Pentecostal Church in Kiruhura Demolished
Christians under King of Kings Pentecostal church in Sanga Nyabushozi Kiruhura district are in fear after their church was allegedly demolished by unknown assailants on Monday 31, 2020.
Bishop Silas Tayebwa, who is the senior pastor of the mother church King of Kings Mbarara has revealed that the land where the church sits had previously been given out to money lenders as collateral security by a pastor who is now at large and the matter is in court.
One of the suspects identified as Yasin Sango who is the creditor had agreed with the church to be paid shs 1 million and later to shs500.000 until the church completes the 9 million debt but when he returned from Luzira prison, under unclear circumstances despite facing murder charges, he demanded full pay.
Bishop Silas said when they received news of the church being down they thought it was wind, only to find Yasin at the scene warning them not to access the land.
‘We have reported to the police/government and we need justice, Kiruhura leaders and others should come to our rescue,’ the man of God added.
Investigations are underway under SD 11/1/Sep 2020.
