Counsel Erias Lukwago, Hon Allan Ssewanyana’s lawyer has asked the parliament of Uganda to intervene in their client’s matter. This follows the abduction of Hon ssewanyana from the gates of kigo prison immediately after his release by court.
“Speaker of parliament Hon Oulanya and your Deputy kindly save Honorable ssewanyana , write to security agencies asking them to bring him back to courts” Counsel Erias Lukwago said.
While addressing media at Hon Ssewanyana’s hone in Makidye West, Lukwago stressed that it’s absurd that kidnappers can take away a member of parliament in such cruel manner in broad daylight even after securing court bail.
“Government failed to bring pinning evidence on my clients thus remain allegations and after securing their bail, they abducted them…” Counsel Erias Lukwago added
He also vowed to go back to court and ask an order forcing security agencies like UPDF to bring back Hon Ssewanyana to be charged if at all he has cases to answer to.
