Turinawe embarrassed at EALA debate

Must read

Members of Parliament have snubbed Forum for Democratic Change strongwoman Ingrid Turinawe, with one MP taking a microphone away from her. Ms Turinawe, who said she would ‘advocate for the minority in this country’ was booed by the MPs, some of who carried placards denouncing her candidature and ‘behavior’. They also recited stanzas denigrating her.

Names of EALA candidates cleared by Parliament

Ever since she joined the race for EALA, Ms Turinawe has not found the going easy, with the FDC withdrawing her candidature last Friday. She however insisted on participating in the race, buoyed by a letter from the Clerk to Parliament Jane Kibirige, who said her withdrawal was not in consonance with the Parliament’s rules of procedure.

There are 47 people vying for the nine slots at the regional Parliament in Arusha; the National Resistance Movement (NRM) has already chosen its six representatives, leaving the other parties with representation in Parliament and Independents to struggle for the remaining three slots.
