Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah this afternoon showed up in the chambers only to be welcomed by a handful of ‘cold-bloodied’ legislators, prompting him to adjourn the sitting. He said that there were no ministers on the front desk to respond to issues raised on the floor because most of them had travelled to attend the burial.
“We have some emergencies to handle; to support a colleague who is a member of this House following a tragedy that has befallen him. So we will not be able to proceed. All ministers, committee chairpersons and other MPs are already there [to attend the burial of Hon Kibuule’s twins]. So, House adjourned to tomorrow [Thursday],” Oulanyah said.
MPs were today expected to among others pass the Roads Bill, 2018 and start processing the National Budget.
