Mbale City journalist Benson Mukisa has been arrested at the Mbale Central Police Station over allegations of flying a drone during a religious event without proper authorization.

Mukisa, a freelance journalist who focuses on audio-visual and documentary work, is under investigation on suspicion of plotting a terrorist attack against pastor Aloysius Bujjingo at a prayer event.

Mukisa was arrested on Friday at the Mbale Senior Secondary School grounds, where pastor Bugingo of the House of Prayer Ministries International was leading a prayer night event.

Bujjingo’s security team accused Mukisa of flying a drone at the religious gathering without permission.

“My family and I cannot access our home since even the house keys were in the drone bag, which was taken to Kampala by Pr. Bujjingo’s security.”

“I beg our beloved man of God Pr Bujjingo to help my family by intervening in my husband’s situation because he is innocent.”

“My husband sought clearance to film the prayer event from the security at the entrance and they permitted him, only to be inhumanely taken to the Mbale CPS moments later. He is our breadwinner and helping him regain his freedom will do us a favour,” Pascal Ester the wife to Mukisa said as quoted by New Vision.
