Members of Parliament start move to oust Namuganza
By: AFAYO SHADRACH BETHEL
Members of Parliament have started what they have described as an irreversible move to censure the embattled State minister for Housing Persis Namuganza.
On December 8, the Agago North Member of Parliament, Mr Amos Okot, notified the Clerk to Parliament of his intention to move the motion to censure Ms Namuganza over misconduct, which he followed with the actual motion on December 9.
In a motion dated December 9, moved by Okot, and seconded by the Ntungamo Municipality MP, Yona Musinguzi the legislators lined up a litany of accusations against the minister, which form the basis for their resolve to kick her out of the Cabinet.
The duo say they are concerned that after Parliament had found the minister culpable of abuse of office in allocating the Naguru-Nakawa land to investors, Ms Namuganza made statements about Parliament in the mainstream media and on social media attacking the operations of Parliament, questioning the powers of Parliament, the integrity of the presiding officers of Parliament and imputing improper motive to Parliament and its presiding officers.
