Bushara Cult Regroups
("New Vision," December 28, 2001)

LUWEERO district security agencies are on the alert following attempts by followers of self-styled prophet Wilson Bushara to reconstruct their demolished camp at Bukoto village in Kikamulo sub-county.

Frederick Kiwanuka reportsthat the followers, who for some time have been flocking back to the district, have constructed mud and wattle houses and dug at least two latrines.

Bushara and followers who predicted the end of the world by June 1, 2000, were in 1999 dispersed by the Police and their camp razed.

Bushara, who is charged withholding an illegal assembly and defiling two girls, is on remand in Luzira Prison.
