Masaka Chief Magistrate Court has dismissed a case in which Lwemiyaga County MP Theodore Ssekikubo had been accused of inciting violence.
The outspoken ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) legislator had been accused of committing the offence in January last year.
However, Charles Yeteise, the Masaka chief magistrate dismissed the case yesterday after prosecution failed to adduce enough evidence against the MP.
MP Ssekikubo had been accused of leading herdsmen on January 3rd, 2020 to take cattle to Lwemiyaga Market which had been reportedly closed following the outbreak of foot- and -mouth disease in the area.
The State had also accused the MP of mobilizing cattle traders in his constituency to attack businesses of milk traders who were operating freely.
