Hon. Ssegirinya And Ssewanyana Make A Year In Jail, Bobi Wine Gives Progress Of Their Case

Today marks a year since Hon. Ssegirinya and Hon. Ssewanya were arrested for apparently participating in the Masaka killings that happened in 2021.

The two have since had several court sessions but never managed to get out, for now, a year. Initially, the 2 legislators were granted cash bail of UGX 20M each. They paid it but have never regained their freedom.

Bobi Wine said the only judge that had attempted to be of help was mysteriously transferred.

“Last week, Justice Jane Alividza who attempted to fast-track their trial was unceremoniously transferred. Our comrades now have to once again wait until another Judge is assigned their file. Thankfully, our legal team is doing all it can to stop this nightmare. It shall be well.”

There have been a number of attempts to get these legislators out of jail. At one point Ssegirinya wanted bail to go out for treatment but it was denied because apparently, the doctors in Uganda could handle his situation.

On several occasions, Ssegirinya’ mother has walked to Parliament to meet the speaker and recently she met with Hon. Nobert Mao who promised to do something about it.

However, people on social media have accused Bobi Wine of doing so little in regard to this case.

“It is always well on your side, always on trips vacations tweeting such doing nothing after them doing everything for you in the name of tuli mu struggle,” one twitter user commented.
