Norbert Mao – Kadaga should resign immediately

By Damali Mukhaye:

The Democratic Party president Norbert Mao has said that the speaker of parliament Hon Rebecca Kadaga should resign immediately after what transpired in parliament this afternoon.

The call follows the speaker suspending 25 members of parliament and later security forces dragging the suspended members forcefully out of parliament by security agencies.

Now according to the statement issued by Mao, today has been a sad day in the history of Uganda, Since it was the first time the chamber of parliament has been invaded by members of the armed forces dressed in civilian clothes.

He notes that Kadaga has failed in her task of protecting the prestige, purity and independence of the parliament asserting that the unwarranted and intimidating siege of parliament by the military should be denounced by all those who love law and order.

He also called for the unconditional release of the MPs that have been arrested.
