President Museveni has called for a caucus crisis meeting to discuss the Gen. Tumwine censure that is currently going on Parliament
Reports indicate that the meeting is aimed at improving the souring relations between Members of Parliament and Gen. Tumwine who is currently facing censure.
A few days ago the Parliament Human rights committee tabled before Parliament a report on the existence of safe houses across Uganda and part of their recommendations included holding Gen.Tumwine accountable for blocking investigations into safe houses.
Despite the Panic currently going on in the NRM camp, Members of Parliament led by Lwemiyaga East Legislator Theodore Ssekikubo has declared that even if Museveni intervenes, they are not giving up on the Tumwine Censure motion.
Ssekikubo added: “ President Museveni is making a big mistake by trying to cling to Gen Tumwine and it will set a very bad precedent. It is totally unfair for the caucus to salvage him because no one sent him to be in contempt of parliament, he is seeking sympathy from caucus,”
According to some NRM legislators, today’s’ caucus meeting is expected to have a heated exchange because MPs are willing and determined to have Gen. Tumwine censured.
NRM rebel MPs who have not been invited to the meeting have urged their fellow NRM colleagues to pick the right side of the matter without being sorry.
According to Lydia Wanyoto, today’s caucus meeting is expected to unite Parliament and Gen. Tumwine on the orders of President Museveni.
