According to reports circulating online, police officers in Uganda are currently stranded with 37 coffins they confiscated from traders who were protesting against the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) in Kampala, the country’s capital.
The coffins were dumped inside the church compound after the coffin dealers accused the church of blocking drainage channels in the area, hence diverting drainage water into their business premises.

Police Officers at Wandegeya Division Police Station are stranded with 37 coffins they confiscated from traders who were protesting against Pastor Samuel Kakande last month after they refused to reclaim them. The coffins were dumped in Pastor Kakande’s church compound at Kubiri junction in Wandegeya on Gayaza Road as the coffin dealers accused officials of Synagogue Church of all Nations of blocking drainage channels in the area and in the process diverting drainage water into their business premises. Over 18 people were arrested during the protests and later released on police bond. Now, Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, Emilian Kayima, says they are tired of keeping the coffins since they are occupying vital space.”
