The Member of Parliament for Bukimbiri county in Kisoro district Eddie Kwizera has this morning collapsed as parliament met to elect members of the East African Legislative Assembly.
MPs are currently listening to EALA contestants’ campaigns before voting later in the afternoon.
Kwizera was immediately carried away by colleagues who first untied his tie. The Deputy Speaker who is chairing the house asked the Sergeant at arms to ensure that the MP is attended to quickly as the house that is full to capacity resumed.
By the time of filing this story, Kwizera’s ailment had not been established.
