Uganda Human Rights Commission investigates Sodomy allegations

The pastors accused of defaming Pastor Robert Kayanja of Rubaga Miracle Center by alleging that he engaged in sodomy of some of his male followers have welcomed the intervention of the Uganda Human Rights Commission into the case.

Pastors Solomon Male of Arise for Christ, Martin Ssempa of Makerere Community Church and Mike Kyazze of Omega healing Center say it is important that the UHRC has started hearing cases of the young men who were allegedly sodomised.

Pastor Male said he appeared before the UHRC panel investigating the matter yesterday and gave them information on how the alleged sodomy victims approached him for help.

He says the pastors are ready to cooperate with the UHRC and the police to ensure the vice of sodomy and homosexuality in the church are being investigated.

Male was speaking today at Central Police Station where Pastor Kyazze was questioned over giving false evidence against Pastor Robert Kayanja by alleging that Kayanja is involved in sodomy. Male and Ssempa were questioned over the same matter last month.

Pastor Kyaze said the police and other authorities should focus on the young men who alleged they were sodomised by Pastor Kayanja and not the pastors who are helping the young men get justice. Kyazze says the police is treating the pastors as criminals yet they only demanded for justice for the alleged sodomy victims.
