There was a near punch up in parliament Wednesday when UPND Choma member of Parliament Cornelius Mweetwa aimed at His Katuba Counterpart Jonas Shakafuswa after he was heard shouting Yaaaaaaaaa” and raising a PF symbol while seating third from Choma law maker.
Mr Mweetwa got upset after because the “UPND suffered to bring Mr Shakafuswa to parliament.”
Mr Mweetwa who later rose on a point of order seeking the Speaker’s ruling on Mr Shakafuswas’ raising of a PF symbol.
“Mr Speaker I raise on a point of order seeing your serious ruling, going by the rules of the house is it in order for Hon Shakafuswa to raise a PF symbol in this house after we suffered for him as a party to win a by election, Mr Speaker this is political stupidity,” said the visibly upset law maker.
When Mr Shakafuswa tried to hold calm Mr Mweetwa down he yanked his hand away from the reach of his colleague as the Choma parliamentarian would not have none of it and threatened to beat up his counterpart.
Mr Mweetwa later walked out the house as he refused an order from the speaker who had ordered him to sit down and end the confrontation.
