One of the major Pastors in Congo identifed as Paul Mukendi, of Parole de Vie evangelical church in Quebec, Canada, has been found guilty of a 9-count charge of sexual assaults.
He was accused of the charge by a 31-year-old woman who came into his care after his mother “gave her as an offering” to him when she was still an under-aged teenager, had accused him of sexually assaulting her for 14 years (2002 to 2016).
Pastor Paul Mukendi claimed that the victim is “motivated by financial gain” and fabricated the entire story, she stood her ground as the trial began on June 4.
