Members of Parliament have called for investigations into what they called an attack on the Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Hon Anitah Among.
“I want this issue of the attack on the Deputy Speaker of Parliament to be investigated. It started with Kazibwe, you attacked Rebecca Kadaga and now an attack on Anitah Among,” said Hon Cecilia Ogwal during Tuesday plenary.
She said the institution of Parliament cannot be attacked and they keep silent.
“I will not be intimidated by anybody. I am emotionally strong and I want to assure you that I am Deputy Speaker for the next 10 years,” Among told plenary.
She asked the women leaders not to be intimidated by those who want to bring them down, please stand firm and “I can assure you that I am here for ten years as deputy speaker and ten as speaker”.
“We know the people who are doing these things and we are not moved. As I said investigations are already going on and we already know the persons.”
“Please stand firm; I assure you that I am here for ten years as deputy speaker and ten as speaker.”
