On Thursday some media houses reported that Presiding Apostle Dr. Joseph Serwadda and Bishop David Kiganda of Christianity Focus Ministries were to be key witnesses in a case where House of Prayer Ministries founding Pastor, Aloysius Bugingo is accused of burning the Holy Bible.

The source that announced them said other witnesses expected in court over the same case include Pr. David Martin Sebuguzi, Ronald Mukiibi, Pr. Stephen Kaberuka and Bishop Joshua Murefu.

However Apostle Serwadda has come out to refute the claims saying that the plaintiffs; Kizza Aloysius Matovu, a former Dembe FM presenter now working with Kingdom TV and Christian book author Evangelist Francisco Semugooma expected him to do so, “they are mistaken and should quickly find someone else.”

According to Serwadda, he does not have time for court and definitely not where Bugingo is involved.

“I shall never stand in court to testify against anyone. I listened to Bugingo 4 years ago and concluded he has something wrong with his life and so i forgave him right there.” Pastor Serwadda said.” I took a calculated decision to never respond to his daily rants however hurtful and sickening they may be. I actually do not listen to him at all. When he burnt/threatened to burn bibles I was on a mission in Mexico.”

“If Mr Matovu and Mr Semugooma expected me to do so, they are mistaken and should quickly find someone else. I have no time for court. And definitely not where Bugingo is involved!” He added.

Apparently, Nabweru court chief magistrate, Esther Nasambu who will preside over the case reportedly told the accused (Aloysius Bugingo) to file his defense in 15 days, on allegations of violating Christian’s freedom of worship by burning several versions of the Holy Bible.
