Kampala Woman MP Nabila Nagayi Ssempala is still admitted at International Hospital Kampala (IHK) in Namuwongo after a Friday evening accident left her with suspected broken limbs when her car rammed into a police patrol car.
The legislator, who was in a car Reg No UAM 484U, hit the police mobile van Reg No UP 1982 at around 7pm near Sanyu Babies Home along Wakaliga road.
Ssempala was driven off to IHK for medical attention in Forum for Demoractic Change (FDC) outgoing leader Dr. Kizza Besigye’s vehicle. Her supporters blocked police from taking her to hospital, and instead demanded she be driven in Besigye’s car.
The woman MP appeared unconscious shortly after the road mishap and is reportedly still in critical condition.
She was on her way back from addressing a political rally held at Ndeeba play grounds when the police patrol car screeched to a stop a few feet in front of her car. Her driver was not in time to stop the vehicle from ramming into the police van.
The police vehicle was trying to clear FDC supporters in procession after an Action for Change (A4C) rally which Ssempala was from staging.
