Kaddu, a resident of Mackay zone in Mengo, Kampala, was ordered to return to court on April 24.

The club wielding man who charged at and attempted to hit the Bishop of Namirembe Diocese Rt Rev Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira during Easter prayers at Saint Paul's Cathedral Namirembe, has been remanded.

Mwanga II Magistrate’s Court presided over by Julius Mwesigye on Thursday charged Herbert Solomon Kaddu,35, with three offences which include threating violence and disturbing religious assemblies.

The tour and travel driver denied the charges and was remanded to Luzira prison.

 
Kaddu, a resident of Mackay zone in Mengo, Kampala, was ordered to return to court on April 24.

He was subjected to a mental examination on Wednesday and it was established that he is mentally fine and fit to be prosecuted.

However, his family maintains that he is mentally unstable whereas Kaddu says he is demon possessed.

It is alleged that during Easter prayers on April 1, Kaddu charged towards Bishop Luwalira as he was preaching and crashed into a wooden barrier at the altar before reaching his perceived target. He was intercepted by church members and Police.
