Kampala- A man claiming to be a pastor has contested paternity tests confirming that he is the biological father of a child he had with one of his followers.
Pr Job Inawole Olusegun, a Nigerian mission pastor attached to a local church in Kampala, denied fathering the said child on grounds that he had a single sexual encounter with Robinah Nadunga and that she could not get pregnant.
Paternity test results released on March 13, and signed by Principle Government Analyst Geoffrey Onen confirmed that Pr Olusegun is the biological father of Nadunga’s child.
“A statistical analysis carried out and the calculated paternity index indicates that the DNA evidence is more times likely that Pr Olusegun is the biological father of the child than unrelated untested man in the population,” reads a DNA report.
Upon release of the DNA results, Magistrate Moses Nabende briefed the pastor on the findings and his responsibility.
However, the pastor insisted that he is not the biological father, claiming that the results were concocted before asking court to allow him carry out a separate set of results but this time from outside the country (South Africa).
Pr Olusegun in his affidavit in response to the complainant indicated that he is a family man as he accused Ms Nadunga of being on a mission to tarnish his name.
“…I have never at any one time stayed with the complainant under the same roof as I am a happily married man with two children,” said the pastor.
“I have been living in Wandegeya, Katanga, with my family under the same roof since November, 2010. Attached is a certificate of marriage from the Republic of Nigeria,” he stated in the affidavit.
Separate test
In order to clear his doubts, court has now given Pr Olusegun a chance to carry out his separate DNA test in South Africa.
The background
Documents before City Hall Court where this case is lodged show that Ms Robinah Nadunga came to know Pr Olusegun when she started praying from his church, Rescue Mission International Ministry, a Pentecostal church based in Katanga, a city suburb.

But after some time, Ms Nadunga claims she started cohabiting with the man of God and they were blessed with one child.
Their love, however, turned sour when the pastor decided to evict her from the house in which they were staying.

He also refused to provide maintenance for his child. Ms Nadunga then decided to report Pr Olusegun to Kampala Capital City Authority’s probation office to force the pastor to own upto his esponsibilities. The matter was later forwarded to City Hall Court.
