Joseph Ssewungu, Barnabas Tinkasiimire, Muwanga Kivumbi and Medard Lubega Ssegona are the others suspended.

The Speaker has suspended the sitting to allow the MPs exit the House or be evicted by the Sergeant at Arms.

Sources said those thrown out were arrested and taken to different police stations including Kiira and Naggalama.

Meanwhile, the Archbishop of Gulu John Baptist Odama has called for sanity in Parliament following the chaos that has engulfed the house for the last two days, after MPs exchanged blows over the presidential age limit.

Archbishop Odama also said there is no reason as to why the Constitution should be amended.

“The age limit safeguard has never been tested by any president why amend it without any cause,” Bishop Ondama said adding that it is even not clear why there is even a debate.

He urged Ugandans to avoid partisan attitudes while dealing with national issues and to respect the values of the people of Uganda.
