Comments 868 Views Kampala, Uganda

 

Parliament on Wednesday afternoon witnessed yet another round of chaotic scenes as plain clothed security personnel raised the house to evict 25 legislators who had been suspended by the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga.

The 25 MPs were suspended for alleged misconduct and disrupting parliament business a day earlier.  The legislators comprising mainly of opposition members, engaged security in fights leading to the destruction of microphones and benches in the chamber.
