Mbuya Catholic Church is contemplating firing Fr. Paulino Twesigye who hired a witchdoctor to kill the family of former Woman Member Of Parliament for Kanungu district, Jacqeuline Kyatuhaire.
Kyatuhaire and her family members; Odelia Mulungi, Jean Kabarungi, Jenifer Kyomugisha and Pascal Mwesigye have requested the inspector General of Police, Kale Kayihura, to avail them with security after unknown people allegedly started trailing them.
The family opened a case of attempted murder under file Ref.SD 7/23/5/15 and GEF 101/2015 against Fr. Twesigye, the head of Mbuya catholic.
“We have requested Kayihura to intervene in our matters because if they remain unresolved, something bad may happen to us,” said Mulungi.
Kayihura forms team to handle the matter
As we have learnt, Kayihura instructed a team from police land protection unit comprising of Commandant ACP Julius Twinomujuni, his Deputy Charles Mutungi, PRO Emilian Kayima and regional CIID Herbert Wanyoto to look into the matter.
The team spent last week investigating, interrogating and mediating the matter although the priest opted to avoid the meeting.
The priest is filthy rich
Fr. Twesigye made headlines after hiring Sulaiman Muyombwa, a local witch doctor from Masaka to murder the legislator’s family so as to grab their land and houses located in Mutungo.
Police was told the priest has accumulated wealth through dubious deals.
He has a flat no. 006, Block1 Flat C 8 Plot 33-41 Luthuli Rise in Bugolobi, 56 acres of land in Mukono, a big plot of land in Nalya, rental houses in Najjera and 80 acres of tea plantation in Kyamuhunga Bushenyi.
Police land Protection Unit spokesperson, Emilian Kayima, says his unit has dedicated to this case.
“We are still mediating the matter so the aggrieved members can agree to move on together without spilling blood,” Kayima said.
Now church elders from Rubaga have also picked interest in the matter and made an attempt to advise father.
They told him to stop all the wrong doings and settle matters with his relatives because if they remain unresolved, they would tarnish the image of the church and the parish that he is leading.
Efforts to reach Father Paulino for a comment on his well-known contact never yielded much as he said that we should talk to those who gave us the information.
“I can’t talk to the press,” he said and then went off.
Meanwhile, church leaders have threatened to do away with him if this matter gets out of hand.
