Kadaga Says Her Rivals Are Fighting Her Using Media
Parliament Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has claimed one of her opponents for the Speaker job is ‘sponsoring’ stories in the media to decampaign her. She, however, did not name the opponent.
Ms Kadaga, who is seeking a second term as Speaker, is facing a challenge from Mr Jacob Oulanyah, her deputy. She also claims Foreign Affairs minister Sam Kutesa is secretly eying the Speaker job, although the latter has denied having any interest in the job or decampaigning her.
“The Idea is to show that Kadaga works more with the Opposition MPs (than the ruling party MPs),” Ms Kadaga said.
She was reacting to a story published last week in one of the local newspapers that claimed that Ms Kadaga had named a campaign team that mostly included Opposition MPs.
