Leader of opposition raises alarm over MP Ssewanyana’s health
By AFAYO SHADRACH BETHEL
The Leader of Opposition Mathias Mpuuga has challenged the prisons authorities to explain why jailed Makindye West legislator Allan Ssewanyana is not getting the treatment court ordered, after failing to see him on their latest visit.
Mpuuga, wondered why the Commissioner General of Prisons, Dr Johnson Byabashaija had not allowed Ssewanyana to receive better medical attention despite a court order.
This follows a discovery that the ailing MP who has been in prison for 17 months without trial, can no longer walk or sit on his own.
Kawempe North MP Muhammad Ssegirinya, who was arrested together with Ssewanyana in September 2021, told Mpuuga and his team that Ssewanyana has been unable to eat on his own or walk for about three weeks.
