Babu stated he was informed that the voting of the bill would take place next week, but Speaker Moses Wetang’ula changed his mind unexpectedly.

“While at my lawyer’s office, that is when I realised that the Speaker changed and made another ruling that voting was to take place today. So many members were depending on the fact that voting would take place after Tuesday next week and that explains why so many members from Azimio missed,” he said.
