State Minister for Water Ronald Kibuule has denied allegations that he smuggled a gun into the chambers of Parliament during last week’s fracas.
Kibuule who was last week suspended along with 24 other MPs over misconduct, says he is never entered with a gun to parliament and he has evidence to prove his innocence.
The minister says he was checked four times and he was found with nothing like a gun.
“I never entered with the gun, I was checked like any other member f parliament and in my case i was actually checked four times and I can account for the checks,” he states.
Kibuule further demands parliament to make the footage of that day public for the people to see if an MP can access parliament with a gun.
“It is very good to be accused when you know the facts can be known. The footage can be accessed because cameras can access the whole parliament. I demand the footage be made public for people to see if an mp can access parliament with a gun,”
Kibuule’s defence contradicts with Speaker Rebecca Kadaga’s assertion that before suspending Kibuule, she thoroughly looked into the footage and confirmed that the minister entered with the gun in House.
It was alleged that Kibuule was helped by Kampala Minister Beti Kamya to sneak the gun out before the speaker ordered for all MPs to be checked.
However, Kamya also on Wednesday denied getting involved in the saga.
