House of Prayer Ministries senior pastor, Aloysius Bugingo and estranged wife, Teddy Naluswa have failed to reconcile following court mediation process.
When Bugingo and Teddy separated, the former went to court and filed for divorce which the latter challenged.
High court Family Division presided over by Justice Joseph Murangira directed Bugingo to first consider the option of mediation before the case should be heard.
According to a report filed by the New Vision newspaper, a source privy to the mediation said the process has hit a dead end.
Bishop Joshua Lwere, the general overseer of the National Fellowship of the Born-again of the Pentecostal Churches of Uganda was named as the mediator.
Pastor Bugingo and his lawyer rejected the proposed mediator accusing him of bias, therefore, leading to the failure of the first mediation process.
Executive Director of the Uganda National Roads Authority, Allen Kagina was named the second mediator but she has also failed to reconciling the couple.
Court mediation is a private process where a neutral third-party person helps the involved parties in discussing and trying to resolve the dispute. Whereas there can be mediation, the process can remain voluntary in that the parties are not required to come to an agreement.
High court Family Division has set January 25th, next year to hear the case.
Source of scuffle:
Pastor Bugingo bitterly separated with Teddy Naluswa, a wife he was married to for 21 years.
He replaced her with a younger bae, Susan Makula, who he plans to wed. The flamboyant pastor did not stop at that, he filed for divorce in 2019 to officially end the marriage ties with Teddy.
Teddy Naluswa opposed the dissolution of their marriage, saying what God has already put together no person can separate.
Naluswa went independent and opened her own church, Word of Salvation Ministries International.
