Namuganza cries in parliament over Kadaga threats   

Namuganza crying before MPs

State Minister for Lands Persis Namuganza reportedly shed a tear or two while appearing before Parliament’s committee on Rules, Discipline and Privileges on Wednesday.

She asked the committee to summon the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga to explain alleged insults and incitement against her in her Bukono constituency.

According to Namuganza, Kadaga has no business with the Busoga kingdom.

The minister at some point broke down and cried before the committee members who are investigating her standoff with Kadaga.

She told the committee that Kadaga started insulting her for allegedly interfering in royal issues of the Nkono chiefdom.

She alleged that the speaker has been threatening her life for opposing the installation of an “illegitimate Nkono Chief” following the death of her father, Christopher Mutyaba.

On Tuesday, lawmakers from the Busoga Parliamentary Caucus appeared before the same committee and recommended for the censure of Namuganza as minister.

She is accused of demeaning leaders from Busoga region mainly the Speaker and the Kyabazinga, William Gabula Nadiope IV whom she allegedly described as incompetent.


Namuganza said that she does not subscribe to the Caucus which she says it is not an organ of Parliament.

The Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Jacob Oulanyah tasked the committee about two weeks ago, to investigate the rift, establish the circumstances under which the two were bickering and advise Parliament.
