Pastor Charged for Immigration Offence

Wilberforce Sintim Kwako

A Ghanian citizen who is a pastor was busted at the P.G.I.A. for attempting to enter the country with another person’s passport. Forty year old Wilberforce Sintim Kwako was found in possession of an altered passport which contained a five-year U.S. visa. Kwako was detained on Tuesday morning after he arrived on an Avianca flight from El Salvador. The passport was in the name of Yaw Mensah and was issued on September second, 2006, expiring in 2016. When the passport was inspected, authorities realized that the bio data page had been altered.  The original photograph was removed and re-laminated.  The bio data page had no reaction under the ultra violet light.   The passenger who purported to be Mensah was denied entry. At this point, Kwako retrieved another passport stating that it contained his true identity. He was then escorted into custody and charged with using a document, which he was not entitled to use.  Kwako, who was unrepresented in court, appeared before Magistrate Ladonna John where he wasted no time and pleaded guilty and was fined one thousand dollars plus the cost of court of which he was ordered to pay forthwith, in default six months imprisonment. By the end of the day, Kwako was unable to make the payment and remained in Immigration custody.

    I TOLD YOU ABOUT THESE AFRICANS HOW CROOKED THEY ARE. THEY ALWAYS HAVE FALSE
    DOCUMENTS TO SAY THAT THEY ARE DOCTORS, NURSES, AND LAWYERS. WHICH THEY ARE NOT IN THEIR COUNTRY. SO THEY DECIDED TO COME AND FOOL THE BELIZEAN PEOPLE AND THEY FALL FOR IT. SAD, SEND ALL THEIR MADA RASS BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY.

    These are the kind of people who give God a bad name and turn people away from the church. Obviously he has an agenda that is not holy, or he would not have used another persons passport and name to enter the country. We will never know his motive of course, I will bet it was not for a Jesus cause. Send him home.

    First of all, you ignorant people,if don’t know a situation, DON’T speak on it. Talking about a man of God can get a curse on you. May the Lord be with you

  5. Akwasi says:

    Chale!!!!!!……So when do they intend to share this with his sheeepple…..nothing can be hidden under the sun forever……..

  6. katie says:

    May God have mercy on his servant. This man need a lot of prayer from love one. God bless.

  7. Nana says:

    This is in regards to Akwasi, excuse my languege, BUT YOU NEED TO SHUT YOUR %^&* UP. Have a blessed one :)

  8. Akwasi says:

    @Nana…..you obviously are connected to this man one way or another and based on your comments i can see that he impacted no moral values in you
    A man of God commiting criminal fraud obviously has no issues with commiting sin…..you all need to open your eyes and stop acting like brainwashed fools.

    May God help you all

    Wow!! why the insults? that’s really mature and Christian like. This is exactly why people get turned off by the church, as they see people claiming that they are Christians but their behavior and attitude shows who they really are. Akwasi has a valid question, being truthful and respectful to the sheeepple is the right thing to do. I guess some people like to stay in the state of denial, when the truth is in their face it bothers them. So sad! May God have mercy!!!

  10. AB says:

    Nana, how can you even make such a statement?
    talking about a man of God? did you consider that
    before he used another persons documents. why
    would a man of God put himself in such a situation in
    the first place. i wouls advice you dont say anything
    cus you are just making him look even worse.

  11. Adam says:

    Shameful!! I think it’s time for a career change!! Because this one is clearly over!!

  12. Adam says:

    Why was he trying to come here anyway?

  13. AB says:

    Adam, he’s actually been here for a while and went to Ghana and now him coming back was a problem. I dont know why it was if he’s a citizen or a legal resident of good conduct, there shouldn’t be any problem.

    By the way, he is in the country now, cant tell how it was possible but he sure is bk to continue to mislead all the members of his so called church. This incident should give them a wake-up call, smh.
