By Kezio Musoke THE defence parliamentary committee and internal affairs chairman, Lt. Gen David Tinyefunza, has warned multipartyists against using the Suppression of Terrorism Bill as an agenda for the planned consultative rally on the Movement Anniversary day. Tinyefunza told the New Vision yesterday that multiparty advocates should not hide under the guise of collecting views on the Bill because it was tentative and not yet pronounced by parliament and the committees. He said, “Lukyamuzi and his friends are targeting different interests on the NRM day. instead of hiding within the terrorism bill, they should come out openly on their agenda.” “I have not received any invitation to that rally, but even if I was, what is the rationale of Lukyamuzi calling me for that rally? If it is a question of discussion, they should come to the committee,” Tinyefunza added. Multiparty MPs and other opposition leaders are planning to hold a rally organised by the Conservative Party (CP) leadership at the clock tower on January 26. Tinyefunza, Adolf Mwesigye, the chairperson of the of the legal and parliamentary affairs committee, Edward Ssekandi, the Speaker of Parliament, and the chairman of the constitutional Review Commission, Fredrick Ssempebwa, were also invited to the rally. Lukyamuzi was quoted by the press as saying, Tinyefunza and Mwesigye were invited for the really because they chaired the parliamentary committees that are in charge of the two most important bills, the Political Organisations Bill and the Suppression of Terrorism Bill. Mwesigye said he had not received any invitation letter from the multiparty Members of Parliament. He said, “before parliament and the parliamentary committees pronounce themselves, I cannot transfer proceedings of the committee into a public rally. “If they have any views to discuss on the Political Organisations Bill, they are welcome to the parliamentary committee,” Mwesigye added.
