The Aruu county MP Odonga Otto today had a hot verbal exchange with investment minister Evelyn Anite.
It started during plenary sitting with Odonga Otto requesting for Anite to be arraigned before the parliamentary disciplinary committee for exposing the names of the Mps who are in support the removal of the presidential age limit whose lives he said are now at risk.
“This afternoon a woman was attacked in down town Kampala by some people who suspected that she was the Rakai Woman MP” Odonga Otto said.
Otto also said Anite placed fear on citizens when she said they(ruling party) have the backing of the army.
He then requested the Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah to discipline the minister by banning her from the house for 8 years.
The deputy speaker however requested Otto to file a proper motion.
After the house was adjourned, Otto told journalists that he will file a proper motion against Anite adding that “Anite is a beast” likening her to the former president Iddi Amin.
“No wonder she is even from the same district Amin was from”. – He said.
Anite who was irked by Otto’s utterances said the Aruu county MP was drunk when he went to parliament. She accused Odonga Otto of playing double standards saying he has unsuccessfully been trying to meet president Museveni to milk money from him.
This prompted Otto to respond , “She is bogus! These are people that are being used to disrupt the country. She should come to me; I hear she has been looking for me.”
Today’s plenary was prematurely ended after the deputy speaker failed to put the house to order. It was adjourned to Tuesday.
