 Daniel Walyemera, a lawyer representing Pastor Joseph Kabuleta has been denied access to his client.

Kabuleta’s currently being held at the Special Investigations Division in Kireka. He was arrested by plain cloth police detectives at Drew and Jacs Restaurant in Lugogo ahead of his Friday evening fellowship and faces charges of offensive communication.

“It is unfortunate however that authorities at SID denied Joseph Kabuleta access to his legal team in disregard of constitutional rights to access to legal representation,” the Watchman Ministry said in a statement issued on Sunday.

However Kabuleta's doctor and family were the only ones granted access to him.

Charles Twine, the Spokesperson of the Criminal Investigations Directorate, however, says it is not right for Kabuleta or anyone to be denied access to their lawyer. 

“It is not proper for any suspect to be denied access to his lawyers, if this is the case, I will talk to the management of police to ensure he gets his lawyers. “Twine says.

Meanwhile, worshipers at the Watchman Ministries also claim that Godwin Matsiko and Collins Tugumusirize are also missing.

According to sources, Matsiko was allegedly arrested just after the arrest of Kabuleta, while Tugumusirize was arrested on Saturday.
