Self-proclaimed ‘Pastor’ William Muwanguzi aka Kiwedde has been arrested in Zimbabwe by Interpol Uganda working with its counterparts in Zimbabwe.

AIGP Asan Kasingye the director Interpol Uganda said that Kiwedde has been living as a fugitive in Zimbabwe, but through corroboration with their counterparts, they have been able to arrest him.

“Kiwedde is now in Uganda waiting charges of escaping from lawful custody.” Kasingye said.

Kiwedde escaped from Mutukula prison in Rakai District last year where he was held after being found guilty of impersonation.

Prosecution alleged that, posing as a Catholic priest from Kenya, Muwanguzi who called himself Paul Mwamba organized an unauthorized Charismatic Prayer Service at Nabisere Hotel in Kalisizo Town Council with intent to extort money from unsuspecting residents.

He further claimed he would heal diseases like Cancer, Epilepsy, and HIV/AIDs during the service.

He added that he would also cure blindness and make those who are barren fertile.

However, catholic Priests from Matale Parish tipped off police which arrested him along with his colleague Julius Mukasa and later produced him to court.

He was later remanded until 26th November 2013.

In 2014 Pastor William Muwanguzi, tried twice to escape from prison, but later succeeded and went to Zimbabwe through Tanzania
