“I want to inform the Ugandans that God is great, Hon Muhammad Segirinya has been discharged from Aga Khan Hospital after spending 186 days,” Luwemba said, before thanking President Museveni for covering all the medical bills for the opposition legislator.

“I want to thank the Parliament for covering the medical bills, I also want to thank the National Unity Platform party for the support,” he added.

Ssegirinya’s illness

Mr Ssegirinya was admitted to Aga Khan Hospital, six months ago shortly after he was returned from the Amsterdam Universitair Medische Centra, Netherlands, where he had been referred for treatment

He had been transferred to the hospital on August 10, 2023, from the Netherlands where he had been receiving medical treatment since August 1, 2023

The Kawempe North legislator had been flown out after doctors in Uganda recommended due to the increased illness, which he reportedly got while in prison.

Mr Ssegirinya had by then just been released from Luzira prison together with his Makindye East counterpart, Mr Allan Ssewanyana where they had spent almost two years on remand after being accused of orchestrating the machete attacks in the greater Masaka sub-region.
