House of Prayer Ministries proprietor Pastor Aloysius Bujingo has denied ever being introduced as the husband of longtime lover Susan Makula.
Last week we brought you a story about the pastor being summoned in court over charges of illegal marriage.
On December 7 Bujingo and Makula held what was assumed to be a customary marriage ceremony where Susan officially introduced Buingo to her parents at their home in Kawuku, Entebbe.
This angered many including some of his fellow pastors who accused him of embarking on a new marriage before he had fully dissolved the one with his legal wife Teddy Naluswa.
Many had since then called upon the police to question the pastor about his actions.
While appearing at a police station in Kampala, the controversial pastor denied the allegations saying he had only honored an invitation as a guest and that he was in no way introduced by Makula.
“My visit to Susan Makula’s home was just a casual visit and not traditional marriage ceremony,” Bujingo said.
This comes at a time Bujingo is facing a lawsuit filled by city lawyer Male Mabirizi who accuses the pastor and Makula of participating in a customary marriage despite both being aware of the subsisting marriage between the former and Teddy Naluswa.
Mabirizi recently said that Bujingo and Makula contradicted the customary marriage law with their ceremony.
The lawyer warned that the pair risked facing a five-year jail term each for contradicting section 50 of the Marriage Act CAP, 251.
Legally, Bujingo is married to Teddy Naluswa despite the former having on several occasions tried to divorce the latter to pave way for a new marriage with Makula.
