Mwanga 11 magistrates court has further remanded at Luzira prison Herbert Kaddu who allegedly threatened to attack the Bishop of Namirembe Diocese Rt Rev Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira as he was giving this year’s Easter service.
This follows the Luzira Prison Official’s failure to bring the suspect to court in time.
Today Kaddu was to hear his bail application but this did not take place because he was brought at the court when grade one magistrate Julius Mwesigye had already adjourned his case to a later date.
Kaddu has been remanded until the 14th of May this year .
34 year old Herbet Solomon Kaddu a Tour and travel driver and a resident of Mackay Zone in Mengo Lubaga division was on the 4th of April charged with three counts of disturbing religious assemblies and denied the charges.
He is charged with threatening violence by intending to annoy or injure Bishop Luwalira and Rev. Canon Benon Kityo ; the dean of Namirembe Diocese.
Meanwhile a police medical report adduced in court also disputed claims by Kaddu’s family member in which they had claimed that he was mentally unstable but the report instead declared him sane and fit to stand trial.
Prosecution led Roselyn Kipora states that on 1st of April 2017 during an Easter service at Namirembe Cathedral, Kaddu while armed with a stick and a sack cloth , threatened to attack Bishop Luwalira amidst the congregation .
The Bishop is said to have been miraculously saved by a bar at the alter which trapped Kaddu causing him to fall down and later whisked off by worshipers.
