The preacher of St. John the Baptist Kyengera Church of Uganda has abandoned his church because of the witchcraft in the church.
According to the preacher, Samuel Kigozi, whenever he got up to preach to the congregation, he would feel the pulpit sinking and sees other members of the church doing weird stuff. He went on to add that the team leader of the church, David Mukasa together with his brother-in-law, Ivan Luyima Ssemakula practice witchcraft in the church.
He said that whenever he gets up to preach, he sees these two in a vision as they practice witchcraft in the church.
Ssemakula, the youth leader however said, “The way i see it, this man has been practicing some witchcraft. First of all, he sells water for blessings yet it has drugs. When people tell him they want to be prayed for, he tells them it is not necessary for them to go to church but rather buy for him airtime worth sh5,000. Every time you have a problem and you call him on phone, he prays for you on phone only. Like a lair, when he is praying, he pin points people saying they have some witchcraft associated materials or they bewitched someone or something like that.”
He went on to add saying, “He also has another girl who has been staying at his house but he said she had been possessed by demons as she spoke uncoordinated things.
Mukasa also said on the issue, “According to the church law, there are no investigations made on the church leaders but rather it is the leaders themselves to investigate on their fellow leader. The mistake this gentleman made was to talk lies about Christians. He has spent two years in this area; he came here from Bunnamwaya.”
He has already been transferred from the church to another church.
