Opposition MPs Ssegirinya, Ssewanyana Re-apply For Bail

The opposition members of parliament from Natitional Unity Platform (NUP) Muhammad Ssegirinya of Kawempe North and Hon Allan Ssewanyana of Makindye West reapplied for court bail after being re-arrested and remanded over fresh charges by Masaka High Court.

The two have listed new grounds which they want court to consider releasing them from Kigo Prison where they were both remanded.

The MPs claim that they are suffering from health complications which require serious medical attention they have not been able to receive while in detention.

In the same application, they told court that they have fixed places of abode, substantial sureties who will assure that they attend court wherever they are required; and they are willing to abide by all Bail terms which court may find necessary.

According to the Deputy Court Registrar Agnes Nkonge the duo had been asked to return today because High Court Judge Victoria Nkonge was indisposed.

The duo last week were driven back to Masaka High court where they were charged with another count of murder and later on remanded by Masaka Chief Magistrates Court to Kigo prison following their re-arrested by security operatives outside kigo prison after court had granted them bail last month.
