Police on Monday foiled a demonstration against city Pastor Aloysius Bujingo who is on heat for insulting his wife Teddy Naluswa in public.
The House of Prayer Ministries pastor told a congregation that he tolerated Teddy in their marriage even when she had haemorrhage for 10 years.
Angry women activists gathered at Bat Valley Primary School in Kampala to walk to Parliament and deliver a petition to the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga.
The activists who displayed placards with inscriptions ‘Justice for women #Teddy deserves Justice’ while asking Uganda Communications Commission to restrain Bujingo.
They were however intercepted by police and arrested.
The suspects include eight women and one Edison Kakuru, the president Makerere University School of Education.
They are currently detained at Central Police Station in Kampala.
Activists had Sunday planned to buy cotton wool and sanitary pads and deliver them to his church as a pay back to those he used to buy for his wife.
Police had to deploy at his church fearing that the two groups would end up in a fight but the activists did not turn up.
