Amidst the corruption storm at parliament which has been brought to light by the Uganda Parliament Exhibition, the clerk to parliament has recalled legislators to resume sittings tomorrow 15th March 2024.

The recalling of members of parliament back to the house comes at a time when parliamentary leadership under the leadership of speaker Anita Among is under fire over corruption which has come to light over leaked documents online which have shown how the speaker spends billions on corporate social responsibility.


What has caused a mix of reactions as parliament is under scrutiny is the millions of shillings that junior parliamentary staff receive on behalf Speaker Anita Among in the name of doing for her corporate social responsibility (CSR). Chris Obore the parliament’s director of communications has admitted to this saying the always do this because the speaker is ever busy and delegates other errands to her junior staff.

Early this week, the shadow cabinet led by the Leader of Opposition Joel Ssenyonyi urged the speaker of parliament to come out and say something about the accusations leveled against her. They also urged the speaker to recall the house from recess such that these issues are addressed.

Their counterparts from NRM [the rebel MPS] Barnabas Tinkasimire and Theodre Ssekikubo also urged the speaker to recall the house from recess to return and discuss pertinent issues at hand as the country is seeing MPs as thieves.

“We can’t now walk with our heads high on the streets of Kampala, we smuggle ourselves and bold out. It isn’t now the best time to be identified as MPs. We are all bundled up, nobody is giving answers, should we all go by rollcall, not me, not me? We are all being castigated and we look bad in the eyes of the public,” said Theodore Ssekikuubo Lwemiyaga County.
