MP Ssegirinya says Police at CPS Kampala are using his ‘exhibits’ in their office

In 2015, the Uganda Communications Comission (UCC) effectively switched off all analogue television sets in what was known as the digital migration.

The exercise was not a smooth one though for the Commission as they faced various obstacles and challenges.

The process was even successfully challenged in court by city Lawyer Enoth Mugabi on Mengo Chief Magistrate Court.

It resulted in Magistrate Moses Ntende Kagoda issuing an interim order directing the Uganda Communications Commission to switch back to the old analogue signal transmission.

This was not the only obstacle UCC faced, they also faced protests from then renown political activist and now Kawempe North MP Muhammad Ssegirinya.

The motormouth MP led a demonstration in the city in which he together with a colleague carried big old fashioned TV sets commonly referred to as Kibuto to parliament in an attempt to petition then speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga.

Ssegirinya and his colleague were intercepted by police and the Kibuto tv sets confiscated and taken as exhibits to CPS in Kampala.

Appearing in an interview on YouTube channel Kasuku live, the comical legislator revealed that he saw his Kibuto tv sets being used by police officers at CPS.

‘’police confiscated and took the tvs from me now they are using them to watch the news. When you go to CPS, it my TVs that they are using.’’

‘Now I am going to launch another attack demanding for my TVs, if the police want to continue using them, let them put it in writing requesting me to continue using them.’’

‘’When I was recently arrested I saw one that I had marked with my initials S’M’ for Ssegirinya Muhammad, all TVs at CPS are mine.’’

The almost always embattled law maker is still recovering from the after effects of being in prison for close to 2 years. Together with fellow NUP MP Allan Sewanyana they were granted bail in late February this year.
