The Deputy Speaker Thomas Tayebwa has cautioned legislators against character assassination, violation of rules of the House and urged them to legislate with decorum and dignity for each other.

To avoid disruptions and ensure smooth operations in the House, the Deputy Speaker issued new changes and cited two very critical rules that must be followed by all members at all times and cautioned legislators against misconduct and attacking each other.

“It is out of order to use offensive , abusive, insulting, blasphemous or unbecoming words or to impute improper motives to a member or to make personal allusions,” the Deputy Speaker told members as he read out the rules of procedure verbatim.

“I know as colleagues you have a duty to deliver to your constituency but as the custodian of the rules, I have a duty to protect the dignity of this house and I will ensure that is done but I request you honorable colleagues that indeed we accommodate each other because it’s in parliament where we can accommodate each other. I will give you time to speak. I will give as long as your content is in line with the rules.”

He added: “I will give you time to bring your issues here because it’s provided for but I will request you to accommodate each other. The day you stop accommodating each other as a house, we shall have lost it. I want to thank you colleagues.”

Under 83, the Deputy Speaker announced that during a sitting (a) a member shall enter or leave the house with a decorum. (b) A member shall not cross the flow of the house or move around unnecessarily. (c) While a member is speaking, all other members shall be silent or make unseemly interruptions. (d) When a member has finished his or her observation, he or she shall resume his or her seat. (e) A maiden speech shall not be interrupted. (f) A member shall not without the consent of the speaker bring into the house anything other than papers, books or other documents which are directly connected with the business of the house. (g) A member shall not bring in to the house any camera, arms or weapon, tape recorder, transistor radio and (h) A member shall not clap in the house.

Under Rule 83 (2), the Deputy Speaker informed members that notwithstanding paragraph (g), a member may bring in specific electronic devices that can not disrupt the preceding of the house and also the security test of parliament.

New guidelines

In his communication from the chair, Mr Tayebwa as the custodian of the House rules of procedure , also banned impromptu reaction to the Speaker’s communication to the chair and asked the lawmakers to adhere to the official dressing code.

“I want us to enforce the rules properly including dressing code. So dressing code which is clearly provided for under rule 82 of our rules of procedure will be because under African wear is where we have had an abuse. I will no longer allow shirts in the house and because this is a place of dignity and suits,” the Deputy Speaker said.

“I want us to apply properly what is defined as African shirts some are bought in Europe, they are not even African and this rule is also applying to committees. It has been brought to my attention that members walk in committees in jeans in sneakers in converse in flats, some are about to enter in shorts and also for the women, kindly try to be as decent as possible.”

He added: “With effect from today [October 18 2023] and onwards, if a member for example has an injury, and he or she approaches the speaker in time, and he or she explains him or herself, we can have an exception and we understand the member is injured he cannot put on the suit.”

In order to bring order to the House, the Deputy Speaker also banned lawmakers approaching the speaker’s chair during plenary sessions. This is intended to avoid disrupting Speaker’s attention in the House.

“I want to repeat this. No more walking over to the speaker except for three people. Number one, the leader of government business and also it doesn’t mean that we do it all the time, the leader of government business, the leader of opposition and the government chief whip and any other person whom the speaker, presiding officer can invite for consultation but you will be approaching the chair through chits,” the Deputy Speaker Tayebwa ruled.

He added: “I have seen flexibility is never rewarded and you have proved that to me from all sides. Of course I will remain steadfast and I can assure you of this am a very patient character and I will continue being patient…. I want us to apply the rules here the way they are….the rules I will be applying are rules which honorable colleagues you make and I must implement including when I make a ruling it will be final. If you want to challenge my ruling, the rules give you a leeway of challenging it.”

Terror attacks

Meanwhile the House observed a moment of silence in memory of the two tourists and a Ugandan guide who were killed by suspected ADF rebels in Queen Elizabeth on Tuesday evening. The victims and their guide according to Deputy Speaker, were attacked in Kasese around Katwe. The Deputy Speaker described the tragedy as “a very sad moment especially for the country’s tourism sector which was recovering after being hit so much by COVID-19.”

“People want to come and see the marvel of our beauty as a country so all of a sudden this tragedy happened. I know it will affect the tourism sector but government indeed we need to come up and assure our people on the safety of our visitors in the country and we shall give all the necessary support as a house and we do hope that indeed with this incident we don’t as a country lose focus and declare even ourselves as if we are extremely insecure,” Mr Tayebwa told parliament.

The “Crank Dat” rapper took to his IG story, boldly declaring, “I’m ready to have another kid. Hit the DM if you’re interested.” This unfiltered revelation has left fans and followers both astonished and entertained, as Soulja Boy continues to defy norms by making his personal life a public spectacle.

Soulja Boy’s direct approach to the possibility of fatherhood again has triggered diverse reactions on social media, ranging from excitement to disbelief.

The rapper, already a father to a daughter, has previously made surprising announcements, but this move has raised questions about the motives behind such a public declaration.

Social media has been flooded with memes, jokes, and speculations about potential candidates stepping up to join him on this unconventional journey to parenthood.

While some criticize the rapper’s approach, labeling it as “UNHINGED behavior,” others anticipate curious individuals reaching out to his DMs in pursuit of being the next baby mama. The unconventional nature of Soulja Boy’s announcement has the internet buzzing with speculation on whether he is truly on a quest for love or simply stirring up attention.

As the online community awaits updates on this intriguing development, one thing is certain: Soulja Boy has once again captured the attention of fans and critics alike. Whether this leads to a new addition to his family or becomes a chapter in the rapper’s social media history remains uncertain. Until then, the world watches as Soulja Boy embarks on his quest to find the perfect contender for expanding his family. Share your thoughts on this unexpected revelation in the comments below!

Boosie Badazz is addressing the criticism he received after sharing dating advice with his daughter’s boyfriend. During an Instagram Live session over the weekend, the Baton Rouge rapper told 21-year-old Tarlaysia Hatch’s boyfriend, “You can cheat on her, but don’t beat on her.” This advice sparked controversy, prompting Boosie to defend his parenting skills on Instagram on Monday (December 4).

Boosie began his response by addressing the negative comments and emphasizing that he won’t interfere in his daughter’s relationships unless there’s physical abuse involved. He challenged those criticizing him, stating, “A lot of y’all commenting – y’all ain’t got no dad. Y’all ain’t gon’ call y’all dad and tell him y’all got a boyfriend because y’all don’t even care what y’all daddy say.”

The rapper continued, highlighting the strong bond he shares with his daughter, stating, “Me and my daughter…me and Pretty Black is thick as thieves. I talk to her about anything, she talks to me about anything.” Boosie defended his parenting, asserting that he is a good father and emphasized that he prioritizes being a father above all else.

In the Instagram caption, Boosie further defended his parenting skills, challenging others to compare him to their fathers. He asserted that he is a good father who has maintained positive relationships with his children, despite having multiple baby mothers.

Contrastingly, Boosie’s relationship with his daughter Toriana Hatch took a sour turn over the summer, with accusations of threats and disinheritance. The feud stemmed from Boosie’s song “Ungrateful,” in which he dissed Toriana and her mother, Rachel Wagner, among others. The subsequent bitterness between them led Toriana to accuse Boosie of threatening her and removing her from his will.

This public dispute unfolded after Boosie admitted to threatening his daughter due to her behavior, claiming she was “embarrassing the family” by engaging in inappropriate activities.

Alicia Keys’ musical, “Hell’s Kitchen,” based on her life, is set to make its Broadway debut in the spring. Currently playing at the Public Theater until January 14, the musical will transfer to the Shubert Theater on Broadway starting March 28, with an opening night scheduled for April 20.

In a statement, Alicia expressed, “Good things take time, and for 13 years, I’ve been dreaming, developing, and finding inspiration for a musical based on my experience growing up in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC. Hell’s Kitchen is inspired by my life, but it’s not a biographical story. It’s a story about family relationships and identity: Who are we? Who do we want to be? Who are we becoming?”

She continued, “The score features new songs that I’m really excited to get out into the world alongside many of my album releases that you know but you’ve never heard like this – rearranged and reinterpreted.”

The musical is scored by the award-winning singer, and the book is written by Kristoffer Diaz. The Broadway cast has not yet been announced.

In addition to her success in the arts, Alicia Keys has had a significant year in business. She recently filed a trademark to launch a new tea brand, “Alicia Teas,” inspired by a gift from her husband, Swizz Beatz. Swizz had gifted her a brand of tea bags in 2020, declaring that the brand would one day be sold in Starbucks locations globally.

The new tea brand, “Alicia Teas,” is expected to make its debut, although the exact launch date is currently unclear.

In September, Alicia reciprocated the thoughtful gesture by taking Swizz on a birthday trip to France to celebrate his 45th birthday. The celebration included family and friends, including Pharrell, at a chateau in the Cognac region, featuring a dinner with fresh fish, sushi, and flowing red wine.

“The love for my 45 made me feel ultra alive! Thank you everyone for the love and blessings!!!! The Biggest thank you to my amazing thoughtful wife for setting up this 1 of 1 night @aliciakeys Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!” Swizz expressed in the caption of his Instagram video.

Styles P Reveals DMX Targeted Ja Rule In Classic Track “We Don’t Give A” – The Hoima Post –

Styles P has unveiled that DMX had a specific target in mind when recording the classic track “We Don’t Give A.” During a visit to The Breakfast Club on Tuesday (December 5), the LOX MC disclosed that Ja Rule was the subject of Dark Man X’s lyrical crosshairs.

“The song was about Ja,” Styles told Charlamagne Tha God. “You didn’t know that? X and Ja having beef. They were dogs.”

Continuing to shed light on the matter, Styles added, “He’s in it, I’m in it with him. Y’all had to know that! Listen to the lyrics!”

Although The Breakfast Club hosts expressed surprise at the revelation of DMX and Ja Rule’s beef, there were indications of their falling out as early as 2002. The dispute stemmed from DMX’s belief that Ja Rule was imitating his style.

“Everybody in here don’t want me to do it – they whining – but I’m gonna do it,” DMX said to HipHopDX at the time.

When questioned about their similar styles, DMX asserted, “It’s not like I’m the only one thinking about this. N-ggas ask me about this shit every day. So what I’m gonna do? Sit here and do nothing about this shit? That ain’t right. I could see if the n-gga talked like that regularly. How I talk is how I rap.”

According to DMX, Ja Rule’s attitude changed with his success, and DMX wasn’t pleased with it.

“We up in the club in LA, one night, he got his people, I got my people,” DMX explained. “We at opposite sides of the club. Me, out of respect – that’s my n-gga – take two people with me to get through the crowd. I take a bottle of liquor over there and have a couple of drinks with my n-gga, cause that’s how I am. Two weeks later we happened to be in the same club. Same circumstances. Some kid walks over to me and says ‘Ja says he is over there.’ I’m like ‘Aight, is he gonna come over?’ ‘Nah, he said come over there.’ Get the fuck out of here man, I already extended my hand once. Give me the same courtesy. You can’t do the same as me? I sent him right back over there. You’d think Ja would come over here after all that. Nothin!’ I’m like, “fuck you.””
