The mother of a Ugandan legislator has stormed parliament over the detention and ill health of her son.
Justine Nakajumba, the mother of Kawempe North MP Muhammad Ssegirinya, has walked to parliamentary buildings where she has been received by female guards.
She is demanding to speak to parliament speaker, Jacob Oulanyah.
Mr Ssegirinya – who is in opposition – was charged in September in connection with the rebel activities in Masaka region.
His health deteriorated while in detention and leaders have been calling for him to be allowed to seek proper medical care.
Prison authorities took him to the national referral hospital where he was admitted.
