There were chaos in Parliament earlier today as members of Parliament engaged in a first fight during debate on the controversial political parties bill. National assembly minority leader John Mbandi has been ordered out of house for five days following the chaos that left Soin member of Parliament kipsengeret Koros with a cut in the face.
Luanda member of Parliament Chris Omulele who was chairing the session found Mbandi guilty of misconduct after punching Koros on the face. Speaking to the press Mbandi faulted the ruling saying the speaker unilaterally arrived at the decision without following the standing orders.
According to Mbandi, Koros was insisting voting for an absent member despite being cautioned against the move by the clerks. He claimed the member of Parliament bit his fingers making to a bleeding mess. He had his right finger covered with Elastoplast.
The law makers were voting to amendment to clause six by Kandara member of Parliament Alice Wahome. Clause six which at the center of the bill seeks to among others provide for procedure followed for registration of a coalition political party.
