Kadaga Suspends Parliament Business Over Missing MPs

Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga has Wednesday suspended parliament business for one hour demanding government to explain the whereabouts of the missing legislators.

The missing MPs were reportedly arrested on Monday evening in Arua town following a scuffle that left President Museveni’s car vandalized and Bobi Wine’s driver shot dead.

Among the missing MPs include Kyadondo East’s Robert Kyagulanyi, Jinja Municipality’s Paul Mwiru, Ntungamo Municipality’s Gerald Karuhanga, Kasule Mabike, Abola among others.

Independent candidate Kassiano Wadri is also among those whose whereabouts are unknown.

On Tuesday, Parliamentarians stopped Internal Affairs Minister Jeje Odong from presenting a paper about Arua chaos.

Members claimed that the minister had not gathered any information but was just reading a Police Press Release.

By publication time, elections were still ongoing in Arua.
