A man who claims he is Jesus Christ, Emmanuel Solomon Ssemakula, has been arrested by the Police in Uganda. The self-proclaimed ‘price of peace’ is said to be sabotaging government programmes as he instructs his followers to avoid medications and cooked food when ill. All they are to do is to pray to him to be healed. He has conned several people using the name of Jesus.

He was arrested and detained alongside his 9 followers. Police officer Lamech Kigozi, on Saturday, July 2, said the self-proclaimed Emmanuel would be charged to court for leading a cult.
“We are currently looking at a charge of convening an unlawful society.When they fall sick, they only kneel and pray and ask for blessing from this earthly Jesus (Solomon Ssemakula),” Kigozi told NTV Uganda.

Despite all the said charges, Solomon Ssemakula still maintains that he is Jesus and he is not afraid to say it out publicly. His ardent followers too believe him. Solomon Ssemakula is said to have claimed he was preparing his followers for the second coming of his father. He is gathering about 144,000 people for the said coming. See the video below as he says he is the prince of peace and that he was born by the holy spirit in Jerusalem:
