Controversial NRM lawmaker Ibrahim Abiriga has warned of tough times ahead following the disruption of today’s plenary by opposition MPs.
The debate was characterized by whistling and heckling, making it difficult for debate to take place.
Despite assurances that the anticipated motion on amendment of the constitutional presidential age limit was not part of the agenda, MPs kept shouting and exchanging words.
This compelled Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanya to postpone the plenary session to next Tuesday.
Following today’s developments, Abiriga said opposition should expect a firm response.
“What we have seen today from the opposition is nothing,” warned Abiriga.
“They are now jubilating and dancing because of the freedom that NRM has provided,” he observed.
“They have even smuggled in ribbons and tied their heads but for us we are not jubilating.”
He said the “motion will come any time,” adding, “There is a short cut and we are going to use a shortcut.”
He didn’t give details of the ‘shortcut’ before being driven away in his yellow car.
