32 of the 44 EALA members, sponsored the motion for suspension of Zziwa, which is more the required two-thirds.
But Zziwa protested the suspension saying it was illegal. "I do not accept what was done. It was outside the law," Zziwa said last week.

Contacted again yesterday, Zziwa said, "I am thinking of legal redress on the matter. I am going to consult different Attorney Generals on the matter and then seek legal redress," she commented.

Meanwhile the East African Community Heads of State summit which had been scheduled to take place yesterday in Nairobi was postponed to next year.

Edith Mwanje, the Permanent secretary ministry of East Africa Community Affairs said the summit was postponed because the Tanzanian Head of State Jakaya Kikwete was unwell. "Kenya is supposed to hand over the chairmanship to Tanzania. But since the Head of state was not around, the secretariat decided to postpone the summit to another date most probably early next year," Mwanje said.

The summit was scheduled to consider among others; Annual Report of the Council of Ministers for the period December 2013 to November 2014, report of selected priority matters.

Other issues on the agenda were negotiations for the Admission of the Republic of South Sudan into the EAC, verification of the application of Somalia to join the Community, initiation of a Constitution-making process and a road map for the EAC Political Federation and progress towards the establishment of a one area telephone network for East Africa.
