MPs ‘Isolate’ Twinamasiko over ‘Wife-Beating’ Comments, Legislator to be Grilled Today
MP Onesimus Twinamasiko to Explain 'Wife-Beating' Comments
MP ONESIMUS TWINAMASIKO ISOLATED
And when parliament resumed on Tuesday, Twinamasiko, sat alone, isolated.
The MPs, mostly women, would later express their disappointment with the MP, also a former presenter at state broadcaster UBC.
Kamwenge Woman MP Dorothy Azairwe demanded that Twinamasiko ‘withdraws his statements’ and apologizes to the nation.
Lira Woman MP Joy Atim Ongom added that it was absurd for “somebody who is supposed to legislate on behalf of the country to speak like that”.
“We urge the honourable member to make an apology otherwise we are not ready to deal with him,” added Mitooma Woman MP Jovah Kamateeka.
Deputy speaker Oulanyah said Twinamasiko will make a statement on Wednesday.
