Kampala Capital City Authority Court presided over by Grade One Magistrate; Moses Nabenda has extended criminal sermons against Arua Municipality MP, Col. Ibrahim Abiriga who was accused of being a public nuisance.
Court recently summoned the MP for urinating on a wall fence of the Ministry of Finance, a meters from parliament.
This is contravention of Section 27 of the Local Government [Kampala City Council] Maintenance of Law and Order Ordinance (2006).
Abiriga was represented at Court by his lawyer, Usama Ssebufu who told the magistrate that his client was unable to make it to Court due to his busy schedule; attending to his constituents.
Ssebufu added that his client was served late (on Wednesday) and had already traveled back to his constituency.
The Magistrate resolved to extend the criminal sermons against Abiriga and adjourned the case to October 25.
Ever since the photos of the legislator committing the misdemeanor emerged on social media, he came out and admitted, telling the media that at the time he was “badly off.”
