KASESE WOMAN MP IN HOT SOUP OVER MURDER COMMENTS
Kasese woman Member of Parliament Winfred Kiiza has been summoned by the Criminal Investigations and Intelligence headquarters of police at Kibuli to answer queries over a press conference she held in Kasese town last year.
In a summon issued by the Emmanuel Mbonimba on behalf of the CIID dated April 15th, Winfred Kiiza is supposed to respond over issues she raised in a press conference she held at the Rwenzori the Gardens Hotel in Kasese town on September 22, 2012 complaining about lack of police reports on the rampant murders in Kasese.
According to the summon that was sent through the office of the Speaker of Parliament, Kiiza was supposed to appear on Thursday at 2pm at the CIID headquarters in Kibuli.
She is being required to give more details to the police about the concerns she raised about the killings during the press conference.
However, the MP who confirmed receiving the summons did not appear at the CIID today after her lawyer Mr. Wandera Ogalo asked for the postponement of the grilling.
According to Kiiza, her lawyer rang the CIID bosses saying they were not ready to appear because of other engagements at parliament.
She will then appear before the detectives on Monday at 2pm. END
