The Masaka Resident Judge, Lawrence Tweyanze has granted Members of Parliament, Muhammad Ssegirinya (Kawempe North) and Allan Ssewanyana (Makindye West) court bail.
Justice Tweyanze delivered the ruling at 2:00PM today where the two got cash bail of Shs20Million each while their sureties have bonded at Shs50M each non cash.
The court bail has been given following the Director of Public Prosecution’s withdrawal of three affidavits in which she earlier opposed the bail application.
The State Attorney, Richard Birivumbuka said the affidavits withdrawn were sworn by Thomas Jatiko, Jennifer Amumpaire and Detective SP Innocent Mubangizi, tendered in on January 23, 2023.
Birivumbuka told court that the DPP directed prosecution not to object to their bail application. The DPP said prosecution should simply make their submissions on bail terms.
The MPs are accused of killing one Joseph Bwanika, a resident of Kankamba village, Kisekka B village, Lwengo district.
