CRIME
 
A  top Church of Uganda Clergy in Luweero Diocese has been remanded by
Luweero court.
 
Rev.Can. Kezekia Kalule, aged 62 is alleged to have defiled a sixteen year old primary six  girl  who was under his care.
 
The Archdeacon of Luteete Church of Uganda Archdeaconry in Bamunanika county, on Tuesday appeared before Luweero Chief Magistrate Jane Hatanga who remanded her until June 5 when the case is coming up for further mention.
 
Prosecution alleged that the accused, a renowned and long serving Church of Uganda clergy ,committed the offence during the month of October 2017 when he allegedly defiled and imprignated a 16-year-old girl who was under his care.
 
The elderly clergy who is charged with aggravated defilement was not allowed to take his plea because of the capital nature of the offence that he is charged with.
 
Kalule who has been on a police bond, was first arrested shortly after
the complaint reached police earlier this year, but had been released on police bond
which the police cancelled and re-arrested him on Tuesday.
 
The Clergyman who had on Tuesday turned up at Luweero police station
to renew his police bond in company of his wife, got stunned when he was instead handcuffed and taken to the nearby Luweero court where he was charged and remanded.
 
According  to  the police case  file number CRB  22/2018 ,the  alleged victim
who was under the care of the clergy ,was later on found to be pregnant and when she was  interrogated  by her parents,she revealed that she had been impregnated  by Rev Kalule.
 
The Luweero Diocesan Vicar, Rev. Mifbosses Musisi said that after
receiving the complaint, the diocesan authorities summoned him on two occasions during which he denied the allegations, claiming that he was being framed by detractors.
