Amazingly, the Constitution says Parliament has power to make laws on any matter for the peace, order, development and good governance of Uganda.
Is it that the Eighth Parliament is another rubber stamp of the executive?
This is just the first year of the eighth parliament. Surely, the citizens of Uganda deserve better than this!
