He apologized for any inconvenience caused and added that they won’t allow such shortfalls to reoccur in the future.

“The Parliament’s twitter account was hacked and despite our best efforts, we are not able to recover it. However, we were able to recover the username and have created a new account to ensure we continue providing updates and engage with you as we have always done,’

“We assure the public that we are taking all necessary steps to ensure that such incidents do not occur in the future. We urge you to follow our new account @Parliament _Ug for plenary updates and official communication from parliament,” Obore further said in his statement.

Meanwhile, the House spent the whole of yesterday eulogizing the late state minister for labour, Col Charles Okello Engola.
