decease sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; line-height: 200%;”>“My Lordship, case I can see the applicants in court however I don’t see my learned collegues who represent them, viagra order ” said Lubogo, pastor Kayanja’s lawyer on Thursday.

The applicants – pastors Solomon Male of Arising for Christ Ministries, Deborah Kyomuhendo, a businesswoman and David Mukalazi, a musician, Michael Kyazze and Robert Kayiira both of Omega Healing Centre in Kampala were all in court.

The High Court judge, Joseph Mulangira tasked one of them to explain why their lawyers were not in Court.

“My Lordship our lawyers have not yet arrived here……..they have other matters in other courts,” said Male who spoke on behalf of the others.

The matter was adjourned to 11, November for hearing.


The group says they are seeking court to overturn their conviction, saying that the magistrate erred in law and facts when he incorrectly interpreted the law, thereby finding them guilty.

The appellants stated in their appeal that the magistrate denied us the right to defend themselves “and also erred in law when he denied us the right to recall the prosecution witnesses”.

The appeal further states that the magistrate failed to evaluate evidence on record hence compromising the appellants’ case. It is stated that he allowed witnesses without police statements to testify in court.

Last year, Buganda Road Court Grade One Magistrate Julius Borore convicted the six and sentenced each to a fine of Shs1 million. They were also sentenced to community service of 100 hours or serve six months in prison upon failure to pay the fine and performing community service.

The pastors who opted to pay a fine and do community service as opposed to going to jail, partly cleaned Mulago hospital wards as part of their community service.
