Mukono Woman MP Betty Nambooze has today petitioned the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga querying the authenticity of the report made by the committee of Public Service and Local Government on KCCA.

 

In her petition to the speaker, Nambooze alleges that in the committee sitting yesterday, she witnessed members of the committee signing two sets of attendance registers which points to falsification of minutes.

 

 She claims that there was an attendance list dated 15th May, 2013 yet the committee had not convened on that day.

 

She added that even the vice chairperson of the committee Rafael Magezi confirmed to the press on that particular day that the meeting had flopped due to absence of members and failure of the clerk to secure a sitting room.

 

//Cue in: “the committee was…..

Cue out:……so we have not been”//

 

She named MPs Besisira Ignatius, Magyezi Rafeal, Kintu Florence, Mable Bakeine, Nanyondo Birungi Sarah and Mubito John as committee members she witnessed signing the alleged false attendance list yesterday.

 

The Mukono woman MP reiterated allegations she made last week that the meeting that adopted the report that was tabled before Parliament last week was discussed in a sitting on the 12th of May which was a Sunday.

 

She assumes that Florence Kintu, the committee chairperson, is being blackmailed by the KCCA executive to write a fake report.

 

Parliament is this afternoon expected to debate the KCCA report in which Nambooze will also table her petition. She states that if denied an opportunity she will resort to courts of law.

 

Yesterday the NRM caucus held a special meeting in which it was resolved that all party members back the report’s main resolution to have President Yoweri Museveni take over KCCA.

 

However, Nambooze argues that the law prohibits him from doing so since KCCA is already an authority under the President.
