Start censuring the ministers who have failed on their duties – Hon. Ssekikubo

The Member of Parliament for Rwemiyaga county Theodore Ssekikubo asks parliament  to start the process of censuring the ministers who have failed on their duties.

This is after minister for Internal affairs Jeje Odong and his junior minister Kania Obiga failed to show up in the Parliament Defence Committee as officials from the police force had been invited to explain a number of issues in line with of expenditure of the budget as passed by parliament, violence in the country and general security in the country.

The MPs sitting on this committee said they could not go ahead to interface with the officials from police who are under the internal affairs ministry when their political heads had not appeared despite them being notified and invited for this same meeting.

The committee chairperson Doreen Amule had first insisted the meeting goes on considering the  fact that the witnesses had appeared but she was challenged by a number of MPs including Theodore Ssekikubo, Mubaraka Munyagwa, Donozio kahonda and Nakaseke woman MP Sarah Najjuma  going against the parliament rules of procedures.

Sekikubo explains that its becoming fond of several ministers to follow short of their duties as on several occasions fail to show up in parliament to answer particular issues hence it’s high time such ministers be censured.
