Sexpestering ‘Bishop’ Kibuuka Caged Over Aggravated Torture

By Ivan Mwine

Self-claimed Bishop Jacinto Kibuuka, of the Mamre Prayer Centre in Namugongo, has been jailed for allegedly assaulting one of his employees, whom he accused of stealing Shs40,000.

According a statement from Police Spokesperson  SCP Fred Enanga, the  Territorial Police in Kampala Metropolitan Area and Kira Division,  today  charged to court, Bishop Kibuuka Jacinto, of the Evangelical Orthodox Church, located at Mamre Prayer Center, Namugongo, for the alleged Aggravated Torture of Othieno Denis, a 14 year old, pupil of Christ the King Junior School, Namungoona.

Enanga said in the statement thus; “The facts gathered indicate that on August 22, 2022, the victim was at Mamre Prayer Center, with his mother, Kemigisha Juliet, who works as a cleaner. The mother left him behind and went to town. It was during her absence that the Bishop called the victim and started demanding his money, Shs10,000 which was allegedly stolen by him.

He added that; “Instead of referring the matter to police, he started beating and kicking the 14-year-old victim. He then dragged him into his car and continued beating him as they drove to the mother’s home at Namugongo-Janda in Kira Municipality, to recover the money.”

Enanga noted that it took the intervention of the landlady, who rescued the victim and rushed him to Nuwa Hospital, Nabusugwe-Mukono, where he was admitted.

The victim is currently recovering from the injuries which were classified as Grievous in nature and Kibuuka will return to court next month for hearing of his bail application.

Kibuuka, who  fell out with the mainstream Catholic Church in Uganda before he started up  the Mamre Prayer Centre, made headlines some time back after  woman identified as Winnie Nantongo accused him of endlessly bombarding her with sexual advances and pestering her for nudes.

However, the case somehow went cold after Nantongo alleged that he was sending her threats through emissaries to either back off the matter or else face grievous repercussions.

Prior to breaking away from the Catholic Church  Kibuuka had been involved in a bitter war with Father Experito Magembe over the management of Bukalango Prayer Centre.
