The Territorial Police in Mityana is investigating the circumstances under which Pastor Kalibala Samuel, disappeared with several of his church followers including a family of 7 members.
According to police, it is now seven days since the Pastor disappeared with the seven family members who include; Namuwaya Jesca, (the wife to Kintu Sulait), Ssekyewa Shakim, aged 19, Nampeewo Shifrah aged 17, Muteesasira Muhammad aged 10, Ssenabulya Muhammed aged 8, Nakintu Angel aged 4 and Uwuzeeye Mable.
Police says the above family members disappeared from their home in Naama Central LCI, Naama Ward, Busimbi Division, in Mityana Municipality.
”The pastor and his followers locked their homes and have since switched off their known contacts,” says Police adding, ”We are meanwhile following leads, after one of the followers, established contact with one of her daughters whom, she left behind.”
Police indicates that she immediately switched off the phones and did not reveal her whereabouts. ”It is unfortunate that we have a Pastor, who is not transparent in his methods and for using his divine powers, to control his followers. Such conduct has the potential of opening wounds for relatives to miss their loved ones, during the Kibwetere cult saga in Kanungu.”
Police says that so far three accomplices of Pastor Kalibala Samuel, who helped transport the victims have been arrested. These include; Harriet Kajubi, a 53-year-old teacher, Nalweyiso Harriet, a 62-year-old midwife, and Ssekyewa Shakim, an 18-year-old student.
