Black crime: A self-proclaimed spiritual healer who targeted devout Christians has been jailed for sexually assaulting two women who visited him for help
Alain Bhatupa, 37, called himself ‘The Prophet Alain’ during appearances on a satellite television channel which he used as a platform to peddle his bogus healing techniques. A court heard two women approached him at his television station office after watching him promoting healing during his regular slot on the religious Wonderful TV channel. Bhatupa was jailed for nine years at Harrow Crown Court in North London, almost a month after he was convicted of five counts of sexual assault. Bhatupa is Congolese.
