- Buyaga MP Barnabas Tinkasimire called a press conference to communicate to the public the facts surrounding the censure of security minister Amama Mbabazi by some NRM MPs. Little did he know that things would backfire! As soon as he finished reading his speech, journalists put him to task to substantiate that journalists were also bribed to write negative stories about Mbabazi. â€œCan you prove that we were bribed? If you cannot, please, apologise now,â€ one journalist said. When he realised that things were hot, he fled from the irate journalists.
- Whoever thought that all police officers are knowledgeable should think again. On Thursday, the Owino police post chief, Aggrey Wakabi, gaped before MPs on the parliamentary committee probing the conduct of police when they asked him several questions. They were astonished when Wakabi failed to explain the roles of MPs. â€œYou donâ€™t even know the names of the police officers who arrested Nabilah? You canâ€™t even explain the roles of an MP! What kind of police officer are you to arrest an MP?â€ Fred Jabi wondered.
- Finance minister Ezra Suruma is a man knows how to stand his ground. During debate on the budgetary estimates on Wednesday, Mps put him to task over why he had defied their orders to provide more money to the auditor Generalâ€™s office this financial year. Even when deputy speaker Rebecca Kadaga insisted she would not allow him to defy them, Suruma insisted: â€œHonorable Speaker, it will be unconstitutional to provide more money, unless you tell me where to get it from.â€ Kadaga advised him to do more consultations.
- Kabarole woman MP Margaret Muhanga is not impressed by Buyaga MP Barnabas Tinkasimire. She thinks he is a not man enough. She maintained before journalists at Parliament that she challenged Tinkansimire during a talk-show on radio CBS to prove whether he was a man, but he failed. Muhanga believes that if Tinkasimire was a man, he couldnâ€™t have alleged that some NRM MPs were raising money to censure security minister Amama Mbabazi. â€œAre you a man? What type of man are you? Can you prove now that you are a man?â€ Muhanga repeatedly asked.
