Kawempe North MP-elect, Mr Muhammad fondly known as Mr.Updates Ssegirinya has been sent back to jail after the hearing of his bail application at Buganda Road Court on Thursday flopped.
The presiding grade one magistrate, Ms Gladys Kamasanyu was compelled to adjourn hearing of the MP’s bail application to April 15 after his two lawyers made contradictory submissions in court.
Muhammed Ssegirinya was sent to the coolers last month after he was found protesting alongside Kampala road.
Mr Kiryowa told court that they had prepared for only bail application and not hearing of the case. However, Ms Malende, who is also Kampala Woman MP-elect, in her submission told court that they were ready to hear the evidence of prosecution witnesses but would prepare for cross examination in the next court sitting.
“The defense didn’t take any reasonable practical step by getting any disclosure. The lawyers have not shown readiness to proceed, one says they are ready, the other pulls it down,”
Both lawyers insisted that however much court had prepared this day for hearing of the case with bail application, they were only ready for bail since the prosecution had not served them as required by the law
