Uganda Prisons Services has refuted allegations of torturing legislators Ssegirinya Muhammad and Allan Ssewanyana in detention.

Frank Baine, the Prisons Spokesperson rectified that Hon. Ssegirinya was brought to prison while diabetic and so there has not been any form of torture.

“It has never been in our interest that we torture our family members. Yes, Hon. Ssegirinya Muhammad is suffering from diabetes, and other ailments and we are treating him for as long as he is with us. Many times we receive these inmates from Court when they are already sick,” Baine said.

Baine emphasized that as Prisons, they do not torture but rehabilitate people.
