Police has dismissed as untrue reports circulating on social media and claiming city Pastor Aloysius Bujingo has been arrested.
The reports claimed Bujingo was picked Sunday morning as he was preparing to preside over Sunday Service at his church in Makerere Kikoni.
He was allegedly “whisked away in a police van and the prayer grounds have been surrounded by Police and the Military”.
“No, we have not arrested any one from the church,” Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police Spokesperson Lucas Owoyesigyire told edge.ug.
He said prayers are going on normally.
“Not true,” deputy police spokesperson, Polly Namaye, also confirmed to edge.ug.
“Though if there is a case for which he should be arrested, Police will do so. Nobody is above the law,” Namaye added.
This was further corroborated by police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, who said: “No information supporting any arrest.”
Bujingo is under heat from women activists who threatened to storm his church and throw sanitary pads at him.
He is accused of shaming his wife Teddy Naluswa whom he publicly undressed as having bled from her private parts for 10 years in their 29-long marriage.
Apparently, security deployed to secure the church against demonstrators who threatened to attack it.
“Actually there was deployment to counter suspected groups planning to breach the peace and safety of worshipers this morning. It was a proactive approach,” Enanga told edge.ug.
