Following the attack, the house became chaotic when the two men; Dafaala Ssenjako and Mutaasa Kafero started punching the MPs indiscriminately including Nwoya MP, Simon Oyet and state minister for Sports, Hamson Obua who fought back.
Ssenjako and Kafeero who were donning red tops are suspected to be linked to red top brigade which is opposed to President Museveni’s leadership. They entered parliament distributing documents titled "A letter to Africa and Uganda, stop cropping out citizens." They also claimed corruption that is eating up the country starts from parliament.
For a moment, the Internal Affairs minister Obiga Kania ordered that no one else be allowed to enter parliament until after 5 pm. Speaker of Rebecca Kadaga condemned the attack on MPs and warned that the attackers are going to be dealt with "severely".
