Pastor William Muwanguzi has appeared In Kalisizo Grade One Magistrates court today to conclude his defence against impersonation and, attempted escape from prison.

 

Muwanguzi denied all the charges saying they were just crafted by his accusers.

 

However, he was not cross examined because his defence was not on oath.

 

Susan Awidi, the Kalisizo Grade One Magistrate, set the matter judgement on 12th December 2013 for both Muwanguzi, who is charged as Lwazi Paul Mwamba from Kenya and his co-accused Julius Mukasa.

 

On Tuesday, Muwanguzi was not allowed to proceed with his defence due to the fact that he was drunk.

 

While in the dock, Muwanguzi started uttering incoherent statements and the presiding magistrate was compelled to call for a breathalyser to test him.

 

A breathalyser is a gadget used on people suspected to be drunk. It measures the percentage of alcohol content in the blood or just detects the scent even when you just took a sip of beer.

 

 However, Muwanguzi was found drunk and the magistrate could not listen to his defence while in such a condition.

 

Together with his co-accused Julius Mukasa, Muwanguzi was sent back on remand until today when they reappeared and concluded their defence.

 

The accused will again appear on the stated date for the judgement of the case.

 

It is said that on 9th November 203, Muwanguzi and Mukasa posed as Catholic priests from Kenya and organized an unauthorized Charismatic Renewal prayer service at Nabisere Hotel in Kalisizo town council with intent to extort money from the innocent faithful.

 

They were arrested and taken to court and later remanded to Kalisizo Government Prison where Muwanguzi attempted to escape but prison warders arrested him and took him to police where he was charged with attempted escape and causing malicious damage on government property.
