KAMPALA, SHIFTMEDIA- Kawempe North Legislator Mohammad Ssegirinya was rearrested over fresh terrorism charges, police has disclosed.
Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga confirmed the re-arrest of MP Mohammad Ssegirinya.
Ssegirinya was roughly arrested by a joint team of security personnel after he was released from Kigo Prisons on Monday. He was whisked from Kampala Woman MPs car, Hon Shamim Malende amidst controversy regarding the independence of the judiciary.
Earlier last week Makindye legislator Allan Ssewanyana was also rearrested immediately after he was set free on bail over murder allegation charges.
Enanga, in a statement he released later on Monday, said that Ssegirinya will now join his counterpart MP Ssewanyana to record a statement on new charges.
“We want to inform the public that Hon Ssegirinya Mohammad has also been rearrested on fresh charges of treason and incitement to violence by the joint security task team of investigators,” Enanga said.
“He has been transferred to the Special Investigations Division, in Kireka for further statement recording and action,” he added.
The National Unity Platform (NUP) and Kawempe North MP had spent over two weeks in Kigo Prison on charges of terrorism and murder.
Ssegirinya, alongside MP Ssewanyana and others still at large are being pinned for their alleged involvement in killing at least 3 people in the greater Masaka region.
