Parliament appointments committee Wednesday postponed the vetting of two ministerial nominees.

The committee chaired by Parliament Speaker, Rebecca Kadaga, was scheduled to vet former Chief of Defence Forces, Gen Aronda Nyakairima who was appointed internal affairs minister and Dr. Erioda Tumwesigye (state minister for health in charge of general duties).

The duo was named ministers in a recent cabinet reshuffle. No date has been communicated when the nominees will appear for vetting.

A source told New Vision that the Speaker told the nominees that she had raised some issues with the appointing authority which were yet to be responded to.

Asked to comment about the committee’s decision to postpone the vetting, Aronda said “The chairperson of the committee said they will consider us in due course. The vetting lies entirely in the hands of the committee. We shall wait.”
