The National Assembly has not received a written resignation letter from the Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) member of parliament, Vipuakuje Muharukua.

This is contrary to reports that Muharukua has resigned from the party and the National Assembly.

Senior Public Relations Officer at Parliament, Sakeus Kadhikwa, told nbc News that they have not received any official resignation letter from Muharukua.

He, however, confirmed that Muharukua was absent from the session today, which does not mean a resignation.

Secretary General of PDM Immanuel Ngaringombe confirmed to nbc News that Muharukua handed in his resignation letter to his office at noon today.

Ngaringombe explained that the reasons given by Muharukua for his resignation were that he was no longer able to promote the party's activities due to his personal convictions. 

Muharukua's mobile phone was off.
