Pastor William Muwanguzi investigated

I am reading more stories out of Africa these days. I don’t know why, although I suspect that Google is sucking up more African based news sources. I know some of it stems from the recent media focus on American Christian meddling on the continent.

Pastor William Muwanguzi is under investigation for allegedly raping an 18-year-old student.

According to sources, the girl narrated her ordeal to another Pastor, who reported the matter to a minister. Subsequently, The New Vision learnt, the minister had ordered for a probe.

In an interview, the teenager, an orphan, alleged that she met Muwanguzi at his church in May where she had gone for financial help. “I had heard him over the radio saying that he could assist to people with financial difficulty,” the girl said, adding that Muwanguzi asked her to meet him ong Kabakanjagala Road in Mengo.

He allegedly drove her to a secluded place near Sseguku in Kampala, where he raped her.

If true, it’s a sad story, and a sad commentary too. American style Christianity an export. We own this, even if we don’t like to read about it.
