MPS Guma Gumisiriza and Mafabi Nandala have been asked to drop investigations into the Mukwano Group of Companies.
They are also to be issued with warning letters instructing them to strictly comply with parliamentary rules and procedures.
The parliamentary committee on rules, privileges and discipline says in its report that Mafabi (Budadiri West) and Guma (Ibanda North) were found guilty of contravening parliamentary rules of procedure in investigating Mukwano individually instead of acting as a committee.
The recommendations were in a 17-page report by the committee on privileges. It was on allegations made against Mafabi, the chairman of the committee on national economy, and Guma, a member of the committee.
Mukwano through their lawyers Chris Bwanika and Oscar Kambona complained of the irregularities in the manner in which the committee handled their Group in respect of palm oil products imported as raw materials.
The Committee’s report presented to Parliament on Friday by its chairman Ben Wacha stated, “Rule 138 gives mandate to the committee of national economy as a whole and not its individual members, to review, consider or scrutinise all matters relating to national economy in general.”
In their testimonies, Mafabi and Guma admitted to have individually investigated Mukwano imports.
