Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has condemned yesterday’s attack by two men on parliament, and called on Members of Parliament to sensitize their constituents on proper ways of expressing their views.
During yesterday’s plenary, two protesters jumped from the public gallery onto the house floor; forcing members of parliament to scamper for safety.
The men, who claim to be from the “Red Top Brigade Movement” paralyzed business as they creamed on top of their voices and threw around copies of the printed manifesto, before they were apprehended by the Sergeant at Arms and Police.
Commenting about the incident, Speaker Kadaga identified the protesters as Dafara Ssekanjako and Charlese Mutaasa Kafeero Charles, both from Kawempe South.
The speaker urged the MPs to encourage their constituents to visit Parliament on appointment and inform Police in time if they want to protest.
“If they want to protest they also inform us so that they are advised how to protest but not to invade this chamber,” Kadaga pointed out.
