It wasn’t clear why the MP didn’t observe the dressing code of the house but understandably, he is a new member.

Mukasa was asked by the Deputy Speaker to excuse himself from the sitting before being forced out and he complied.

The house was also treated to lighter moments when the Minister without Portfolio, Hajji Abdul Nadduli took up oath as an ex-officio of the 10th Parliament.

Nadduli who perfectly took oath without any grammatical errors was praised by members as they clapped for him. He danced a bit to the clapping before he received the Constitution and the Rules of Procedure from the Deputy Speaker.
