Youth leaders under the Coalition for A Better Uganda have petitioned President Museveni calling for an immediate inquiry into the leadership of Parliament.

While addressing media, Tanbull Akampa, the coalition national coordinator, asked Museveni to show leadership and punish all leaders mentioned in the plundering of Karamoja relief items including iron sheets, goats, and maize flour.

Speaker Anita Among appeared on the list of the leaders who benefited from the iron sheets alongside Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja, First Deputy Prime Minister Rebecca Kadaga and Karamoja Affairs Ministers Mary Goretti Kitutu. The others members of parliament include State Minister Agnes Nandutu, Finance Minister Matia Kasaija, and State Minister Amos Lugolobi among others.

We want to call upon President Museveni to direct an investigation on the leadership of parliament,” he said citing ‘reliable intelligence’ that the mafia are using parliament to destabilise this country.

Akampa also claimed the leadership of Parliament is working hard to turn Ugandans against President Museveni to gain ground to overthrow him.

Akampa there for asked Among to return Karamoja relief items and resign in public interest.

We want to call upon the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Anita Among to return the iron sheets that were meant for Karamoja but at the sometimes resign in the public interest,” he said, the coalition would raise the needed signatures to quash her membership in Parliament.

Parliament has now become a theatre of deal-makers instead of legislating on issues that affect common Ugandans, like unemployment, Corruption, lack of drugs in health centers, poorly facilitated UPE schools, poor roads…It (parliament) is busy swimming in scandal after scandal and now they have no moral authority to even make government account.”

He noted that Parliament has lost its legislative direction and now the Members of Parliament are using the Anti-Homosexuality Bill to divert the public from demanding accountability.

Let us demand for accountability and service delivery from this government. We call upon all leaders from political parties to join us in demanding for accountability and because deserve it.”
