Kawempe North MP Muhammad Segirinya and Makindye West legislator Allan Ssewanyana have been sent again in jail until 2023 after court adjourned their bail application to February 20, 2023.
In the last sitting, Alice Komuhangi Khaukha ordered the Uganda Prisons Services (UPS) to present them so as to enable them to sign some legal documents for their bail application.
However, today, in the absence of the presiding judge who is reported to be unwell, the duo virtually appeared before the court registrar Stella Beatrice Atingu.
The registrar reported that they had not been brought before the court physically because the prison officials are trying to protect all inmates from getting Ebola.
The legislators are jointly charged with a string of charges including murder, attempted murder, aiding, and abetting terrorism stemming from their alleged involvement in the killings which occurred between March and June 2021, in the greater Masaka region. Over 30 lives were lost.
September 7, 2022, made a year since the two MPs were remanded to prison. Their trial has never kicked off and their numerous attempts to get out on bail have hit a dead end.
