Kawempe North MP Ssegirinya Muhammad Friday appeared before the Buganda Road Court where he is being charged with fresh offences of inciting violence.

He showed to court how his feet are damaged following the torture he received while in custody.

His mother broke down in court, begging the State to pardon her son whom she said was in pain and too sick to be in prison.

Justine Nakajumba broke down, wailing and asking the state and pardon her son who has been in prison for weeks.

He now faces separate charges of murder, attempted murder, aiding and abetting terrorism in connection a recent spate of killings in Masaka sub region which claimed close to 30 lives.

“Please pardon my son. President Museveni please forgive my son, Ssegirinya. I beg you. He’s in so much pain and sick to continue being detained. I no longer eat food ever since he was arrested and remanded,” Nakajumba is quoted as saying in court.

Although Ssegirinya denied the offence of inciting violence via zoom, Grade one magistrate, Doreen Karungi, further remanded him to Kigo government prison until October 29, 2021.

This was after the state prosecutor, Judith Nyinamwiza, informed court that investigations into the case are still ongoing.

He is accused of posting on his Facebook fans page a massage allegedly calculated to incite the public against a section or group of Ugandan population while relating it to the 1994 Rwanda genocide.

In the Masaka case, Ssegirinya and his Makindye West counterpart, Allan Ssewanyana are expected to appear in court on October 27 as investigations into their case continues.
