Parliament Committees are like torture chambers, says Minister Namuganza
By Rosette Nandutu,
The State Minister for Housing, Ms Persis Namuganza, has cried out to President Museveni over what she calls “a chamber of torture” in reference to parliamentary committees.
Ms Namuganzi castigated some committees for subjecting investors, witnesses and VIPs to embarrassment and ‘torture’ whenever they appear for discussions and hearings.
The minister said that some investors had complained of harassment while appearing before committees adding that this is disgrace because these are people who are interested in improving our economy.
Her comments come in the wake of members on the Lands parliamentary committee dismissing her submission that the President asked her to submit a request for land to be allocated to some investors to build a hospital, shopping arcade and condominium at the Naguru land.
