I am appaled by the unprofessional manner in which Herman Owomugisha, the Entebbe Airport Police chief, and his colleagues, have bungled the case of the attempted importation of an Electronic Touch gadget by Obiri Yeboah Korji Nana.

The URA officials are commended for bringing to the attention of Police a suspicious-looking gadget. If the police did not suspect the gadget to be a Weapon of Mass Deception (WMD), they should have cleared Mr. Korji to bring it in.

By calling a press conference, Police alerted all pastors accused of using such gadgets to hide the evidence.

The Police should have carried out surveillance and caught them in the act. All they needed was to go to the churches on Sunday or Friday during night prayers.

1. Update: 'Holy Spirit machine lands Ghanaian pastor in trouble
'Holy Spirit machine lands Ghanaian pastor in trouble

The Ugandan Police are investigating a Ghanaian Pastor based in Uganda, Pastor Nana Kojo Yeboah, for allegedly procuring an "electric touch" machine which is believed to deliver Holy Spirit-like shock.

According to the Public Agenda, the temporary arrest of Pastor Kojo on July 5, and the possibility that many more pastors use the machine on unsuspecting worshipers desperate for miracles has stoked cynicism over the genuineness of exorcisms and miracle healings that have come to be identified with the Pentecostals.

"I believe people can pray and God heals, but we have manipulated people," said Pastor Solomon Male of the Arising for Christ Ministries. "There is a cover-up."

"There are three possible offences: disturbing religious assemblies, stupefying in order to commit a misdemeanour, and even assault," Mr Rwakafuuzi said.
