Renowned Congolese pastor, Paul Mukendi, has been found guilty of a 9-count charge of sexual assaults.
The senior pastor of Parole De Vie Evangelical Church was said to have assaulted his victim for a period of 14 years, dating from 2002 to 2016.
The 31-year-old victim said she came into his care after her mother gave her as an offering to him when she was still an under-aged teenager.
While Pastor Paul Mukendi claimed that the victim is “motivated by financial gain”, she stood her ground as the trial began on June 4
The Congolese Pastor was found guilty by the Jury, as other women came forward with their own claims about being sexually abused.
Judge Jean-François Émond who denied his lawyer’s request for him to be released pending his sentencing in September, opted for immediate detention.
