Bukomansimbi County Member of Parliament (MP) Deogratius Kiyingi has been suspended from the Buganda Parliamentary caucus.
The bitter Buganda region legislators suspended MP Kiyingi because of questioning the financing of the reconstruction of Kasubi Royal Tombs.
MP Kiyingi made the statements during a closed door Buganda caucus meet last week. Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze Bakireke had suggested that Buganda caucus MPs should fundraise money from amongst themselves to assist in the reconstruction of the tombs.
In response to Nambooze’s suggestion, MP Kiyingi inquired to know for how long well-wishers will continue to fundraise for the reconstruction of the tombs.
He noted that fundraising to reconstruct the Tombs has been constant since the fire which destroyed part of the Tombs in 2010.
