MP Abiriga a no-show in court over urinating in public place

The case in which Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiriga is accused of being a nuisance when he urinated near the Finance ministry gate has been deferred.

City Hall Court on Friday adjourned Mr Abiriga’s case to October 25 after he failed to show up.

His lawyer, Usaama Sebuufu told court presided over by Grade One Magistrate Moses Nabende that his client did not show up in court because he had been served late.

MP Abiriga who has lately been in the news for being an ardent supporter of the proposal to lift presidential age limit from the Constitution and for dressing in bright yellow- the NRM party colour- had promised to show up in court without fail.

According to Section 27 of the Local Governments (Kampala City Council) Maintenance of the Law and Order Ordinance, 2006; Abiriga on conviction, faces a fine not exceeding two currency points (about Shs40,000) or imprisonment not exceeding two months or both punishments
