Permission was granted to the legislator who was appearing via a video conferencing link from Kigo prison to show court his foot which has multiple wounds. The Magistrate directed the prisons authorities to give him medical treatment and they informed court that they are already managing him.
Kidandala had also alleged that Ssegirinya’s nomination was not accompanied by the names and signatures of a minimum of ten persons who are registered voters in the Kawempe North constituency, as required by the law.
The summons was issued on Friday by the Grade One Magistrate Marion Mangeni following a request of State Attorney Ivan Kyazze. Kyazze told the court that Ssegirinya was supposed to appear today but neither he nor his lawyers showed up for further hearing of his case.
