CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Don’t Come To Parliament, Stay Home: Kadaga Bitter After 6 MPs Who Travelled From Dubai Defy President M7’s Directives…

Published

The Speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga is bitter with 6 Members of Parliament (MPs) who defied the presidential directive on coronavirus, refused to be quarantined and wanted to access parliament.

While opening plenary today, the Speaker said, “I start the House debate this afternoon with a directive that the following MPs who were recently in Dubai, no longer access Parliament. The MPs include Hon. Sekitoleko Kafero; Hon. Kumama Nsamba; Hon. Ssempala Kigozi; Hon. Lydia Mirembe; Hon. Waluswaka James and Hon. Namujju Cissy. This also includes the two staff Natukunda Adrine and Agatha Akankunda who traveled with the MPs. If they are in the House, they have violated the guidelines issued by the President. I’m instructing the Sergeant-At-Arms to ensure compliance.”

She added, “any other Members who have traveled recently should also not come to the precincts of Parliament. Any person who has COVID-19 like symptoms should be isolated immediately. In the same vein, I ask Security to minimize body contact when searching people.”

The Speaker said that despite the current Coronavirus situation, Parliament is still expected to do budget work.

“To minimize physical interaction, staff assigned to committees should ensure the issues generated are shared with MDAs electronically. MDAs should also share responses electronically. Where necessary, there will only be one meeting with four people from the MDAs. Staffing levels should also be reduced immediately. Heads of departments should determine, on a rotational basis, staff who should remain on duty,” she said.

The speaker said that parliament has also assigned four Members of the Committee of Health to the national task force to exercise oversight on the work of the Ministry of Health on the COVID-19 epidemic.

President Museveni’s son Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba who also doubles as his senior adviser on Special Operations has given him advice never to fight with his former bush war colleague, Rwandan President Paul Kagame.

In a post on his twitter page, Muhoozi told his boss that, “Brothers/Comrades and Revolutionaries can quarrel but they should never fight. We have come from very far. I wish His Excellency General Kagame and the people of Rwanda a solemn and respectful kwibuka.”

Muhoozi was wishing Rwandan president Paul Kagame and the people of Rwanda a respectful Kwibuka. Kwibuka means ‘to remember’ and describes the annual commemoration of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

This year marks the 26th commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. Kwibuka26 provides an important opportunity to Remember and honour the over one million victims of the genocide, preserve its evidence and educate Rwandans about its history as well as the lessons that Rwanda has learned.

Lt. Col. Nakalema Directs Arrest of Asian Tycoon Abid Alam Over Rape, Torture Allegation In Mubende…

Published

on

The State House Anti- corruption unit boss Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema has directed the Uganda Police Force to summon Indian Investor Abid Alam to Kasanda police station to record a statement on allegations of torture and rape.

According to credible sources at the Anti-corruption unit, Nakalema today morning talked to Maj. General Sabiiti Muzeeyi and asked him to intervene and assist a one Arthur Mugyenyi who accuses Alam’s workers of torturing his family members and raping his wife in presence of their children.

Sources further revealed that Mugyenyi with the help of their area Member of Parliament Simeo Nsubuga petitioned Nakalema’s anti-corruption unit claiming that they were not helped by the area police when Alam’s goons terrorised them. Last week, Nsubuga said that Alam sent 60 workers to Mugyenyi’s home with machetes and threatened to kill Mugyenyi and his family members.

He said Alam’s workers also cut down Mugyenyi’s banana plantation, destroyed his two houses, and took his 200 cows and 500 goats in a bid to evict him from his land.

Efforts to speak to Alam were futile since his known phone numbers were off.

Ugandans and Africans who have been plying their trade in China have cried to their governments to get them out of China.

According to a video from one of the Ugandans who is locked down in china, that was shared by Kampala Central legislator Mohammad Nsereko, they are being ejected from houses, denied access to health care and ejected from public transport and already 4 of their colleagues have died under unclear circumstances.

“The Chinese are discriminating us, when we enter their busses they all run out of the bus. These people are showing us their true colours, we are asking government to help. The Chinese should allow us to go home instead of forcefully arresting us and testing us,” he said.

He added, “We are being tortured, i call upon government to help us leave this country. Already four of our colleagues are dead. Let them allow us to go home. The landlords are chasing us from their houses and asking for a lot of money in rent yet we are not working. Everywhere we go we are being chased, we are now in hiding.”

Nsereko called upon government to immediately intervene and stop this alleged discrimination and inhuman treatment.

“I have received disturbing reports and videos of Ugandans and Africans in China being treated in a degrading manner. I have been informed that some have been ejected from houses, others denied access to health care and ejected from public transport. This is very unfortunate; we call upon the Ugandan government to intervene immediately in this matter.”
