Gomba West MP Robina Rwakoojo is optimistic that her experience in law will win her the endorsement of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Central Executive Committee (CEC) for the Deputy Speaker race.
Led by Julius Maganda the East African Affairs State Minister and Sami-Bugwe County MP, the legislators asked Oboth Oboth to do aggressive consultations before they can endorse his candidature as a team.
Oulanyah was called to preside over Wednesday’s session to allow Speaker Rebecca Kadaga to mourn her niece Sheila Alitwala Kadaga who died on Monday. This came moments after Koboko Woman MP Margaret Babadiri put Kadaga to the task to explain the whereabouts of the Deputy Speaker at a time when she needed a break to deal with the loss.
They include West Budama North MP Jacob Oboth-Oboth, Bukedea Woman MP Anita Among, Kampala Central MP Muhammad Nsereko, Ruhinda North MP Thomas Tayebwa, Gomba West MP Robinah Rwakojo, Theodore Ssekikubo, the Lwemiyaga County MP and State Minister for Finance David Bahati.
