Kampala Woman Member of Parliament Shamim Malende has vowed to continue her legal services to detained NUP supporters after she returned to the country from a hospital in Nairobi where she has been undergoing treatment for nearly five months.
Speaking to journalists after her return on Monday, 27 February 2023, Malende, who was in a wheel chair, said now that she is better, she will continue with her legal services to NUP MPs Allan Ssewanyana and Muhammad Ssegirinya who are facing terrorism and murder charges, and other party members in detention.
“The power of prayer, thank you my people for being there for me. May God continue to bless you,” she said.
Malende was first admitted at the Uganda Martyrs Hospital in Lubaga Division, Kampala after she reportedly suffered a seizure while at her Kawempe residence on November 13, 2022.
