PASTOR Simeon Kayiwa, the embattled chairperson of the National Fellowship of Born Again Churches of Uganda, has stepped aside pending an internal probe into allegations of witchcraft levelled against him.

A statement issued yesterday said the executive committee of the National Fellowship of Born Again Churches (NFBAC) held a meeting during which a commission of inquiry was set up to probe the allegations made by an American woman, Rochelle Gibler.

Pastor Morris Bukenya of Eden Revival Church, Wandegeya, will chair the inquiry, the statement said, adding that the probe shall take 30 days.

Following the establishment of the inquiry yesterday at Lweza Training and Conference Centre, Kayiwa requested that he be allowed to “take a short leave,” the statement said.
“The committee requests all people of God to be peaceful and allow the commission to do its job,” it added.

Pastor Dr. Joseph Sserwadda of the Victory Christian Centre, Ndeeba, was appointed acting NFBAC chairperson and Pastor Dr. Abed Bwanika of Christ Witness Church, Ntinda as the public relations officer.

Kayiwa, who heads Namirembe Christian Fellowship Church, was accused by Gibler, author of a book ‘The Power of Miracles’, of using witchcraft to punish those opposed to him.
