Deputy speaker Jacob Oulanyah summons MP Judith Nabakooba and her deputy for lying about Kasese report
Yesterday the Vice-chairperson of the defence and internal affairs committee Kezekiah Mbogo told Parliament that her committee's report on the Kasese killings was ready. However, when the time came for it to be presented, it was nowhere to be seen.

The Speaker of Parliament has today summoned the Chairperson o the committee of Defence Judith Nabakoooba and her Deputy Kezekiah Mbogo for apparently lying to the house that the Kasese report is ready.This prompted some of the MP's to request that perhaps the MP's should be taken to the disciplinary committee.

 

Some MPs also claimed they doubted the Defence and internal affairs committee's  claims that the report on Kasese killings was ready.

At least 116 people were killed and scores injured on 27th November 2016 after a combined force of UPDF soldiers and the police raided the Rwenzururu King's palace near Kasese town to flush out what they said were lawless elements hellbent on overthrowing the government. 

In the same session, Kiira Municipality MP Ibrahim Semujju tabled his motion that would see the government give vehicles to political leaders, public and civil servants on hire purchase or on loan.

 

Ssemujju added that the issue is serious and that if adopted it save the country a lot of money 

It was seconded by the Ndorwa East MP Wilfred Niwagaba.

However, the Minister for Public Service Wilson Muruli Mukasa requested for the debate to be deferred to another day since they weren't acquitted with the matters
