Gunfire rocked Ibanda municipality last evening when police used live ammunition and teargas to disperse a group of agitated Christians attempting to vandalize Depths Ministries Church Kafunjo cell, Burundi Division.
The demonstration followed the death of Scovia Akankunda, who reportedly took her own life within the church belonging to Pastor Daniel Bukenya, protesting the nonpayment of the money she lent the pastor.
According to Colman Mulonde, the LC I Chairperson of Kafunjo cell, the deceased had been requesting the return of Shillings 16 million that she gave Pastor Bukenya in July, with a promise of paying back within two months.
Mulonde explained that Akankunda had been a regular attendee of prayers at Depths Ministries and decided to commit suicide by taking poison when the pastor declined to pay her money.
Mr. Mulonde speaking….
Samson Kasasira, the Rwizi Region Police spokesperson, told the press that they are actively searching for Pastor Bukenya as investigations into the matter continue. END.
