Parliament is expected today 15th to discuss the issue of the leadership of the committee of Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprise as the FDC party insist that Bugweri county MP Abdul katuntu should hand over office to Kawempe south MP Mubarak Munyagwa after his term expired on Sunday.

The opposition leader in parliament Betty Aol Ochan was supposed to meet the speaker Kadaga last evening over the same matter but the speaker was out of office.

FDC spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda told journalists at the party headquarters last week that he had written to Kadaga, reminding her over Katuntu’s hand over this week.

Munyagwa and Moses Kasibante who was appointed vice chairperson say that they are ready to take over the leadership and complete the probe into the investigations of the closure of the 7 commercial banks.

Before parliament went for Christmas recess, speaker Kadaga told mps that she had requested the leadership of the opposition in parliament to allow Katuntu work up to 20th of this month since the matter had reached a critical stage of investigations and changing the leadership will jeopardize conclusion of the inquiry.
