Lawyer Male Mabirizi Sweating Plasma Behind Bars At Kitalya Prison

Lawyer Male Mabirizi is now a citizen at Kitalya Prison and sweating plasma. This is after he was handed over to the Prison authorities by Police.

Mabirizi was arrested yesterday by Crime Intelligence at the gate of Kyambogo University.

This is after he has been dodging arrest which was declared by Justice Musa Ssekana.

Ssekana ordered for the arrest of Mabirizi because of contempt of court and disrespectful behavior.

Mabirizi was sentenced to 18 months in jail after failure to pay Shs 300m.

An application was then filed against Mabirizi’s unbecoming behavior towards the judicial officers.

Ssekana asked Mabirizi to present defense for himself against these charges or risk 18 months behind bars.

“Mabirizi never presented himself to court after being summoned and neither did he file affidavits to deny the allegations against him. Court has been left with no option but to order for his arrest on sight and be taken to prison for 18 months,”Ssekaana ruled.

Mabirizi however said that these orders by Justice Musa Ssekana are illegal.

This is because he’s also part of the case and therefore there is a conflict of interest.

Mabirizi challenged the orders in the Court of Appeal which is yet to give a ruling on the issue.

Meanwhile Frank Baine the spokesperson of the Uganda Prisons Service confirmed that Mabirizi was received at the Prison yesterday around 7:30pm.
