Two unemployed youth who allegedly sneaked into Parliament with piglets early this month are expected to re-appear in court today for mention of the case.
The duo is to appear before Buganda road Court Grade One Magistrate Marion Mangeni to know the stage of investigations in their case and to argue out on their bail application.
Ruta Ferdinand and Joseph Lukwago currently on remand at Luzira Prison are charged with two offences of being a common nuisance and violating animal rights.
Prosecution states that the duo on 15th September 2016 sneaked into Parliamentary premises with piglets labeled with MPs names, protesting the alleged extravagant expenditure by the parliament.
The incident followed reports that about Sh 86bn is to be spent on purchase of MPs’ vehicles while another Sh1.9bn has already been spent on MPs’ Ipads.
There were also reports that parliament planned to spend Sh 600m on its forthcoming Golden Jubilee celebrations slated for September 26th, a claim the Speaker Rebbeca Kadaga has vehemently denied.
