Police in Jinja arrested a top pastor for claiming supernatural powers that cure patients of dreaded diseases like HIV/AIDS and cancer.
Pastor Joseph Muwanguzi of the Holy Healing Centre, allegedly promises sick people that God will heal them if they pray to him.
People have been bringing him medical letters to be prayed for.
Instead of going for a medical operation, the pastor tells them to get spiritual healing.
He was picked early in the week and rushed to Jinja Police Station for interrogation.
Police locked down his church until further notice.
Some patients claim that the pastor has actually prayed for them to the extent that they were cured of AIDS.
Police told NTV that Muwanguzi has been keeping patients and refusing them from taking medicine (ARVs).
The pastor denied the allegation saying he tells them to stay on medicine and even feed well.
Police is still investigating the matter.
