The Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze Bakireke is expected to appear before Nakawa court to honor her second criminal summons.

On the 8th of November, Grade one magistrate Noah Sajjabi issued Nambooze with a second set of criminal summons after she failed to turn up in court for mention of her case in time.

Nambooze is charged with incitement of mebers of public to commit offenses against Government officials , an offense she denied ever committing .

Prosecution states that on the 9th of June 2018, through uttering and writings in the media, Nambooze incited the public to attack and murder public figures however guarded they could be since government could not secure them .

Namboze was summoned by police to explain her words just after a few days when assailants had attacked and gunned down the former Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiriga near his home in Mattuga.
