THE commission of inquiry into witchcraft claims against Namirembe Christian Fellowship Church Pastor Simeon Kayiwa (right), officially concluded its work on Thursday.

However, The New Vision could not get the findings from the committee appointed by the National Fellowship of Born Again Churches of Uganda (NFBAC) by press time because a full report was yet to be compiled.

NFBAC spokesman, who is also the Pastor of Christ Witness Church, Ntinda, Dr. Abed Bwanika, on Thursday said the six-man religious leaders’ commission that started work on May 9 “would first write down its findings before releasing the report in a few days.”
“We will notify the media as soon as we’re ready,” Bwanika said.

Bishop Pastor Morris Bukenya of Eden Revival Church, Wandegeya, chaired the commission.

Pastor Martin Ssempa, a member of the commission, said on phone that the probe team interviewed Pastor Kayiwa last Monday.

“That’s all I can say because I am under oath. You will get the rest when the report comes out,” he said.

Pastor Kayiwa, formerly the chairperson of the NFBAC was accused by Rochelle Gibler, author of ‘The Power of Miracles,’ of using witchcraft to punish those opposed to him.
She also accused him of participating in satanic practices including human sacrifice.

Kayiwa on May 5 requested that he be allowed to “take a short leave” to enable the internal probe into the witchcraft allegations levelled against him to commence. Pastor Dr. Joseph Sserwadda of the Victory Christian Centre, Ndeeba, was subsequently appointed acting chairperson.

Gibler, whose accusations hit headlines prominently in the local press, was to testify to the commission of inquiry via the Internet tele-conference facility and on the telephone.

Kayiwa earlier said he would respond to the allegations through prayer and was confident that the accusations would not move him.
