In short
Kaddus charges stem from an incident inside St Paul Cathedral, Namirembe on Easter Sunday, when he charged towards Bishop Luwalira who was leading the morning Service.

 

A stick-wielding man who was arrested after attempting to attack Bishop Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira at the altar during Easter prayers has been granted bail.

Herbert Solomon Kaddu was charged with two counts of threatening violence contrary to Section 81 of the Penal Code Act and one count of disturbing a religious assembly contrary to Section 119 of the Penal Code. 

On Monday, Kaddu appeared before Grade One Magistrate Julius Mwesigye of Lubaga Chief Magistrate's court granted him cash bail of 300,000 shillings, on grounds of poor health.

He also presented four people whom he said that they were substantial sureties. Each presented a national identification card and a local council one letter.

The sureties are Annet Nalulyo and Muhammad Kafeero, teachers of Makerere West Valley Primary School,  Emmanuel Sekaayi and Ronald Sebuliba, residents of Mukono District.

However state prosecutor Immaculate Nambajju had earlier objected to the bail application on grounds that the sureties, Sebuliba and Sekaayi are not with in the jurisdiction of Lubaga Chief Magistrate's Court.

The case was adjourned to May 28th 2018.
