Songs of victory were witnessed as sung by NRM activists who went out to defend the speaker of Parliament Hon. Rebecca Kadaga in court after she was sued by the rejected Member of Parliament.
The incidence took place at Twed Towers where the Court advised Suspended MPs to take the case in the constitution court.
This showed that the MPs needed an appropriate action and ruling yet the civil court could not handle such cases
In the rulling as read by the Deputy Registrar Joy Kabagye, Judge Margret Oumo said she lacked jurisdiction to hear the case since it is a constitutional matter.
The NRM activists were seen possessing posters that displayed various information before going to the court for the hearing.
“The role of parliament is to pass laws, Leave Kadaga alone, Kadaga followed the constitution, are some of the direct messages that were displayed on the posters of the NRM fans of Kadaga.
Joseph Kamukama, one of the activists said that it was wrong for the suspended Members of Parliament to take Hon Kadaga to the courts of law yet the act she did was correct.
“Kadaga simply followed the constitution. These MPs just need to learn how things are done here in Uganda “noted Kamukama.
The Lord Mayor of Kampala Erias Lukwago called the rulling a strange one. According to him, he was surprised to see the Clark and judge who came when they were ready to hear both sides instead giving out a rulling.
“The court is a place where people have to run to. Those whose rights have been violated, and many more, this is where they have to run to be relieved. But instead it has become a place of torture.” Lukwago said.
He continued to show his grief that he respects the trial judge though he does not respect the manner in which the case was handled.
The six MPs including Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, Allan Ssewanyana, Gerald Karuhanga, Jonathan Odur, Anthony Akol and Mubarak Manyangwa were suspended for masterminding chaos in Parliament.
