The Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Mr Mathias Mpuuga has today asked opposition MPs to defy committee chairpersons who attempt to throw them out of committee meetings because they are boycotting plenary sittings, saying such decisions are illegal and lacking in common sense.
This is after Speaker Anitah Among’s order to bar opposition lawmakers from committee meetings, started on staggering footing yesterday amid questions about its legality.
Mpuuga has now called on the committee chairpersons to desist from attempting to enforce what is unenforceable.
