A Kampala Court has summoned a Ugandan Member of Parliament for being a public nuisance.

The Kampala City Hall Court on Wednesday issued criminal summons against Arua Municipality lawmaker Ibrahim Abiriga after he admitted to urinating near the Ministry of Finance within the city’s CBD.

In an earlier interview, the lawmaker confessed to answering the call of nature in public, stating he was “badly off”.

He could later describe a photo showing him inside act as “hopeless.”

He also blamed journalists for what he described as the “mess” of the photo in which has since gone viral.


“I was badly off. Should I have kept urine on myself?” he told NBS TV.

“You journalists are the ones behind This specific mess, spreading in which picture on WhatsApp. I was badly off, I wanted to urinate, I jumped a bit to ease myself. How can I keep urine on me?” he posed.

Still, sections of the Ugandan media have  continued to question the act.

“The Ministry of Finance is usually a few metres via parliament, where the MP could easily access the toilets. Besides, there are offices nearby where he (Abiriga) could easily access the toilets,” a local daily reported.
