Former miss Uganda Stellah Nantumbwe aka Ellah has maintained that her relationship with Zoe Ministries’ Prophet Elvis Mbonye does not go ‘beyond fellowship.’
Ellah, who recently threatened to drag to court seven media houses for allegedly publishing stories that she became pregnant for Prophet Elvis Mbonye after the pastor gifted her with a car months ago, also added that she is in a ‘happy committed relationship’.
“I am currently in a relationship. That is true. However I am staying true to myself. I believe there is a need to establish and protect my personal life away from the media and the public,” she told a local daily. “It’s my right as any other Ugandan. I am in a happy committed relationship and no, it’s not prophet Elvis Mbonye as media outlets have been falsely speculating recently. I am determined to protect the people I love and also enjoy the opportunity to build a relationship away from the prying eyes of the media and the public.”
In her notice to sue, Ellah said the stories written about her insinuated that she was an immoral and irresponsible person.
When asked whether there was something between her and the ‘man of God’, Ellah said she had never been in a relationship with Prophet Mbonye.
“I have attended Zoe Fellowship for a few years now. However, beyond the fellowship, I do not have any other relationship with Prophet Mbonye of any kind.”
She believes the whole story (that she was sleeping with Mbonye) was motivated by malice by either an individual or a group to run a campaign against her.
“Uganda is a country that has laws that guarantee certain rights and it is high time these laws were given effect,” she added.
