Looks like Members of Parliament from the Mulembe Nation, especially those affiliated with the Orange Democratic Movement have been played when it comes to key committees within parliament.
From the list that has been released, senior Members of Parliament who seem to have sacrificed a lot for the party have been given the membership of house committees that even the very mentioning of them sounds like a big joke.
