Several Members of Parliament from the ruling National Resistance Movement today took to the floor to shower praises at the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga for close to three hours in a House abandoned by the Opposition.
The Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura has said he planned and coordinated the raid on Parliament on Wednesday in which security forces arrested 24 legislators. Kayihuras revelation comes hours after the police forensic team commenced investigations into violence and vandalism of property that unfolded inside the Chambers on Wednesday, shortly before a motion to remove presidential age limits was tabled.
Opposition Members of Parliament have condemned the manner in which 25 MPs suspended from the House were manhandled by security. Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga suspended 25 members for instigating chaos which led to the suspension of the house proceedings on Tuesday.
