Self-claimed Pastor Paul Muwanguzi, commonly known by his followers as Kiwedde has been arrested in Zimbabwe about a year after he broke out of prison.
Kalisizo Grade One magistrate Suzan Awidi had convicted Muwanguzi and sentenced him to two years in jail over impersonation and an additional three years on charges of attempted break-out from Kalisizo prison where he was on remand.
However, barely two years after serving his sentence, Muwanguzi in October last year escaped from Mutukula prison and ran to Zimbabwe through Tanzania.
His escape came a month after he had been relocated from the overcrowded Masaka Regional Main Prison to Mutukula in Rakai District.
Before his unprecedented escape, he gave the excuse of being sick and was eventually left behind to clean the ward and took advantage of lax security at the prison to find a way out of jail.
Mr Hassan Kasingye, the director of International Police directorate in Uganda confirmed the ‘pastors’ arrest.
Local publicatuions in Zimbabwe reported that the pastor was arrested for flouting immigration laws and possessing a fake passport in the names of David Mubiru. He was picked from Zimbabw’es southern state of Waterfalls where he was operating a Holy Fire Ministries Church along with a fellow Ugandan.
