Grade One Magistrate, Sienna Owomugisha issued the warrant despite Nsubuga’s lawyer presenting a medical form that indicated that the MP was on a three day bedrest as he recovers from malaria.
State prosecutor Judith Nyamwizi, objected told court the MP and his legal team were playing games which should not be entertained.
