An additional 70 MPs take oath in the afternoon.

Akena’s wife Betty Amongi who represents Oyam South and remains the Chairperson of Uganda Women Parliamentary Association is among those taking oath today.

The strict guideline from the Clerk’s office only permits each MP to enter Parliament with a maximum of 5 guests and a single car.

“Because of limited space each MP elect is allowed to be accompanied by only 5 guests and parking will be provided for only one vehicle.

Public service vehicles or trucks will not be allowed to access Parliament due to the formation of the Parking yard,” part of the guideline reads.

ChimpReports will provide live coverage of the event both on our website and social media platforms.
