Investigations finds Namuganza guilty of offending Kadaga
Lands Minister Persis Namuganza was wrong to insult Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and must either apologize or be suspended from Parliament.
This is contained in a report compiled by Parliament’s Committee on Rules, Discipline and Privileges on the recommendation of Deputy Speaker Jacob Oulanyah. This was after Namuganza, who is also the Bukono constituency MP, lashed at Kadaga, along with the Kyabazinga of Busoga, William Gabula Nadiope IV, for interfering in cultural matters of Bukono after the Speaker presided over the installing of a chief in Bukono County, Namutumba district.
However, the committee found Namuganda guilty of making “false, offensive and insulting statements” against Kadaga. The report says her utterances were abuse of the office of the Speaker and that the Lands minister acted in breach of public trust contrary to Paragraph 5 of Appendix F of the Code of Conduct.
