Kadaga blocks Zaake torture debate

Speaker Kadaga

The Minister of Internal Affairs Hon Obiga Kania has asked plenary not to debate his statement on the arrest and brutal torture of Mityana Municipality MP Hon. Zaake Francisby Security operatives.

The debate was supposed to touch specific actions taken by government against the perpetrators since the matter is before Court.

The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga Tuesday granted Kania’s request not to debate the statement on grounds of sub-judis rule.



The Speaker also directed the Minister of Lands to appear before plenary to present a statement on the measures put in place by Government to ensure that the construction of buildings in the country are up to standard.

This follows the collapse of a building in Kansanga.

Hon. Ssemujju Nganda raised concern over the quality of food being distributed by Government as relief.

He presented a sample of the beans and posho that were distributed yesterday saying that the food is not fit for human consumption.

Hon. Jacqueline Amongin has challenged the claim by Nganda that the relief food by Government is of poor quality.

She says that Hon. Ssemujju and other members are out of order by undermining the efforts by Government.

She says that Ugandans who have received the food are grateful.

The Speaker has asked the Minister of Justice, Attorney General and the chair to the Legal Committee at Parliament to fast track the harmonization of positions on the Administration of the Judiciary Bill before the end of the 4th Session.

The Speaker has asked Office of the Prime Minister to come into the aid of University and College students who stranded in hostels following the COVID19UG directives.

She says that she has received complaints that the students don’t food and the landlords are soon evicting them.
