defilement and impregnating  a 14-year-old in girl  in Luweero town.

It is alleged that Rev Canon  who happens to be the Archdeacon of Luteete Archdeaconry and two other suspects, who are lay leaders attached to Bowa Church of Uganda in Makulubita Sub-county and St. Philips Church of Uganda Bajjo in Nyimbwa Sub-county, are also facing defilement charges respectively.

 

Members of the public who have been overly suspicious of the clergy men told whisper eye that a close relative who only identified himself as Moses revealed that his uncle (accused priest) was picked from his home by two police officers last week to go and make a statement at police, but the family is yet to know where he is being held although police insist the cleric is out on police bond.

Two of the defiled girls are sponsored by a charity organisation attached to the Church under the names of Compassion Uganda.

Police statements from witnesses indicate that one of the defiled girls has been under the accused Rev’s  care while Compassion Uganda footed the bill for the school fees among other basic needs.

The girl was a pupil at Luteete Primary school in 2017 where she sat her Primary Leaving Examination, but failed to proceed with her studies after she got pregnant. The pregnancy surprised her relatives who raised a red flag after the girl implicated the priest.

According to Savannah Region Police spokesperson, Mr Paul Kangave, the Police are done with the investigations and a case file no. CRB22/2018 has already been sanctioned for the implicated Rev Canon aged 62 to appear in Court on charges of aggravated defilement

Our sources have confirmed that the State Attorney has already sanctioned charges of aggravated defilement against the Rev Canon (name withheld). The lay leader attached to Bowa Church of Uganda is in police custody while his colleague who works with St. Philips Church is still at large, police told whisper eye media.
