Deputy Speaker Adjourns House Due To Absence Of Minsters

Bethel | 95timefm


Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Thomas Tayebwa yesterday prematurely adjourned the House sitting after the front bench meant for Cabinet ministers was empty.

Only three of the 81 ministers were present in the House, forcing Mr Maurice Kibalya, the Bugabula South Member of Parliament to raise a procedural matter on the absence of ministers.

Ms Cecilia Ogwal, the Dokolo Woman Member of Parliament rose to support Mr Kibalya and wondered where the ministers were. She noted that when Mr Tayebwa was still the Government Chief Whip, he mobilised the Members of Parliament to support the expansion of the Cabinet for effective service delivery.

The Prime Minister, Ms Robinah Nabbanja, attempted to explain the absence of the ministers, but her explanation was rejected by the House.
