Outspoken cleric, Reverend Father Deogratias Kiibi Kateregga, 31, is expected to preside over a prayer mass organised by family, friends and supporters of jailed Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as Bobi Wine.
According to local media sources, the youthful Rubaga Cathedral priest who came to the lime light after the requiem mass of fallen artiste Mowzey Radio, will join multitudes who have since last week mounted pressure on government to expedite justice for Bobi Wine.
He was charged in a military court last Thursday for alleged possession of firearms and ammunition. He had been arrested in the north-western town of Arua, after clashes broke out during parliamentary campaigning for a by-election.
Kyagulanyi’s driver was shot dead in the violence. A group of four opposition MPs and 30 others who were arrested at the same time as Kyagulanyi appeared in a civilian court in Gulu to be charged with treason. Segona, the lawyer for the defendants, told the magistrate some of the accused had been “badly beaten and tortured during the process and after arresting them” by soldiers.
“We believe God still answers prayers,” celebrated television personality Douglas Lwanga said as he confirmed that the prayer service will happen Wednesday, 21st August 2018, at Rubaga Cathedral, 11am.
