Lawyer Hassan Male Mabirizi has received a video recording of the kwanjula marriage ceremony that he hopes to use in the case against House of Prayer Ministries International (HPMI) lead Pastor Aloysius Bujjingo and his Salt Media employee Suzan Makula Nantaba.
Mabirizi had sued Bujjingo and Makula in the Entebbe Magistrate’s Court over bigamy after the duo entered into another marriage yet the ‘man of God’ is still legally married to Teddy Naluswa.
The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has since taken over Mabirizi’s case and ordered him to submit all relevant pieces of evidence and documents. (Read story here).
While it was thought that Bujjingo and Makula could now breathe since the DPP could discontinue the case as she recently did with Robert Kyagulanyi’s (Bobi Wine’s), Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has offered Mabirizi footage from the marriage ceremony.
The lawyer had written to the commission requesting videos from the December 07 event which Bujjingo and some guests who attended have since claimed was a get together event.
On January 14, acting UCC executive director Susan Wegoye wrote to Mabirizi responding to his request and giving him the footage he asked for.
“Reference is made to your letter dated December 27, 2021 requesting for a recording of content broadcast on Salt TV on December 07, 2021. Please find a copy of the recording as requested,” wrote Wegoye.
Mabirizi hopes to use the recording as evidence to pin Bujjingo and Suzan Makula for flouting provisions of the Marriage Act.
But first, the lawyer must compel the DPP to revert the case to him.
