The Deputy Speaker, Mr. Thomas Tayebwa this afternoon forced to temporarily suspend House business after tempers flared during plenary over a video in which Mityana Municipality MP, Hon. Francis Zaake is said to have made defamatory statements against the Rakai Woman MP, Hon. Juliet Kinyamatama.
Shortly after plenary commenced, Ms. Kinyamatama asked Parliament to intervene in what she described as the actions and demeaning statements that Mr. Zaake is said to have made against her on October 9 at one of the rallies held in her constituency in Rakai District.
In a matter of procedure on the 9th of October, she said their, the Hon Zaake went to her constituency and used defamatory words she can’t say in parliament against her and asked that the ICT department plays the video. END
