Hon. Kaddu Mukasa and Issa Kikungwe representing Mityana South, and Kyandondo South respectively, have consistently missed attending the House without informing the Speaker.

The Speaker therefore, has decided to forward the names to the disciplinary committee for disciplinary action.

“I urge Members of this House to communicate whenever they are not able to attend and to always remember to sign the register whenever they come to the House,” the Speaker said.

The Speaker highlighted the tendency of Members of Parliament failing to register whenever they come to the house.

Prior to this, Hon. General David Sejusa and Hon. Tonny Kipoi who continued to  absent themselves from the House for fifteen or more sittings without the permission of the Speaker were summoned by Standing Committee on Rules, Privileges and Discipline Committee, and consequently expelled from Parliament.
