“Mr. Speaker, we have been attacked in this house by the master of violence in this house,” Koros said according to the report. “Now I can not see, I can not vote.”

Interim spokesman Christopher Omulele said he had excluded lawmaker John Mbadi from the assembly for five days as punishment for hurting Koros, Reuters reported.

“It is discouraging and dishonest for members to behave in this way,” Omulele told his colleagues.
