Pastor Wilson Bugembe Accused of Illegally Adopting Children From Kisenyi .


Renown City Pastor, Wilson Bugembe is back in the limelight after several families from Kisenyi accused him of illegally adopting their Children.

According to parents of the adopted children allege that Pastor Wilson Bugembe blindsided them in the process which led to their children being taken away to foreign countries without their consent.

The most recent Bugembe adoption scandal emanated over 10 years ago When a Pastor’s NGO named Mercy Childcare Uganda started taking up Young Children and putting them up for adoption by families mostly from the USA.

One of the parents of the adopted children identified as Moses Mwanamboka, stressed that Bugembe’s Organisation picked his daughter identified as Joyce Alitubbeera way back in 2011 who was only 6 months at the time of her adoption with whom he had sired an underage girl, who had to leave him under family pressures, leaving Joyce behind.

He disclosed that one of Bugembe’s agents called Apostle Winfred approached him and offered to extend support and take care of his daughter through Bugembe’s NGO.

Over the next months, he was allowed to go and check on his daughter and he found her living happily with other almost 8 kids.


Eventually however, learnt that his daughter was taken from the homecare to go and stay with an American couple in Kansanga but he found out that his daughter’s name had been changed from Alitubbeera to Naya with his knowledge.

Moses further narrated that at one time he was invited to the United States Embassy and told to sign some more papers and at the time they started mentioning the term ” adoption” and he was unaware of its meaning.

“For me, I thought “adoption” was the name of the person who was taking care of my child”, Moses said.

About three years later, he says, the organization sent him money to look for the baby’s mother, which he did successfully.

But from that time to this date, he says, he never got to see his child or the mother again and later he learnt that his daughter was transferred to the United States.

In response to the ongoing allegations, Pastor Wilson Bugembe admitted that it is true, that some mistakes were made with some of the adoption processes, in regards to guiding the parents.

He noted that however, all the legal processes were followed to the letter.

“The other good thing is that all these children are alive and well, I have checked,” he said.

For recourse, Bugembe said the courts granted the adoptions with provisions that allow disgruntled parents to have their children back if they so wish.
