A PERVERT ex-teacher convicted of child porn offences has been banned from traveling to Uganda, following police concerns about his contact with vulnerable children. On Thursday, a civil case was brought against 29-year-old Samuel Kinge, of Tyne Drive, Evesham in London. Police in London applied for a foreign travel order, asking magistrates to ban him from travelling to Uganda - after finding evidence he had traveled to Uganda twice and gave a £1,000 donation to an orphanage near Kabale district. The court heard how Kinge - who had taught religious education at a primary school in Wellesbourne, Warwickshire - had prior to his arrest and bail, visited Uganda in October 2008, where he stayed for a month, and again in May 2009, for just over four weeks. The police also found evidence he intended to travel back to the county in October 2009. They found a receipt relating to a package sent by Kinge to Uganda in November 2009 which included a child's dress, coloring set, a piece of paper with the address of a primary school in Uganda and a leaflet relating to activities involving street children in Uganda. Police solicitor, Mandy Weston, said Detective Constable Amanda Walker had said Kinge had shown a high degree of premeditation and planning and his contact with vulnerable children in Uganda was cause for concern, as he could not be monitored. Patricia Richards, the Chair of the magistrates said Kinge had been banned from teaching children in the UK, yet had contact with children in Africa. She noted that while Uganda may well be a county where his behaviour may not be monitored, it's the court's belief that other children in other countries should be given the same safeguards and dignity. Kinge has been convicted twice for both making indecent images and possessing indecent images, the last occasion in 2009, when police seized his computer and he pleaded guilty to 17 counts of making indecent photographs of children. A probation officer in Worcestshire in the UK, told a magistrates court there that he was also concerned, why Kinge had not disclosed his trips to Uganda, and had openly admitted to her he was sexually aroused by the sight of children. In January this year the judge passed a 15-year sexual offences prevention order banning Kinge from using a computer unless it had a police detection programme installed. He was also barred from contact with children under the age of 16 and from working with them, and must sign the sex offenders' register for 10 years. He was also given a 12-month custodial sentence. Kinge will be unable to travel to the African county until October 13, 2015.
