Dokolo Member of Parliament Hon. Flex Okot Ogong has brought to attention of the house the fact that Foreign Affairs minister has repeatedly missed seatings under unclear circumstances.
According to the information revealed, Hon. Sam Kutesa has missed more than fifteen plenary sittings with no clear information given to parliament.
According to the parliamentary rules of procedure, when a legislator misses plenary for 15 consecutive times without informing the House, he or she is supposed to be relieved of his seat.
However, the Deputy speaker Rt.Hon.Jacob Oulanyah said he is yet to make a decision on the issue.
In the Previous 9th Parliament, two legislators Hon. Tony Kipoi and UPDF representative David Sejusa lost their seats due to failure to attend plenary.
