The Rules and Disciplinary parliamentary committee today kicks off its investigations in the conduct of Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and state minister for Lands Persis Namuganza over Busoga issues.

This matter was raised by Ngora County MP David Abala and deputy speaker Jacob Oulanyah refered the matter to this committee.

The directive followed a procedural matter raised by Ngora County MP, David Abala (NRM) who said that the conflict as captured in the media was irritating and required explanation.

For more than three weeks, Namuganza has allegedly mounted a verbal war against the Speaker. She went ahead and told her supporters in Bukono County, Namutumba district to boycott all activities organised by the Speaker.

She is also accused of rebelling against the Kyabazinga and supporting a rival Prince, Edward Columbus Wambuzi. The Kyabazinga is Gabula Nadiope.

When her comments were reported in the media, the Busoga Parliamentary group rushed to slap a ban on her in their activities. She responded by saying she did not care.

Although the forum had also told Namuganza not to go to their constituents, she said she could go anywhere and nobody would block her.

Therefore, given the turn of events, Oulanyah said that since there were no facts, Parliament would not rush into discussing the matter, thus the directive to the committee, chaired by Obote Ongalo (NRM-Kalaki County.)

The committee will among other things look at circumstances under which the statements are being made, the factors leading to them and give solutions to Parliament.

Committee vice chair Abas Agaba says they will start with Hon David Abala today to give his version before the said officials can be invited.
