Reverend Canon Kezekiah Kalule, an Archdeacon attached to Luteete Archdeaconry and Geoffrey Sserunkuuma, the lay leader of Bbowa Church of Uganda in Makulubita Sub County in Luweero district are in trouble for alleged defilement.
Luweero Police accuses the duo of allegedly defiling minors under their care. Paul Kangave, the Savannah Region Police Spokesperson, says Kalule is wanted for defiling a 16-old- pupil of Luteete Primary School who has been under his custody since 2007.
Sserunkuma on the other hand is also wanted for defiling a 17-year- old pupil of Bbowa Primary School in Makulubita Sub County. Kangave explains that the two girls were living with the priests and were sponsored by Compassion international, an organization attached to the church.
However, URN has learnt that matter was brought to the attention of the Bishop of Luweero Diocese, Bishop Eridard Nsubuga who has since replaced the Archdeacon Kezekiah Kalule with Reverend Geoffrey Kasana pending investigations.
URN tried to reach Bishop Eridard Nsubuga for a comment but his known mobile phone number was switched off. This is not the first time police is hunting church leaders in Luweero for defilement.
Recently, Police in Bamunanika picked up Yekoyada Nsubuga, the lay leader of St. Phillip Bajjo Church of Uganda for allegedly defiling a 13-year-old girl at Nkuluze village in Bamunanika Sub County.
