Hundreds of followers of Pastor Aloysius Bujingo of the House of Prayer Ministries International on Monday swarmed Nabweru Court where he appeared to defend himself on allegations of burning Bibles recently.
The anxiously followers were also heard praying for their pastor aloud and in what they described as tongues.
Given the deafening chants from the followers, the Chief Magistrate, Ms Esther Nasambu was forced to halt proceedings for five minutes to allow Pastor Bujingo calm them down.
She had vowed not to stop the proceedings if the noise went on unabated.
The application sought temporary injunction against Mr Bujingo from burning Bibles more Bibles pending the disposal of the main case.
In April this year, the preacher stunned the public when he allegedly burned Bibles of King James Version (KJV) and Good News version which he collected from flock on Easter Sunday.
The core reason for burning the aforementioned version of the Bibles was that they bore the words ‘Holy Ghost’ as opposed to ‘Holy Spirit.’
It’s further alleged that before Pastor Bujingo could set ablaze the aforementioned Bibles, he reportedly told his flock that King James Version and the New Testament, were tampered with and that some verses were omitted without explanation.
He cited the lines talking about the fasting and Lent which he said were deleted through unclear circumstances and that the word “Holy Ghost” appears 99 times yet the word “Holy Spirit” appears only seven times.
The pastor allegedly said the defects in the Bible were the handiwork of “devil worshipers” and should, therefore, not be allowed to confuse Christians.
