Pastor Yiga arrested over raping Ainembabazi

A woman  confirmed as Angel Ainembabazi  who hails from Bushenyi district says she has dragged Mr Yiga to Kawempe police for rape resulting into a child neglect.

Ainembabazi alleges that she was raped by Pastor Yiga when she had gone to for special prayers and to get a job.

“I came to his church when I was young so that they can pray for me and I get a job.”

She wanted money to further her studies. This happened at his then St Augustine Revival church Kawaala.

“He promised to pray for me at night, undress me and chase away the ghosts,” she narrated.

“They gave me a room and at around 2am, pastor Yiga came to pray for me. He touched me and pushed me. I fell on the bed. He overpowered me and raped me.”

They locked her in the same room for a day. The next day, Yiga sent her to South Sudan to start on her a new job.

 

“I wasn’t getting my periods four months later. I called him but the phone was being picked by others. When he finally picked, he said “we will see”. But then the phone went off. He changed it completely.

She added: “I gave birth and raised my child alone. He now wants to go to school and I don’t have school fees.”

By press time Pastor Yiga was still being held at Kawempe police station awaiting the out come of police investigations.

Many of his followers are camped demonstrating the lock up of their pastor.
