- Newly elected MP Moses Attan attended his swearing-in ceremony with his two wives, not knowing the awaiting drama
- The two women tussled to stand next to him as he was being sworn in on live TV
- Netizens found the altercation hilarious, with some of them dishing out advice to the legislator and his wives
The embarrassing moment when a polygamous politicians’ two wives fought as he was being sworn in as newly elected MP was captured on camera.
The incident happened in Uganda during the swearing in of members of the 11th parliament on May 19.
Footage taken during the ceremony showed the newly elected MP, Attan Okia Moses, arriving with his two wives in tow.
They proceeded to sanitise their hands as COVID-19 precaution measures stipulate before heading to the podium.
With the Bible in one hand, the Soroti Municipality legislator was ready to take the oath of office moments before drama ensued.
A video of the altercation showed the two women jostling to stand next to him. One of Attan's wives was standing next to him when the other came and insisted on taking her place.
Amid the altercation, the MP was spotted looking down, perhaps because he felt embarrassed.
Netizens reacted to the video urging Attan to pacify his two wives. Others suggested the women get along. Here are some of the reactions:
"I can't get tired of watching this video. Laughter is killing me."
"If you allow yourself to be wife number two, you should always respect your number. Don't fight, be calm in all situations because that's what you chose."
"I can't stop laughing, banange. I have never seen anything like this."
"You can't put your house in order. How will you rule over Uganda?"
"Now I know who will be holding the MP’s ATM card."
"Wonders shall never cease."
