Little Sam, US pastor who has been coordinating the miracle cure program in Uganda, was arrested in Fort Portal town yesterday.
Sam and two other Ugandans had opened a branch known as Global Healing Christian Missions in Foprt Portal.
The three were arrested from their church in Kitembe village Karambi sub county Kabarole district where police carried out a search and found sacks and boxes of unlabelled bottles with the suspected miracle solution.
They claimed that the miracle concoction allegedly cures malaria and a host of other diseases.
During interrogation the suspects admitted that they are coordinating a program under the funding of Pastor Robert Baldwin who is based in the United States and who directed them to run the program of giving “miracle solution” to Christians.
They claimed that the miracle solution was a vision by Pastor Robert Baldwin aimed at ridding Uganda of malaria using mineral water.
They told police that they started the program at the grassroots level with plans of extending it further to other levels.
The “miracle solution” has been trending on social media platforms and some people had cautioned that it is harmful to people’s health.
The US embassy issued a statement on social media this week condemned the miracle cure as being dangerous and warned people not to fall for it.
The Rwenzori West police spokesperson Lydia Tumushabe confirmed the arrest.
