The two opposition MPs who were arrested in September last year, are charged alongside Wilson Ssenyonga alias Tony Nyonga who pinned them for murdering Joseph Bwanika, who was a resident of Kisseka B village in Lwengo district.
Ssewanyana argues that much he is on remand; he merely remains a suspect who is innocent of the offenses until proven guilty of charges against him, indicating that this gives him absolute rights to participate in the process as well as expressing interest and contesting for Office of the Speaker.
Sssewanya complained that they have endured a long remand sentence of close to six months, which was enough time for the state to thoroughly study the case file, conduct and conclude the necessary investigations in the allegations against them.
Geoffrey Bwambezo, the LC I Chairperson of Kagaga village in Kasagama sub-county in Lyantonde district has filed a civil suit before Masaka High Court accusing Muhakanizi of unscrupulously taking over his land measuring 152 acres.
The MPs raised the concerns while appearing before the Masaka Grade One Magistrate Christine Nantege via video conference this afternoon, to receive updates on the progress of investigations into charges of murder and terrorism that were levied against them.
In a ruling delivered on Tuesday by Masaka High Registrar Agnes Nkonge, court declined the application filed by Wills Mbabazi Bamwesigye. Bamwesigye was seeking permission to further challenge Namayanja's election on academic grounds and irregular nomination by the Electoral Commission.
