Legislators Allan Ssewanyana (Makindye West) and Muhammad Nsereko (Kampala Central) have today appeared before CID headquarters in Kibuli for interrogation over remarks made in reference to the age limit bill.

Four MPs were yesterday summoned to appear for interrogation over offensive communication and incitement of violence.

On Tuesday, only Ssewanyana and Nsereko showed up together with MP Odonga Otto who is their lawyer.

Speaking shortly before being ushered into the interrogation room, Nsereko said they would not be intimidated by the summons.

“We were told of a file here at CID headquarters but we shall not be intimidated,” Nsereko said “We are saying no to amendment of constitution.”

The Kampala Central legislator said despite the ‘intimidation’, they would continue with their struggle.

“Its our freedom of expression and if anyone thinks offended by our words should go to court. We stand our ground,”  Hon nsereko said

On MPs Theodore Ssekikubo and Barnabas Tinkasimire who are yet to show up, Otto said it was tactical for them to remain in parliament in case the bill is tabled on the floor of parliament.

“They have remained in parliament tactically so that in case the bill is tabled, they can put up some resistance, “Otto said.

Yesterday, Monday morning, youths dressed in white under the Jobless Brotherhood staged demonstrations in the city against amendment of article 102 (b) of the constitution. After their arrest,  Makindye West MP Allan Ssewanyana tried to block police from taking them in.

The vocal MP was bundled and dragged to Central Police station for obstructing the work of police said Kayima.
