A team of officers from Uganda Human Rights Commission headed by their boss Meddie Kaggwa have visited Mukono Municipality MP, Betty Nambooze in hospital where she is also a prisoner.

A team which also had the Commission’s Legal Director visited Nambooze in her ward at Kiruddu Hospital after receiving a petition from Nambooze’s lawyer Erias Lukwago about her plight.

Nambooze has been hospitalized and denied a police bond, beyond 48 hours since she was detained last week at Naggalama police station, from where she developed health complications.

The legislator was bound to receive medical attention in India was arrested on allegations that she incited killers of the late Ibrahim Abiriga who was assassinated two weeks ago near his home in Kawanda in Wakiso district.

The team from U.H.R.C arrived at the Kiruddu hospiral and found Nambooze wearing a “Lumbo Sacral Belt” to support her back, upon doctors’ prescription.

Earlier in the morning, medics were forced to wire the MP with nerve stimulus gear, due to failure of her nerves to function. People taking care of the legislator say the condition has been orchestrated by both the physical and emotional torture that the Mukono Municipality Legislator has undergone since detention on Thursday 13 July, 2018.

Nambooze is being detained under a 24 hour police surveillance.
