Indiscipline: Tayebwa suspends 5 MPs

By Davis Mugabi

The Deputy Speaker, Thomas Tayebwa, has suspended five opposition Members of Parliament from attending plenary sitting for 3 days.

The suspended MPs are: Betty Nambooze (Mukono Municipality), Joyce Bagala (Mityana DWR), Derrick Nyeko (Makindye East), Frank Kabuye (Kassanda South) and Francis Zaake (Mityana Municipality).

The suspension is catered for under Rule 89(4).

Rule 89(4) states that, “If a member is suspended, his or her suspension in the first occasion in a session shall be for the next three sittings, excluding the sitting in which he or she was suspended; on the 2nd occasion in a session, for the next seven sittings, excluding the sitting in which he or she was suspended, and on the third and any subsequent occasion during the same session for the next 28 sittings of the house, excluding the sitting in which the member was suspended.“
