By Hon Francis Zaake, Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament;
Hard luck to Hon. Ssegirinya and Hon. Ssewanyana whose bail application ruling has been deferred to Monday next week. Hon. Ssegirinya has once again shown Court the festering wounds beneath his feet that he attributes to torture he underwent after being abducted.
Hon. Ssewanyana, too, says he was tortured particularly around his groin area and almost displayed to Court his wounds had it not been for the Judge’s intervention. Whereas the Judge has ordered for the two MPs to be given specialised treatment while in Prison, I think that is unlikely to happen because their conditions would certainly not have worsened, as they now have, if they could indeed be managed from Prison.
It may take long, but I pray that justice is eventually served for these two comrades, and by extension, all other political prisoners
