What you need to know:

  • After arrest, the suspect’s relatives told the police that Mr Kaddu has a mental problem, but when he was examined by police medical team, he was found to be of sound mind.
  • It is alleged that the attacker mistimed his jump and crashed on the altar barrier, which dispelled him to the ground, allowing time for rescue of the stranded clerics.

KAMPALA. A stick-wielding man, who was arrested as he moved forward toward Bishop Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira at Namirembe Cathedral during Easter prayers, will be arraigned in court today.
The police yesterday said they have preferred charges of disrupting a religious gathering against Mr Herbert Kaddu, but the case file has been sent to the Resident State Attorney for legal advice.
