Honorable Abiriga representing Arua municipality country tussled it out with Honorable Atiku Bernard of Ayivu County.

Abiriga  an NRM die hard and one of the principal movers of the controversial age limit Bill was beaten.

Atiku belongs to the opposition FDC and does not support the amendment of Art 102 (b) to allow President Museveni to stand after clocking 75 years.

The battle ensued outside parliament after a protracted argument between the members of parliament inside  parliament which was carried outside the building.

The whisper eye media team established that Hon Abiriga after being floored down was helped with a glass of water to revive his lost energy.

This is the second time a member of parliament supporting the amendment of the constitution has been publically and physically attacked over the age limit issue.
