MPs Muhammad Ssegirinya and Allan Ssewanyana will spend more weeks in incarceration following Court’s decision to adjourn their case to December 21, 2021.
Prosecution led by Richard Birivumbuka, who is the Masaka resident chief state attorney informed court that investigations into the legislator’s second file of murder are not yet complete, and therefore asked for more time.
Court accepted prosecution’s prayer and adjourned the hearing to December 21, 2021.
Meanwhile Kawempe North MP Ssegirinya, who was appearing in court via Zoom, told court that he has been placed in solitary confinement at Luzira prison.
Ssegirinya told court that, he is not even allowed to attend Juma prayers or associate with other prisoners.
Court last month had ordered that Ssegirinya be allowed to be taken to a private hospital of his choice to receive treatment as his health was deteriorating.
The MP however told court that this was also not respected
Both the Kawempe North and Makindye West legislators were in September 2021 charged with murder, attempted murder and aiding and abetting terrorism in the greater Masaka region. END.
