NSSF probe: legislators turn heat on Kiwanuka

Parliament has ordered Internal Affairs minister, Gen Aronda Nyakairima. to investigate why the police have not arrested suspects who beat up Kibaale District Woman MP Robinah Nabbanja on Wednesday.

Parliament Speaker, Ms Rebecca Kadaga’s directive on Thursday, followed claims by Ms Nabbanja that police in Kibaale refused to investigate her assault.

“I sustained injuries in the face. I got embarrassed in front of my voters, especially when I saw him (Kibaale District Police Commander Ojokuna Oratu) drive the culprits from Kakumiro Police Station to their respective homes,” said Ms Nabbanja.

“This shows what people of Kibaale go through in accessing justice. The Internal Affairs minister should see that I get justice as well as those who have always been treated the same way,” she said.
