The directorate of Criminal Investigations has summoned Aringa South Member of Parliament, Odria Yorke Alioni, to appear before its detectives tomorrow over punching the Officer-In-charge of Parliament Security, Assistant Superintendent of Police Alex Senga.
MP Odria was captured on cameras punching ASP Senga on Thursday last week as he protested what he termed as vote rigging during poll casting for people going to represent Uganda in the East African Legislative Assembly -EALA.
The video that went viral shows MP Odria carrying the ballot box as he repeatedly shouted ‘vote rigging’.
Fred Enanga, the Police Spokesperson said Odria’s action of grabbing the ballot box was in total disregard of the electoral process and thus sergeant at arms officers thought it wise to remove it from him.
Police have said Odria must appear at CID headquarters tomorrow without fail for statement recording as part of the process of getting justice for the person on whom he exhibited his behavior.
