A Pentecostal Church pastor in Mbale is in police custody for allegedly defiling and impregnating two teenagers from the same family. 

Pastor Israel Wamoto of Prayer Alter Church in Mbale district was picked up on Tuesday on a tip-off by concerned residents. 
It is alleged that the Pastor picked 14 and 17-year-old victims from their parents in Bunamono village in Luhongye sub-county in Mbale district to pray for them but instead turned them into his wives.

Paul Welishe, the children’s father narrates that his daughter started praying in Wamoto’s church and the pastor assured him of their safety. However, Welishe says that as days went by the teenagers started skipping returning home.  

Wamoto disappeared with the 17-year-old girl last year and only returned after a long search. They later discovered that she was cohabiting with the pastor, which prompted them to notify the police who arrested him. 

Welishe says that upon interrogation, the teenager told police that the pastor was sleeping with her together with her little sister.

The pastor is currently being held at Mbale District Police Headquarters in Busoba sub-county as investigations are ongoing.
