20 more days in the coolers for Pastor Ssenyonga’s men

Man Jose Kayima

Christian Life Church lead Pastor, Jackson Ssenyonga’s henchman Israel Wasswa’s stay in the coolers has been extended for more 20 days.

With Judge Adams Byarugaba on leave, the bail ruling session had a new face in Judge Amon Magezi who opted for more time to study the case.

“As you know this case has been before my learned colleague, I can’t just give a ruling. I need to consult and go through the details,” Judge Magezi told the court.

The Bwaise-based church’s head of security Wasswa and Jamil Mwanda now have to wait until 12th September 2023 to know their fate.

At the same justice house, Mwanga II Court last time out, Judge Byarugaba denied Wasswa and Mwanda bail after their sureties identification documents had issues.

One had an expired work identity card and the other failed to present on top of their national identity cards plus LC1 letters missing signatures.

Also, 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 Senyonga led by Wasswa.

Just like Judge Byarugaba issued an arrest warrant for Henry Lyazi who was still on the run during the previous hearing, Judge Magezi maintained the status quo.
