Pastor arrested over fraud, theft charges
by Eddie Ssejjoba

GOING by events of the past few weeks, the title pastor has acquired new connotations. First it was a Sunday Vision undercover story which revealed that some pastors were fleecing their flock.

Then the Police impounded a gadget that produces electric shocks and which they suspected is used to simulate the slaying by the Holy Spirit from another pastor. Shortly after, another pastor was accused of sodomy.

Now, the Police in Lyantonde have arrested yet another pastor formerly attached to Holy Fire Church of Pastor William Muwanguzi of Namulanda on charges of fraud, theft and obtaining money by false pretence. Paul Mbaziira, 30, who formed his own church, the Revival Word Ministries Church at Katovu along the Masaka-Mbarara road, was on Tuesday arrested at Kajjansi in Kampala following a tip-off.

The Criminal Investigations Department officer at Lyantonde Police Station, Opendi Osuna, said Mbaziira stole a Toyota Corolla car, registration number UAH 693L from Denis Kalamuzi, a businessman in Kampala and sold it to someone in Lyantonde. Osuna said that on June 25, Mbaziira allegedly hired the car saying he would use it to run his churchs activities in Kyazanga where he was staying, but later sold the car to Vincent Ssebitosi at sh1.35m.

4. You certainly do have an intense interest in
the petty crimes of Ugandans.

It is infinitely amusing that you're willing to comb the entire earth for stories to bludgeon Christianity with.

5. You're right. Considering the vast number of crimes committed by religious hypocrites of all stripes
... there really is no reason why I have to look all the way to Uganda for a plethora of stories.

But you gotta admit.

The dudes in Uganda sure do have some colorful stories.

6. Yeah, you already posted that one.
Into reruns now? BTW, I look forward to your series on criminal rabbis. I mean, you're concerned about "all stripes" right?

I usually get about ten brand new stories a day.

Please read that post above before whining to me about anything else.

Bigots and hypocrites come in all religions, and I dutifully report on them all.

Please don't crucify the messenger.

Maybe I'm wrong, but it appears you may be eager to have some Jews to point a guilty finger at, so that whatever persecuted sect of xianity you belong to won't look as bad by comparison. So I will oblige you. Here are a few. (I can't find the ones I posted about the rabbi who got caught trying to hire a hitman to kill his wife, but it's here on DU somewhere, I think).

If I don't report on "Rabbis Gone Wild" as often, it is not for lack of effort on my part.

Maybe it's because 84% of Jews are Liberal Progressives who vote Democrat, and that has something to do with bringing down their crime average. Or maybe it's just because there are not as many Rabbis and/or Jews around to commit crimes. I think I remember something happening around 1935-1945 in Europe that may have something to do with that.

If you come across examples of Rabbis molesting people or whatnot, please PM me and I will post if for you if you like.
