Bad, Bad Ronnie Badda!

Pastor in trouble over ‘sowed’ car

The Police have arrested Pastor Ronnie Badda and his wife Betty for allegedly conning a follower of her car and property worth millions of shillings. Badda and his wife were arrested from their church, Jesus Liberty Praising Centre International, in Biina-Luzira, a city suburb, on Sunday.

A witness said there was drama when the Police arrested the couple at around mid-day, leaving the believers confused.

The couple had eluded the Police, which first stormed the church last Thursday.

The Police interrogated the couple for five hours over claims that they used deceit to take Milly Akello’s car, two mobile phones, a fridge, a watch and other household items.

Badda and his wife were later released on Police bond. They reported at the station on Monday for further questioning.

The Kira Road Police Station crime chief, Grace Akullo, said Akello filed the case three weeks ago.

Akello, a resident of Luzira, claims that the couple lured her to ‘sow’ her car and property as a way to help salvage a relationship with her boyfriend in 2005.

“They told me that our relationship would recoup and end into a marriage, which never happened. “All of a sudden, they changed and started telling me that God had revealed to them that he was not the right man for me. They told me that they would get me another man and I refused,” narrated Akello.
