Kawempe North MP Muhammad Ssegirinya’s mother Christine Sanyu Nakajumba has stormed Parliament this morning to petition Speaker Jacob Oulanyah about her son’s condition.
Teary Nakajumba says the son is badly off, and she hasn’t been given a chance to see him.
Nakajumba wants his son to be forgiven by the state. She also says that once Ssegirinya is set free, as a mother, she is going to counsel him to desist from participating in anything that may result into crime.
Last week, MPs Ssegirinya and Allan Ssewanyana and their co-accused in a murder case were committed to the high court for trial.
The Director of Public Prosecutions told Masaka Chief Magistrates Court that enough evidence has been gathered to pin the suspects on four counts of murder, two of attempted murder, terrorism, and abetting terrorism – crimes said to have been committed in greater Masaka between January and August 2021.
During the session, Ssegirinya told court that he needs better medical attention as he is seriously ill. His mother broke down in tears as Ssegirinya sounded to be in a lot of pain.
