Former MP Wakayima arrested, detained at Naggalama

Must read

Former Nansana Municipality MP Nsereko Wakayima Musoke, who recently lost a court petition, has been arrested and detained at Naggalama Police Station for allegedly holding a ‘press conference’ this morning, without police permission, the area District Police Commander (DPC) Bernard Kawalo said.

Wakayima, a Democratic Party (DP) member, had called the press to pronounce himself on the Court of Appeal ruling which upheld an earlier High Court decision nullifying his election on the grounds that he did not have minimum qualifications to stand for a parliamentary seat.

Following the High Court ruling, three appellate court judges led by former deputy Chief Justice Steven Kavuma, Chebrion Barishaki and Hellen Obura also dismissed Wakayima’s appeal and instead declared Robert Kasule Sebunya of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) as the duly elected MP for the area, even when the latter emerged third in the 2016 parliamentary elections.
