Court Lifts Arrest Warrant of Pastor Justine, Wife to Pastor Tom Mugerwa

UGANDA, Kampala | Real Muloodi News | The Land Division of the High Court has lifted an arrest warrant against Pastor Justine Mugerwa regarding a long-standing land dispute involving her late daughter, Rebecca Nakimuli Mugerwa.

Pastor Justine Mugerwa, who is the wife of Pastor Tom Mugerwa of Mutundwe, appeared in court on Friday, February 10, accompanied by her lawyer Edward Sekabanja, where she made an affidavit stating that she is no longer interested in pursuing her late daughter’s case due to a lack of financial resources to pay for legal fees, no viable defense, and poor health conditions attributed to her advanced age.

Despite this, Pastor Justine Mugerwa has requested Justice Tadeo Asiimwe for time to consult with her family to identify a replacement for her late daughter in the case. The land dispute, which has been ongoing for about ten years, involves allegations of land theft by Rebecca Nakimuli Mugerwa, City lawyer Felix Kintu Ntenza of Kintu Ntenza and Company Advocates, and several others, including Kyeyune Emmy, Ssava Steven, Latter Day Investments Ltd, Seebunza Douglas, and Sam Ndiwalana.

The land in question is located at Busingiri Nyanama Bunnamwaya in Wakiso district and is registered under Kampala businessman Hajji Abdul Ddumba’s name. The allegations against the accused parties, including Rebecca Nakimuli Mugerwa, are that they colluded to steal the land, which has resulted in a protracted court case involving multiple judicial officers.

According to Hajji Abdul Ddumba, the case has been ongoing for approximately ten years, during which time the accused parties have defended themselves against the allegations. The case is complex and contentious, with multiple parties involved and allegations of fraud and corruption. The decision by Pastor Justine Mugerwa to withdraw from the case due to her health and financial circumstances is understandable, given the complexity of the legal proceedings.

The lifting of the arrest warrant against Pastor Justine Mugerwa marks a significant development in the case, allowing her to focus on her health and well-being without fear of legal repercussions. The case remains ongoing, and it remains to be seen how the legal proceedings will unfold and whether justice will be served for all parties involved.

Kampala City lawyer Felix Kintu Ntenza of Kintu Ntenza who is one of the accused in the case of Pastor Justine Mugerwa is already in another illegal land case that led to his arrest last year in 2022. He is set to face trial on March 29th, 2023 at the Buganda Road Court over allegations of fraudulently obtaining UGX 195 million in a land transaction.
