Jacob Oulanyah Orders Investigation into Kadaga-Namuganza Feud
Kadaga-Namuganza Feud: Oulanyah Orders Probe
Recently, Namuganza threatened to harm Busonga king (Kyabazinga) William Wilberforce Gabula Nadiope IV and Kadaga.
Minister Namuganza, also Bukono County MP, in Namutumba district, rallied her supporters to stone Gabula Nadiope IV and Kadaga.
Namuganza accuses Kadaga of opening war against her.
According to Namuganza, Kadaga and Kyabazinga installed a new chief in Bukono without consulting her.
“Kadaga should have declared war on the famine and drought that has hit Busoga,” stung Namuganza at a recent event to launch boreholes.
“She should have declared war on jiggers that attacked Kamuli. But for her to come and declare war on me…”
Namuganza also vowed: “I will also declare war on her because she isn’t immune from death.”
After Namuganza’s attack on Kadaga and Kyabazinga, Busoga parliamentary caucus suspended the minister.
JACOB OULANYAH ORDERS PROBE INTO KADAGA-NAMUGANZA FEUD
On Thursday, Ngora County MP David Abala asked deputy speaker Jacob Oulanyah to refer the Namuganza-Kadaga feud to the rules committee.
“In the past one week, we have read from press the various utterances concerning our colleague Persis and Speaker,” started Abala.
“This matter concerns this institution and is something that is critical for us to understand the dynamics…
“So that we understand how this matter can be handled.”
In response, Oulanyah said: “I think we have all seen and read what the MP is referring”.
Oulanyah said the feud “relates to the leader of this institution which we don’t know details or where it is coming from”.
“Usually when such matters arise, they require that the House be briefed,” ruled Oulanyah.
“The Committee on Rules should determine where these utterances are coming from.”
This is the second matter MPs will be handling about their own discipline.
