NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has revealed that Hon Muhammad Ssegirinya is in pain but his resolve not yet crashed.
Kyagulanyi’s statement came shortly after his visit with other NUP leaders including Joel Ssenyonyi party spokesperson and Rubongoya the party secretary at kigo prison.
Kyagulanyi, on Monday afternoon led an NUP delegation that visited the Kawempe North MP and his Makindye West counterpart, Allan Ssewanyana who were remanded to Kigo Prison over murder charges.
While addressing journalists yesterday after the visit, Kyagulanyi said that Ssegirinya is in too much pain, but his resolve is not yet crashed.
“He is in pain. He has a wound on his foot, and actually even the second foot is also getting affected. The doctors here in prison have been attending to him, but he believes that he needs advanced treatment,” Kyagulanyi said.
He also said that Ssewanyana had told him that he was beaten and that he still has some pain.
Kyagulanyi said that it is clear that President Museveni wants to scrap the right to apply for bail so that he can keep all his political opponents behind bars.
The two legislators are expected to appear in court on October 27, 2022 as investigations into their case continue.
Last week, Ms. Justine Nakajumba mother to the detained Kawempe North MP Muhammad Ssegirinya broke down in tears begging president Museveni to pardon her son after he was further remanded to Kigo Prison.
Mr Erias Lukwago and Kampala Woman MP Shamim Malende who are the lawyers to the legislators argue that the allegations against the two MPs are politically motivated.
