Interpol has joined the Ugandan Police in investigating the origin of an electric shock device which was imported by a pastor.
The CID acting commissioner of crime, Elly Womanya, yesterday explained that they had requested their counterparts in the UK to contact Korji’s mother over the matter.
“We are trying to get in touch with those who sent it,” Womanya said by phone yesterday.
Korji’s lawyer, Augustus Ssewankambo, last week told journalists that his mother, who lives in the UK, sent the ‘Electric Touch’ device to her 17-year-old-granddaughter.
Made by Yigal Mesika, the device electrifies any person who puts it on.
The electrified person transfers the power to any other person they touch.
According to the Police, Korji wanted to dupe his followers into thinking that he has supernatural powers by using the machine.
The Police last week announced that experts of explosives would examine the device.
Meanwhile, Korji was expected to reappear at the CID headquarters in Kampala yesterday. Ssewankambo could not be reached for a comment yesterday.
