LIVE: Suspended MPs thrown out of parliament

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The “Age Limit” motion was finally tabled in parliament after another chaotic day in Uganda’s parliament.

Speaker Rebecca Kadaga started Wednesday’s session of parliament by suspending 25 MPs for unruly behaviour on Tuesday, triggering chaos in the house.

Fighting ensued as plain-clothes security operatives stormed parliament to help throw out the suspended but defiant Members of Parliament (MPs).

When the house resumed an hour later, the remaining Opposition MPs walked out, leaving MP Raphael Magyezi (Igara West,NRM) to table uninterrupted, a motion seeking leave of parliament to introduce an omnibus Private Member’s Bill to amend Articles 102 (b), 108(3a) and 108(4) of the constitution. It has been referred to many as the “Age Limit” debate.

MP Moses Balyeku moved to second the motion.

Earlier, Kadaga announced she had also suspended state Minister Ronald Kibule, as she says he had a gun as alleged by the opposition a day earlier.

Leading Opposition MPs Nandala Mafabi, Muwanga Kivumbi, Medard Ssegona and Odonga Otto were amonth those suspended and forced out. Others are Ssewungu, Tinkasiimire,  Osegge, Niwagaba, , Munyangwa, Nambeshe, Mbwatekamwa and Mugume – all suspended from the next three sittings.

Also suspended are Kibuule, Ssewanyana, Amoding, Lyomoki, Kasibante, Nambooze, Kyagulanyi, Zaake, Kasozi, Nzohgu and Olanya.

Quoting rule 80(2) of the rules of procedure, Kadaga named the 25 that were suspended for three Parliamentary sittings and added that the suspension had taken effect.
