Parliamentary committee on East African Affairs has resolved to summon all Uganda’s representatives at the East African Assembly to explain why they stormed out of Parliament last week.
The business in the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) went on a stand last week, after MPs from Rwanda led others and stormed out of the House protesting against the way the Speaker Margret Zziwa blocked the discussion of a motion on rotation of the House sittings in the partner states.
Chairperson of East African Affairs Committee Sarah Mwebaza while addressing Journalists at Parliament said if Uganda’s representatives are found that they also stormed out to sabotage EALA speaker Zziwa’s work they risk being recalled.
She said, this is the time the members must show solidarity to their speaker Zziwa because Uganda is chairing but when they join the rest to storm out its setting a bad precedent.
The outspoken legislator from Rwanda Abdulkarim Harelimana is said have led the walkout after the Speaker Hon Margaret Nnatongo Zziwa shut down Peter Mathuki (Kenya) from presenting the motion which appeared to have divided the legislators for some time.
