Man Jose Kayima

Mwanga II Court again denied Christian Life Church lead Pastor Jackson Senyonga’s head of security Israel Wasswa bail today afternoon.

Wasswa together with Jamil Mwanda we’re in the dock hoping to be released on bail but they were remanded until the 24th of August 2023.

Their lawyers failed to convince Judge Adams Byarugaba who ruled in favour of the State Attorney Jonathan Muwaganya who put up a solid fight.

“Wasswa is a convict and has just completed his sentence of aggravated robbery. Does it serve the public interest that a person with a staggering crime record should be granted bail?” Muwaganya pondered.

It should be remembered that Wasswa has been serving two years courtesy of aggravated robbery after the High Court found him guilty together with three of his former workmates.

The victim, Sam Mukula, a former member of Christian Life Church had to undergo operation twice at Mulago Hospital due to injuries inflicted on him by security personnel attached to the church which belongs to Pastor Jackson Senyonga led by Wasswa.

He also challenged the good citizenship conduct and documents of Wasswa’s two sureties; Simon Ssemujju And Godfrey Kalyango.

Ssemujju had no work identification card despite claiming that he is a senior salesperson as he only pulled out a receipt book. Kalyango, his work identification card expired in 2020.

Also, Judge Adams Byarugaba issued an arrest warrant for Henry Lyazi who is still on the run.
