The Leader of Opposition in Parliament Hon Mathias Mpuuga has chaired a cabinet meeting this morning in preparation for the week’s Parliamentary business.
The enthusiasm is high, all the Ministers of the Alternative Government are committed to the service of the people, he said.
“If PM Roninah Nabbanja has failed to deliver her austerity package to the intended real beneficiaries, she shdn’t think of breaking our long held tradition of helping those in need. She can’t stop anyone. Our leaders should adhere to the COVID19 SOPs,” he said earlier.
“She can’t stop anyone from giving food to those in need. If her promised Shs. 100,000 austerity package has failed to reach the real intended beneficiaries, she shouldn’t make any attempts at stopping leaders and other members of our communities from reaching out to those in need – of course with strict adherence to the Ministry of Health guidelines on curbing the spread of COVID19.”
Before, Mpuuga inspected ongoing road works in Masaka City.
A number of roads are going to be upgraded to tarmac this year.
He commended Mayor Namayanja Florence for her efforts in trying to save public spaces from being taken over by the usual suspects.
Some took advantage of the laxity of the leadership of the former Masaka Municipal Council and turned public roads into their personal property.
“Now a senior UPDF officer is degrading a wetland with impunity shockingly with UNRA’s clearance to remove road guards and a license from the Masaka City Town Clerk,” he said.
The wetland in question feeds into River Nabajjuzi, a major water source in the city.
“We’ll not allow this to go on.”
