KAMPALA–Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze has returned from India where she had gone for spinal operations.

Nambooze is among the 24 MPs who were assaulted last month when security personnel raided Parliament.

Nambooze landed at Entebbe International Airport at about 1pm. By press time, Nambooze was accompanied by a convoy, heading to St. Augustine Church, Seeta Mukono, where a thanksgiving ceremony is set to be conducted.

According to a witness at Entebbe Airport, Nambooze is been driven in an ambulance vehicle.

MP Francis Zaake is also in USA seeking advanced treatment using part of the Shs29m given to him for consultation on the lifting of the Presidential age limit.

Zaake last week wrote to the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga, asking for more funds to enable him pay the hospital bills.
The security agents Nambooze claimed to be SFC damaged her spinal cord when they were forcefully evicting the legislators opposed to the amendment of Article 102(b) of the Constitution.

At the beginning of this month, Nambooze set off from the Bugolobi Medical Centre, where she has been admitted since last month.

During her absence, Ibrahim Semujju Nganda, the Kira Municipality MP, has been acting on her behalf.

“I have also returned the Shs29m given me to conduct consultations on the age limit bill,” she added.

Recently, Kadaga wrote to the President asking him to the reason for deploying security agents to raid Parliament.

According to a story published in Thursday’s Daily Monitor, Speaker Kadaga wants to know why MPs were manhandled, arrested and detained. Many legislators, especially those opposed to the lifting of the age limit are blocked from convening rallies.

Parliament went into recess for almost two months after Kadaga suspended 24 legislators. It’s expected to reopen on Tuesday next week.
