While addressing the press on Tuesday at the DP headquarters, Mbidde strongly warned anyone tampering to issue any statement regarding the same subject since the matter is before court.


Mbidde asserts that the action which was soon to be undertaken by the assembly contravenes with the rules and procedures which govern the assembly.


He defended the Speaker for not allowing the Assembly meetings to be conducted on a rotation basis as demanded by the members but designate an assembling point which is in Nairobi Kenya.

Ziwa

It is noted that so far, 15 legislators have signed a petition to have Zziwa impeached as the Assembly Speaker and this has created tough times ahead of her.


All the scuffle dates back to last year when Zziwa shot down a proposal by Kenya to have each of the bloc’s five members host EALA sittings for one year during its five-year terms.


Ms Zziwa said then that it was not the appropriate time to discuss the issue.


This miffed not just the Kenyans but the Rwandese too, who, having just recently joined the bloc, would have wanted to host its sessions for at least one year straight instead of just a fortnight.


Hosting the sessions is good for the politicians who feel big to have hosted the assembly during their term in office and further more it boosts business within the host country as members have to spend via accommodation and the like.
