Pastor Ruth Tuma
BUSHENYI woman MP Mary Karoro knows that prayer works. She also knows that given the numerous problems, her fellow MPs on the presidential affairs committee also need prayers to see them through.

BUSHENYI woman MP Mary Karoro knows that prayer works. She also knows that given the numerous problems, her fellow MPs on the presidential affairs committee also need prayers to see them through.

While opening the committee meeting she asked MP Ruth Tuma to lead the committee in prayer because of the problem of debts. “we need prayers because we have many debts. Let pastor Tuma take us through that,” she said sending MPs into
hearty laughter.

Muhinda vs press

State House Comptroller Richard Muhinda seems not to know the access to information Bill. He thinks that every time the press gets information, they must have stolen it and wonders how the press accessed state house documents. “Something must be done to these people from stealing our documents.
This is unethical. They stole the president’s letter and published it word per word even before it reached the intended people,” he complained to the MPs. Muhinda where were you when the press stole your documents? Oh God!

Loote’s defence
As other MPs put pressure on the presidency minister Beatrice Wabudeya to reveal the names of the state house scholarship beneficiaries, Moroto MP Ogwel Loote did not take part. He instead asked his colleagues to leave the matter because the president picks whoever he wants. “Let’s leave that. I know the president has offered scholarship even to people in Moroto. It is the president who decides to leave or give,” he said. This infuriated the committee members who told him that he was talking like that because he was a beneficiary.

Kityo saves
Former Mawokota MP Mutebi Kityo has learnt to save because he is no longer an MP. On Tuesday journalists wondered why the former MP was driving a small car instead of a Pajero that he used to drive. “why are you squeezing in that small
car?” a nosy scribe asked. “I am saving fuel. Don’t you know how expensive it has become?” he shot back. Hmm, being an MP is not all about service, after all!
