The Speaker of Parliament, Anitah Among has revealed that MP, Paul Akamba (Busiki County) who was recently kidnapped from premises of High Court, after initially securing bail is currently held up at Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) headquarters, answering to fresh charges to another crime he is accused of.

The Speaker also revealed that she had agreed with Police to present her with summons of all MPs, instead of Police picking up her MPs anyhow.

“One thing I insisted to the Police is that, if you want to arrest my members, give the summons to me. Because originally, they would like to pick people anyhow, I said, give me the summons. And as you bring the summons, it shouldn’t be on hearsay, the list of 30 sijui those things. Tell me exactly why you want this person. I have the summons and as I speak now, Akamba is at the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) headquarters answering charges on allegations of another case,” Among said.

Paul Akamba and two other legislators; Lwengo district woman MP, Cissy Namujju and Bunyole East county MP Yusuf Mutembuliwere recently arrested and committed to the High Court over corruption-related allegations.

However, yesterday the lawyers of Paul Akamba said they had spoken to the legislator, who told them that he is safe but could not disclose his whereabouts. He has been in detention in an unknown place for five days now following his re-arrest last Friday.

Herbert Kidya, one of the lawyers representing Akamba and two others with whom he faces charges of corruption, revealed that they are working with the state prosecutors to ensure that he is produced in court on Friday. Failure to do so will force them to file a petition for a writ of habeas corpus.
