State House Anti-Corruption Unit (SHACU) on Sunday arrested Sirajje Ssemanda a lead Pastor at Revival Ministries Church, Bombo at Mutukula as he attempted to flee the country.
Over Shs4 billion has been defrauded by him on promises of getting them scholarships, trips abroad and connecting them to Operation Wealth Creation.
“Mr. Sirajje Ssemanda of Revival Ministries Church, Bombo has been arrested for allegedly defrauding over 400 private school owners and thousands of parents of vulnerable children, over Shs4 billion on promises of getting them scholarships, trips abroad and connecting them to Operation Wealth Creation,” said the Anti-Corruption Unit in a statement.
The Unit leader Lt Col Edith Nakalema said her team will work jointly with Police’s Criminal Investigations Directorate to expedite the investigations.
“He is a thief, whoever is associated with him is risking. Why I am judging like that before investigations is that there is proof of him taking people’s money without giving them anything,” Nakalema said.
