State Minister for Water Resources, Ronald Kibuule has been suspended from Parliament for possession of a firearm inside the August House.
MP Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda on Tuesday alleged that Kibuule had threatened to kill him.
Nganda further alleged that Kibuule had walked into the chambers with a gun.
Speaker Rebecca Kadaga responded by ordering a physical check of all MPs but no gun was found.
Kadaga, however, promised to use the Parliament CCTV Cameras to establish whether indeed Kibuule had a gun.
During today’s plenary session, Kadaga confirmed that Kibuule was armed.
“Honorable members, I’ve got reliable information that the Honorable Kibuule had a gun,” said Kadaga, confirming opposition MPs’ accusations.
It remains unclear why Kibuule entered Parliament with a firearm.
Such weapons are supposed to be deposited with security personnel before accessing the House.
Meanwhile, Kibuule is among several MPs suspended from the House for three sittings due to misconduct.
In Total Speaker Kadaga has suspended 25 members of Parliament and majority of them are from opposition.
Suspended MPs: Ronlad Kibuule, Allan Ssewanyana, Amoding, Lyomoki, Moses Kasibante, Betty Nambooze Bakireke, Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu, Zaake, Kasozi, Nzohgu, Olanya, Odur, Muhammad Nsereko. MORE: Osege, Niwagaba Odonga Otto, Nandala Mafabi, Munyangwa, Nambeshe, Mbwatekamwa and Mugume.
