“MP Mohammad Ssegirinya rearrested moments after being released from prison after being granted bail by court. Accused of murder, attempted murder and terrorism in relation to mysterious murders in Masaka. President Museveni on Sat said it is not right to release murder suspects” (Radio 4/103.3 FM, 27.09.2021).
Again and again, the authorities and security organization takes their freedom to obvious levels of impunity and injustice in the republic. This tends to happen to a chosen few and Members of Parliament who happens to big-deal opposition members. Therefore, Kawempe North MP Ssegirinya are now not only charged for murders in Masaka. He will be arraigned elsewhere as well.
That is why he was arrested by yet another security organization. If it is Chieftain of Military Intelligence (CMI) or Internal Security Organization (ISO). Heck, one of the army units could have done this today. Because, this are just preparing the MP to be arraigned before the Court Martial. As an excuse to keep him detained without any need to produce evidence or affidavits to prove his guilt or that he even committed crime in question.
The civilian courts cannot keep the “alleged” criminal forever without production of evidence or proof. The investigation has prove their crimes and not just keep them detained. This just proves how wrongly this is done.
The Police Force and the authorities are catching “criminals” but have no proof or evidence. Heck, their investigations are non-existent. Because, everyone knows these are just political ploys to hit one of their enemies. This is not the mastermind of the murders or behind the murders of Masaka. He was busy getting medical equipment in the Netherlands and upgrade the ambulances there. Therefore, the authorities and law enforcement is blind obedient bureaucrats with no functioning brains. Because, everyone knows what is going on and if their knobs are put together. They might able to pull a trick or two, but this isn’t it.
We have seen this game being played out before. The injustice and injustice is systematic. This was prepared and planned. As the state couldn’t keep him illegally detained in prison. They needed an excuse and the bail made it possible to re-arrest him. Therefore, this vicious means are how the state works.
This is putting the cart before the horse. They are making someone criminal before they have done the crime. By doing that… they are doing something illegal. Simply arresting and taking away someone’s freedom and liberty. Just because they have the authority and ability to do so. Still, that isn’t rule of law or justice. No, this is injustice and nothing else.
The Police and authorities aren’t catching the killers or assassins of Masaka. Instead they are keeping two MPs implicated for existing. This tragedy doesn’t seem to end. The tale for these two will last for months and there will plenty of trials. If not also lots of charges that the state cannot prove. Because it is taken out of thin-air and is as valuable as any of the President’s recent promises during the campaign. Peace.
