Francis Mwijukye, the Buhweju County MP, says that even with the pain the MPs are in, Kigo Prison has only a health centre III yet the MPs want specialised treatment, which they can’t access at the facility. He says Ssegirinyas condition is particularly alarming.
Ssekikubo says that Government cannot sit and debate among themselves, saying the opposition exists as by the laws that govern Parliament and multiparty democracy. He says Parliament should not go on like everything is normal and debate with a one sided house.
Raising a matter of procedure on Wednesday in Parliament, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, the Kiira Municipality MP said the arrest of the MPs touches on the privileges and protection as MPs. He questioned if Parliament is taking any step to help the MPs.
