The Speaker of Parliament has referred Kipoi’s case to the rules committee.
Rebecca Kadaga has directed the Rules Privileges and Discipline committee to investigate the conduct of Bubulo East MP Tonny Kipoi.
The directive follows Kipoi’s failure to respond to the Speaker‘s earlier call for an explanation as to why he missed more than 15 sittings without permission.
Kadaga said that the committee should start investigations immediately and report to parliament by the 20th of December.
Kipoi becomes the second MP to be investigated by the parliamentary committee on rules, privileges and discipline in the 9th parliament.
The first case that is yet to be concluded is that General David Sejusa.
