NEW TWIST: Pastor Bujjingo-Suzan Makula Chief Tormentor ‘Betrayed’ by City Lawyer

Pastor Bujjingo and Suzan Makula Nantaba

There is a new twist in a consolidated case in which perennial litigant Hassan Male Mabirizi and Robert Muhairwe Rutaro want House of Prayer Ministries International (HPMI) lead pastor Aloysius Bugingo and his ‘second wife’ Suzan Makula Nantaba tried and sentenced for committing bigamy contrary to sections of the Marriage Act.

This after Rutaro, through his lawyers of Elgon Associated Advocates, wrote to the Entebbe Chief Magistrate’s Court condemning Mabirizi for attacking Director of Public Prosections (DPP) Jane Frances Abodo and her offfice.

The DPP recently announced it would take over the case from Mabirizi and Rutaro. (See story here).

But Mabirizi criticized the DPP for her decision to take over the case against Bujjingo and Makula. (Read report here).

Mabirizi has since filed an application challenging the DPP’s decision to take over his case.

Now, Rutaro has said he supports the DPP’s takeover of the Bujjingo bigamy case because Abodo’s office is more competent than private prosecutors.

Describing Mabirizi’s criticism of the DPP as “senseless and useless,” Rutaro expressed his support for Abodo.

“Our client believes and trusts the office of the DPP to effectively handle this matter given their unbeatable capacity and power to investigate all matters pertaining to this case to the deepest core, which capacity the complainants (private prosecutors) do not have,” wrote Rutaro’s lawyers of Elgon Associated Advocates.

“Our client, once again wishes to pledge his total support and cooperation to the office of the DPP in handling this matter to its logical conclusion and prays that the court disregards Mr Mabirizi’s legally useless and senseless attacks and applications. Let the DPP continue with the case.”

He also condemned Mabirizi for reportedly behaving unprofessionally.

“Our client is disappointed with the unprofessional and senseless conductor of his co-complainant Mr Male Mabirizi in attacking the DPP for executing her constitutional powers in taking over this matter, and filing senseless and legally useless criminal application No. 03 of 2022 to frustrate the DPP from exercising her constitutional duty,” the January 17 letter further read in part.

“Our client condemns in the strongest terms the unprofessional conduct of Mr Male Mabirizi in senselessly attacking the office of the DPP without any legal justification and therefore wish to disassociate himself with Male Mabirizi in as far as these attacks and legally useless Criminal Application No.03 of 2022 are concerned.”

Recently, DPP Abodo, an appointee of President Museveni, withdrew challenges from NUP leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine after taking over the case from Mabirizi, prompting the lawyer to suggest that Bobi Wine works for Museveni. (See story here).
