The currently bedridden Member of Parliament for Nakawa division, Michael Kabaziguruka has vowed to attend the expected start of age limit amendment debate on Thursday afternoon.
Kabaziguruka who got involved in a serious motor accident on July 30th 2017 and still cannot walk or stand, told our reporter on phone on Wednesday night that he would endeavor to attend the plenary.
He promised to get to Parliament by whatever means possible “weather on wheel chair or stretcher,” to witness and participate on what he described as a crucial moment in the country.
Hon Kabaziguruka’s right leg was shattered in the accident which involved in new ambulance he was driving.
He says doctors have done a series of operations to correct it and told him he would not be able to walk on his own in the next three months or so.
He said however, that the matter taking place at Parliament today is one that he cannot afford to miss.
“The people who voted for me, chose me to represent them and at the moment, this (age limit bill) is the biggest issue. I cannot afford to be at home sleeping. I would rather sacrifice myself, go out there and represent my people on such a crucial matter,” said the MP.
“I will be at parliament tomorrow, by whatever means possible; whether by wheel chair, or stretcher or my voters carrying me; I will be there.”
