Forum for Democratic Change vice chairperson Eastern region Proscovia Salaamu Musumba has advised Speaker Rebecca Kadaga to revise her decision on bending laws in Parliament.
Musumba, while appearing on KFM, a local radio station on Friday, said Kadaga has gone too far to undermine the Leader of Opposition’s decisions and the laws that govern the Parliament’s Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (Cosase).
“Kadaga should rethink what she is doing, because she is doing it wrongly. Let her give way for rules to work,” said Musumba.
On Thursday Kadaga insisted on extending the tenure of the chairmanship of Bugweri County Member of Parliament Abdu Katuntu.
“We can’t let the current committee leave without finishing the BOU probe at a crucial stage like this, it will be unfair to change them,” said Kadaga.
Musumba said that Kadaga is acting the way she is because she wants to frustrate FDC leadership in Parliament.
“If National Resistance Movement was the one in charge of Cosase would Kadaga have insisted on extending terms? She is doing this to despise leaders of other parties,” said Musumba.
FDC spokesperson Ibrahim Semujju Nganda also said that the Kadaga is mistaken on insisting on Katuntu’s leadership. However, he advised Katuntu to stand up for his reputation in the fight over Cosase leadership.
“I would advise Katuntu not let his name be soiled in this ongoing argument because he knows the truth,” said Semujju.
Katuntu was supposed to handover office on 13th this month. However, the Speaker asked his committee to first finish the Bank of Uganda probe.
