The member of parliament for Bukimbiri county, Kisoro district Eddie Kwizera collapsed today as parliament met to elect members of the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA).
The MPs were listening to EALA contestants' campaigns before casting their ballots later in the afternoon. Kwizera was immediately carried away by colleagues who first untied his tie.
The deputy speaker Thomas Tayebwa who is chairing the house, asked the seargeant at arms to ensure that the MP is attended to quickly before the house which was full to capacity resumed.
By the time of filing this story, Kwizera's ailment had not been established.
