Kadaga said she declined to grant leave to the lawmaker because it lacked supporting documents to qualify for the maximum leave of 90 days.

Kadaga also told the house that she can now not account for his absence in parliament.

“I asked Kipoi to appear in person at my office for a way forward but I never saw him. I was shocked to see from the media that Kipoi was arrested in the jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo,” said Kadaga.

The speaker’s remarks comes days after reports that the MP had been abducted by FARDC (Congo forces) deep in the Ituri forests last Thursday, two days after FARDC raided the area where suspected rebels were believed have been training new recruits.

Kipoi is a treason suspect out on bail with all his travel documents in the hands of court.

It is alleged Kipoi has been training a new rebel group known as “Red Army” to topple President Yoweri Museveni’s government.
