Pastor Bugingo petitions Court to decriminalize Polygamy

Salt Media proprietor and House of Prayer Ministries head pastor, Aloysious Bugingo has asked court to legalize polygamy.

Bugingo who had returned to Entebbe court on Monday for hearing of a case where he and his fiancee Suzan Makula are charged with bigamy, argues that the laws under which he’s being charged are draconian, irrational, discriminatory and as having no place in the contemporary constitutional order.

Through his lawyer Ronald Ruhinda, he contends that the marriage act violets the rights of a man to make a decision on who to marry and who to stay with in marriage, which he says hinders a man from marrying a person of his choice.

State prosecutors led by Timothy Amerit asked court for more time to file their response to Bugingo’s prayer.

The magistrate Stella Okwong Peculal adjourned the case to next month, 1st July 2022.
