Ssali Kilimba Mwaka

Fear of Mass Deaths in Uganda
Police in Central Uganda have arrested “Prophet” Ssali [sic] Kilimba Mwaka, suspecting that he may be leading his following toward a disaster of the kind that occurred several years ago when almost 1,000 devotees of a doomsday cult in Kanungu, Northern Uganda, died. There were so many gathered at Kilimba’s healing center, a “Holy Rock” where he talks to God, said police, that “We could not wait for another Kanungu to happen, so we moved in and arrested him, and he is about to face the law.” (Herbert Ssempogo [sic], New Vision, Kampala, Internet, 5/5/05) [csr 4.2 2005]
