BY: Eyalama In Politics On

Police on Sunday deployed at Pastor Aloysius Bugingo’s church in Makerere Kikoni, sparking off speculation that the controversial pastor had been arrested.

The police and the military surrounded the church in the morning, causing panic among worshippers going for Sunday Service. A social media post which police have since described as fake news, immediately made rounds indicating that Bugingo had been arrested.

“Bugingo was whisked away in a police van and the prayer grounds have been surrounded by police and the military,” the post circulated on the various social media platforms indicated. While police denied arresting the pastor, they confirmed deployment around his church.

Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga said the deployment was meant to secure the church worshippers. “Actually there was deployment to counter suspected groups planning to breach the peace and safety of worshippers on Sunday morning,” he said. Enanga added that security will keep monitoring the situation at the church.

Pastor Bugingo who is also the proprietor for Salt Media (Salt TV and Salt Radio) has of recent been in the news for seeking divorce with his officially married wife, Teddy Bugingo. The same pastor in the year 2017 sparked controversy when he set alight copies of the King James version of the Bible over use of the word “Holy Ghost”.

He stirred more trouble earlier this week when he claimed to have tolerated his wife Teddy, whom he said had bleeding complication in her private parts. Bugingo’s remarks attracted wide raging criticism from women activists and other feminists, with some threatening to storm his church to deliver pads to him in expression of anger over his outrageous remarks.
