Police have surrounded the home of Kawempe North Member of Parliament Muhammed Ssegirinya, a day after slapping him with a controversial criminal summon over Masaka murders.

“You summoned me for a police statement ….Now what is the aim of deployment at home?” he said in a Twitter post on Saturday morning.

Police in Masaka on Friday summoned Ssegirinya and Makindye West MP Allan Ssewanyana for questioning over thier alleged involvement in the ongoing killings in Greater Masaka.

Charles Twine, a spokesperson of the Criminal Investigations Directorate said the duo are required to appear at Masaka Police Station on Monday, September 6, to assist in the ongoing investigations of series of egregious crimes of murders in the region.

Ssegirinya on Friday described the police summons as unbelievable and a plot to divert the population from focusing on the real killers.

Both Members of Parliament are members of the National Unity Platform (NUP), a leading opposition group in the country.

NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi also know as Bobi Wine described the Police’s involvement of the NUP members as ridiculous and said the plan will fail.

“Anyone can predict where this is going, and what their grand objective is. What I can say without contradiction, is that this new attempt will fail, like all those before. Our people just need to be vigilant and remain alert,” Kyagulanyi said.

The Masaka region is currently experiencing a space of murders, with over 30 people killed by machete welding gangs, whose intentions are not yet clear.
