Street MPs
State minister for primary health care returned fire to opposition MPs who ‘pushed him against the wall’ to update them on what his ministry is doing about the meningitis outbreak in West Nile. Pressed further by MPs over what they termed as unsatisfying explanations. Emmanuel Otaala retorted: “Madam Speaker my honourable colleagues on the opposition have been on the streets since they boycotted Parliament. Where could I have found them to up date them?”

Isolated Bakka
Bakka Musujja, the director for finance at KCC, seems not to be aware of what is going on in the council. While testifying before the parliamentary committee on local government over KCC’s illegal dealings with city businessman Hassan Basajjabalaba, Musujja gave glaring evidence pinning KCC which prompted MP Patrick Ochieng to wonder: “The way you are testifying proves to me that you have been isolated from the KCC ‘eating’ group. Are you safe?” to which Musujja responded: “I am safe.”

Malinga’s truth
“I used to spray DDT on my mother’s fields when I was young. We called it dodonya. So, those who say it causes impotence should know what a vibrant sex life I have currently. I have many children and if I had not got a vasectomy, I do not know how many more I would be having now,” said Stephen Malinga, the Minister of Health at Hotel Africana recently.

Lukwago ignored
Having been defeated in the committee on legal and parliamentary affairs, Kampala central MP Erias Lukwago wanted the Attorney General, Dr. Khiddu Makubuya to apologize to him. His colleagues voted against his move and a furious Lukwago marched out. Committee Chairperson Peter Nyombi, told Journalists: “Whatever he tells you outside there, is not part of the committee proceedings.”
