A pastor in Uganda has not spared his congregants who missed his previous service.

In the viral video, the congregants were seen lying down while the 'supposed man of God' passed around with a whip and as he flogs them, they would get to take up their seat.

Kenyan radio station, Wish FM, shared the video with the caption:

“Pastor Paul Muwanguzi canes his followers who didnt turn up for church service the previous Sunday. But Uganda why??”

The Kenyan FM station added that t he was in prison in 2013 for impersonating a Catholic Priest.

After serving part of the term, he broke out of jail in 2014 to hide in Zimbabwe where he was later deported back to Uganda to finish his term with an additional two years.
