MPs Segirinya, Ssewanyana Denied Bail


Masaka High Court Judge Lawrence Tweyanziza has declined bail applications by Members of Parliament Allan Ssewanyana and Muhammad Ssegirinya, The Tower Post reports.

Ssewanyana and Segirinya who appeared before court via e-conferencing on Monday morning were sent back to Kigo and Luzira Prisons respectively.

According to Judge Tweyanziza, prosecution proved a likelihood that the duo would interfere with incomplete investigations and probably abscond from court once released on bail.

He further added that the two National Unity Platform legislators were a flight risk.

On requests to be released to get medical attention, Judge Tweyanziza directed prison authorities at Kigo to ensure that the MPs receive the needed treatment.
