It is wishful thinking for the Ugandan Govt to think that young boys in
are never sexually abused. Rather than commission an independent investigation
into these cases of sexual abuse, the Uganda Govt sought to Protect
Pastor Kayanja (The Man of God) at all costs...Child Sexual abuse is
nothing NEW. The USA
Catholic Church, Irish Catholic Church, Boy Scouts, Penn State University have
been dealing with these issues. Therefore for the UG Govt to simply hide their
head in the sand on this issue is absurd, and a cover-up at best...The point is that many
young boys will continue to be sexually molested by the powerful and NONE of
those cases will go reported because of fear and retribution from a Govt that
protects the powerful,and that is what is at stake here. Pray for your young UG
Six Pastor Kayanja sodomy accusers convicted

Pastor Kayanja, heads Lubaga Miracle Centre, in Kampala. His accusers claimed that he sodomised several youths at his church.
Pastors Solomon Male, Martin Ssempa, Michael Kyazze and Robert Kaira, together with Ms Deborah Anita Kyomuhendo, a businesswoman and David Mukalazi, a musician, were convicted by Buganda Road Grade I magistrate, Julius Borore.
Mr Borore sentenced them to a fine of Shs1 million each and community service of 100 hours or serve six months in prison upon failure to pay the fine and performing community service. Community service is where a convict is forced perform manual labour like digging, cleaning public facilities such as schools, collecting garbage among other chores.
The six are still being held in a holding cell at Buganda road court as they make up their minds. Meanhile Kayanja’s supporters are chanting outside court.
The magistrate said the case is sensitive in nature adding that genocides around the world have happened after the propagation of false information.
The case was first handled by Grade One magistrate John Patrick Wekesa and was later re-assigned to Julius Borore, after the former was accused of being bribed by Pastor Kayanja’s camp.
On August 8, Mr Borore denied the accused persons permission to pursue their appeal in the Court of Appeal. They had filed an application, challenging the decision of High Court judge, Lameck Mukasa, not to recall the 21 prosecution witnesses to sustain their case. Mr Borore ruled that the appeal was a delaying tactic to block delivery of justice.
Mr Kato Ssekabanja, who represented the convicts, said he has instructions from his clients to appeal.
