By Milton Olupot THE Parliamentary Movement Caucus chairman, Lt. James Kinobe, has asked Movement MPs to support the Government position on political parties. The Government, through the National Executive Committee (NEC) wants political party activities to be limited to national parties headquarters. Kinobe made the call on Wednesday at a caucus meeting at the Kampala International Conference Centre. Sources at the closed meeting said Kinobe urged the members to defend the NEC position when the Political Organisations Bill comes up for debate. Kinobe reportedly expressed concern that some Movement MPs often abandoned the Government during debate on crucial issues. He said some people betrayed the Movement. He said the actions of some Movement MPs did not reflect Movement support, a source said. Prime Minister Apolo Nsibambi, Basoga Nsadhu (Information) and Miria Matembe (Ethics) attended the meeting at the Kampala International Conference Centre. Kinobe was not available for comment yesterday as his mobile phone was off most of the day. The sources said Matembe cautioned Movement officials against blaming members with divergent views. “Matembe told some Movement leaders not be intolerant to criticism. She said the Movement must be tolerant if it is to remain cohesive,” the source said. Some members reportedly expressed concern that the Movement abated cliques and intrigue. MPs from west Uganda were blamed for involvement in most conflicts. Ends
