Police have arrested Pastor Andrew Muwanguzi, Church Pastor of true Worship Centre in Kamuli district, Eastern Uganda for hosting Presidential hopeful Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine in March 2019.
According to a source, Pastor Muwanguzi was picked up by plain cloth police officers immediately after featuring on a Tv talk show in Jinja on Saturday and taken to Jinja Central Police Station where he was held for an hour before he was transferred to Kamuli central police station.
Pastor Muwanguzi reportedly committed the offense when he hosted the People Power political boss Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu and other church leaders at his home in March 2019 without getting police approval.
Worship Centre Pastor said that his arrest was accidental since Bobi Wine just paid him a friendly courtesy visit, which didn’t warrant police clearance.
North Region police spokesperson, Michael Kasadha, says the suspect has been holding consultative meetings without notifying police contrary to the Public Order Management Act. He says detectives are still investigating the matter and will provide a detailed statement on the matter on Monday.
