Solomon Semakula, the self-styled Jesus Christ from Nakaseke district, appeared before Kiwoko Grade I Magistrates court on Monday and was charged with belonging to an unlawful society contrary to section 56( 1) and (2)(a) of the Penal code act and managing an unlawful society contrary to section 57 of the penal code act.
He was arrested along with eight of his followers early this month following complaints from some people in his area of residence.
His followers whom he calls disciples like Jesus Christ of Nazareth were also remanded.
Apparently, the humble looking, tall ‘black Jesus’ lost his parents when he was young. He was then adopted by a bishop who took him to Kenya to study Theology. Upon his return, Semakula started his own church prophesying about events which sometimes would come to pass, according to his followers.
However, some people became scared when he started prophesying about their death promoting them to report to authorities.
He would tell them to follow him or die.
After the court session in which he was remanded, Semakula said those persecuting him will suffer the wrath of his father God who sent him.
“I told you that I’m the word and the word is me but you have continued to persecute me. I was sent by my father God who will judge you harshly for all you are doing to his son,” he said
