Buganda Road Grade one Magistrate Charles Yeteise has dismissed the hearing of a criminal case against the newly consecrated Evangelical Orthodox Bishop Jacinto Kibuuka in which he was accused of committing acts which wound or injure the feelings of Catholics.
This was after the magistrate accepted a letter from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Mike Chibita in which he indicated that he is no longer interested in prosecuting Bishop Kibuuka.
Last month, Kalungu East Member of Parliament Joseph Ssewungu and a group of lawyers from the Uganda Catholic lawyers Society filed a suit against Kibuuka alleging that he uttered demeaning words against Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lawanga and Gulu Diocese Archbishop John Baptist Odama, who he referred to as ““abayaaye” (crooks).
However the complainant’s lawyer Jude Mbabali has vowed to appeal the ruling.
