A reporter at Voice of Tooro has been clobbered by the Christians of Jerusalem Miracle Centre Pentecostal Church in East division, Fort Portal municipality.
Superior Mugaga was on Sunday attacked by the irate mob of Christians attached to Jerusalem Miracle Pentecostal church headed by pastor Dan Mubiiru.
According to the victim, the Christians confiscated his mobile phone before beating him seriously leaving his jacket and shirt torn apart. Superior was later admitted at Fort Portal hospital private wing after recording an assault case at the police.
Superior had gone to cover a land conflict story between JerusalemMiracle Centre, and Bethesda church belonging to Nabukeera Adyeeri.
Mid May this year Pr. Dan Mubiiru was nabbed and caged at Police for allegedly leadinga rival faction to raid on another church.
Pr Mubiru and his Christians allegedly stormed Bukwali Bethsaida Miracle Centre, demanding that Nabukeera Adyeeri and his followersvacate the premises on grounds that they were not the rightful owners of the land and the church itself.
The Kabarole district anti-riot police commander Yesamu, said police closed off the church and asked the leaders to first resolve their wrangles before it is reopened.
The torture of Superior comes hardly a week after the Fort Portal journalists demanded an explanation from Fort Portal Town clerk Deo Ndimo for allegedly mistreating, embarrassing and harassing them when they were chased away from a meeting at New Fort View on21st November labeling them strangers.
Acts of torturing the journalists are reportedly on the rise in Uganda especially by the NGOs, Pentecostal church pastors and government officials who are against the coverage of the alleged corruption scams, land grabbing and human rights violations.
