MP Ssewanyana Kicked out of Parliament

Controversial lawmaker Allan Ssewanyana has been forced to leave Parliament’s plenary session after appearing in what his colleagues described as an “overall”. It all started with MP Mohammed Nsereko raising a point of order against the dress code of Hon Ibrahim Abiriga who was wearing a cap. The Speaker ruled ordering all MPs putting on caps and hats to remove them immediately though the opposition members refused. A few minutes after, Ssewanyana moved into the chambers clad in an overall. This prompted the Government Chief whip Ruth Nankabirwa to move a point of order questioning Ssewanyana’s dress code. Nankabirwa wondered why Ssewanyana was “dressed as if he is on a construction site.” MP Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda rose to his rescue, telling the house that the member lost his suit the day MPs were assaulted by security forces. This argument didn’t convince the Speaker who ruled members should uphold the rule of Procedure and that Ssewanyana excuses himself from the sitting. “Besides, the Commission pays the member enough money to afford new suits,” Kadaga, ordering Ssewanyana to exit the chambers. Ssewanyana had earlier in the day told reporters he couldn’t risk his suits following the incidents that occurred on September 27 The MPs are discussing several issues of national importance as they await the tabling of the a committee report on the age limit Bill.
