NEWS– A yet to be identified group of armed men have reportedly attacked Kampala District Woman MP Hon Shamim Malende as she rushed to Masaka for the second bail hearing of fellow NUP legislators.
Hon Malende is one of the lawyers representing MPs Muhammad Ssegirinya (Kawempe North) and Allan Ssewayanya (Makindye West).
The MPs are facing murder, attempted murder and terrorism charges in connection to the recent machete hackings in the Greater Masaka area where nearly 30 people were killed.
Hon Malende revealed this morning that while driving to Masaka, she was accosted by a group of people who deflated her car tyres and left her stranded on the road.
“I have been attacked by unknown people on my way to Masaka court for the bail application of Hon Ssegirinya and Hon Allan Ssewanyana and my car tyres deflated,” she said without giving further details.
The MP did not immediately respond to our calls for further details on the attack.
She however shared the revelation on social media along with pictures of her deflated Toyota Harrier. The same vehicle was involved in a collision late last month, while being chased by security personnel as she tried to make off with MP Ssegirinya, who had just been released from Kigo Prison.
