Statement on Police Report about Ps. Kayanja’s Sodomy case

August 13, 2009

We are shocked at the conclusions of the Police report about Kayanja’s Sodomy case. The credibility of the investigations and the biased stand of the police leave many unanswered questions on the report. The same statement that the police made before is the same as in this report.

Everyone remembers well that even before investigations were started police already had a position. In the Sunday Vision of 17th May, 2009, the CID Chief described the allegations as baseless”, “fabricated” and “full of lies”. He also claimed that “…all six complainants who reported to the Police have retracted their complaints, saying they were set up by some pastors.” These statements were proved wrong when the complainants came up and said they had not retracted any statement.

The final report also based its investigations on Samson Mukisa, who the on Sunday 17th May 2009 appeared on UBC TV – Family Hour and said he had been forced to change his statement on gun point. Samson was later taken into police custody forcefully and denied access to a lawyer. He was then disguised and made to sign an extra- judicial statement.

The conduct of police with Samson Mukisa should be investigated and prosecuted. Now we are hearing Mukisa who is in police custody and Brain Ntwatwa being used on Super Fm to continue with the false allegations. Super Fm belongs to Ps. Ssematimba a colleague of Ps. Kayanja. The credibility of Samson Mukisa as a basis of the investigations makes the whole investigation biased following the way he was treated by police in the month of May.

The recommendations of police to prosecute the good Samaritans who helped the victims of sodomy to access justice and a credible hearing is misguided and sets a strong precedence that anyone who helps victims either of sexual abuse or accidents will be prosecuted. Therefore people are will stop giving a helping hand to anyone in danger or a victim of any circumstance.

The truth is that we had a credible reason to believe that what the victims were saying was true. It was not isolated evidence but a group of victims who had corresponding evidence said they were sodomized and joined by others to testify to the same.

However, this battle is not against Ps. Robert Kayanja, but a much bigger problem in the church. We have Pastors driving stolen cars, stealing mobile phones, stealing people’s money, defiling young girls, carrying guns into church, sodomizing boys, smuggling and several others. The Public and God are looking for Repentance and not defense of reputations.

We have written to the President on this matter and we appeal to parliament to help him to set up an independent commission of inquiry on this issue.
We shall continue to stand in confidence and boldness to fight the evils in our land of defilement, sodomy, child sacrifice, corruption and moral decay and we call upon everyone to pray with us to save our nation

Wow,

the sodomy saga continues. the church tears itself apart in recriminations and flames of hate.

We watch and wonder... Amazed.

I think you will find that in law, any law, there can be no crime without a complainant.

Ssempa put up the complainants and the latest record says that they retracted their complaints. Worse, the record also states that the complainants were put up and coached as to what to say.

Unless Ssempa has other, definitive, evidence, that shows that there was pedophile homo-sodomy or that young men were sodomized against their wishes, he has to put up or shut up.

And as for Ssempa being some sort of spiritual messiah, that is a matter of opinion that is, however, irrelevant to the civil/criminal case to hand.

Keep to the written statements and debunk the police report related to them. That is what really matters now.

Pastor Ssempa - Could you please make clear your position regarding the Anti-Homosexuality Bill of 2009?

Poor Ssempa has problems of his own. You see, he is now an accused criminal!

So, I doubt that anyone sensible will be much interested in what an accused criminal has to say about an issue over which he is accused of criminal conspiracy.
