Leader of Opposition in Parliament says Court is dodging its work
Following the high court in Kampala’s decision to send the mps suspension case, in which they are seeking court’s cross-examination of the conduct of the speaker, Rabecca Kadaga to the constitutional court, the leader of opposition says the court is only dodging its responsibility which denies them the opportunity to be heard.
The Mps ran to court to challenge the suspension of six mps during the debate to lift the presidential age limit that has since been passed by Parliament and was on 27/December/2017 signed into law by President Yoweri Museveni. The suspended MPs Gerald Karuhanga , Jonathan Odur, Mubarrak Munyangwa, Anthony Akol, Allan Ssewanyana and Ibrahim Semujju Nganda, accuse the speaker of ordering them out of parliamentary chambers without giving them a hearing.
Winnie Kiiza now says these actions deprive them of the freedom of speech. Meanwhile, Speaker Kadaga’s supporters who stormed court say what was done was constitutional.
