How Can You Call Me A Rapist And Land Grabber: Pastor Ssenyonga Drags Yiga To Court

Published

on

The war between born-again pastors, prophets and apostles is not going to end very soon.

The latest one involves pastor Augustine Yiga of Kawala based Revival Christian Centre and pastor Jackson Senyonga of Bwaise based Christian Life Church (CLC).

Senyonga has taken Yiga to court for defaming him.

According to the documents filed at Kampala High Court civil division, Senyonga alleges that Yiga, through one of his sermons on his ABS television station, uttered defamatory statements against him. In his affidavit, Senyonga stated that in August last year, Yiga called him a land grabber who fraudulently took land around Makerere and Bwaise which the Pastor Balabyeekubo (RIP) had left for his remaining children and constructed his church (CLC) on it.

Senyonga added that on the same day, Yiga told his flock that Ssenyonga is a rapist who raped a young girl on a plane.

Yiga told his followers that Senyonga is an immoral person who is not supposed to be with children, a convict who was imprisoned in USA for seven years for defiling a young American girl and a fugitive who needs to be arrested.

In his affidavit, Senyonga asked court to declare all the utterances made against him by Yiga false by forcing Yiga retract them. Senyonga also wants Yiga to pay him damages caused by his false claims plus pay him costs incurred in filling this case.

Senyonga’s suit deepens the war between the two pastors after Senyonga led a group of pastors who disowned Yiga as a born-again pastor.

Yiga was given 15 days to file his defense. The case has not yet been allocated to a judge.
