Speaker Rebecca Kadaga visited the home of Mityana MP Hon Zaake Francis Butebi who was recently hospitalised after being punched by junior works minister, Gen Katumba Wamala.

Zaake was discharged from Lubaga hospital to continue treatment at home.

“Rt. Hon Speaker of parliament checking on me at my residence where am being treated from and assuring me about my further review of foreign treatment,” Zaake said while sharing pictures of Kadaga’s visit.

In her turn, Kadaga wrote: “Quick recovery my foot solider.”

She also visited the home of Rubaga North MP Moses Kasibante who together with Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi and Makindye West MP Allan Ssewanyana, have been target of grenade attacks.


The trio were attacked for opposing the lifting the age limit in the Constitution. Kadaga promised to ensure that the security of Members of Parliament is beefed up.

“Thank you my Foot solider…… for welcoming me warmly,” Kadaga said while posing with Kasibante’s family.

In his turn, Kasibante wrote: “Speaker Rt Hon Kadaga found the time to make an impromptu visit at my home in Kosovo. Kind of got surprised at the visit, but she told family she had ‘felt bad’ at the news of the grenade attacks on me! There she is, girls were the first to plead ‘togikwatako’!”

Earlier, Kadaga had appealed to Ugandans living in the United Arab Emirates to bring their savings back home and invest, while officiating at the opening of the first Uganda convention in Dubai, United Arab Emirates which was organised by a private initiative of Ugandans living in UAE and was held at Hyatt regency hotel in Dubai deira.

“Uganda is safe, stable for business and investment. I call upon all to stop donating billion on Arab governments but rather save your money and bring it back home,” she said.

The convention was attended by MPs, members of the Indian. Community and many other Arab investors who were also encouraged to come invest in Uganda.
