The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has suspended parliament for a period of one week. Kadaga who was initially reluctant to suspend parliament was influenced by the fright of MPs. She asked MPs to work from home. “The house is adjourning to Tuesday next week.”
Kadaga ordered 3 legislators and 2 staff members to stay away from the precincts of parliament.
The members of parliament ordered are Hon. Ssekitoleko Kafeero member of parliament Nakifuma Constituency, Hon. Cissy Namujju Lwengo Mp and Hon. Ssempala Kigozi member of parliament for Makindye Ssabagabo.
The three MPs travelled from Dubai in the past two weeks. The Ministry of Health made a call to people who returned from Dubai in the last two weeks to report to the Ministry for screening. This was after all the Ugandans who have tested positive of coronavirus picking it from Dubai.
