Katumba Wamala: Why I Punched MP Zaake in Age Limit Scuffle

Former commander of Defence Forces (CDF) Gen Katumba Wamala has spoken out on his involvement is an age limit motion scuffle on Wednesday.

MPs opposed to the lifting of the age limit to allow President Museveni rule beyond the age of 75, engaged in a scuffle with Special Forces Brigade (SFC) after they refused to leave the Parliament chambers when Speaker Rebecca Kadaga suspended them.

A photo of Wamala, also junior works and transport minister, aiming a punch at Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake has gone viral.

MP Zaake is currently admitted at Rubaga Hospital, nursing injuries from the scuffle.

Wamala says he punched Zaake  “because he was selling ice cream in form of breaking chairs and destroying Parliament property in the process”.
