Kawempe north MP Muhammad Ssegirinya has finally been granted bail as revealed by her lawyer Hon Shamim Malende who is the woman MP for Kampala.
She added that they are pushing for his complete freedom through the review of his case.
“Thank you GOD, Hon Ssegirinya Muhammad has been granted bail by Her Worship Doreen Karungi at Buganda Road Court on charges of inciting violence.As his lawyers, we are pushing for his complete freedom by pursuing a review/appeal in other files in Masaka Highcourt where bail was denied,” Hon Shamim Malende said.
Ssegirinya who was arrested and remanded to prison alongside Makindye West Mp Allan Ssewanyana had spent close to three months behind bars.
His application for bail alongside Ssewanyana has been rejected by Court a number of times.
Despite presenting his rotting foot and requesting for advanced medical attention weeks ago, Ssegirinya’s plea was denied.
He was at even one time rushed to Mulago hospital in a critical condition after he collapsed in prison.
Ssegirinya’s release comes at a time after his mother stormed Parliament yesterday crying and pleading for her son to be released.
She had earlier on pleaded to President Museveni to let her son be released because he’s her only breadwinner and she was suffering without him.
With Ssegirinya out, his colleague, Allan Ssewanyana’s fate awaits to be seen if he will also be granted bail.
The two MPs were arrested on allegations that they had masterminded the August-September Masaka machete killings.
