“We don’t have six representatives from NRM, we have all the nine from NRM. Politics is about greed. I was in the gallery, but we couldn’t hear the candidates articulate points. The legislators were just shouting.”
Batte says he is starting to have a certain kind of respect towards NRM people. All this is because of what he calls the lack of shame from them.
“I am beginning to have some respect for the NRM people. This respect is born out of them having no shame. They don’t hide. There are those in the other parties who’ll hide.”
Chaos headlined the Parliament yesterday as legislators voted for EALA members. It even got worse when MP Odria walked in with pre-ticked ballot papers.
The house was on fire and for some good time business stood still. Former NBS Journalist, Joseph Sabiiti says this was so unbecoming of the legislators because it was the Speaker that later apologized on their behalf to the police officer who was assaulted in the process.
“For me, the downside of the EALA process was that at the end of the day, the Speaker had to meet a police officer assaulted to offer an apology on behalf of Parliament. She had to assure him that the leadership of Parliament doesn’t condone the acts you saw on the video that circulated.”
