Kampala Woman Member of Parliament Nabila Nagayi Ssempala was Friday evening rushed to an unknown intensive health care unit after ramming 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 an undisclosed location reportedly for medical treatment 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.
She was on her way 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.
