Hon. Chris Baryomunsi Says Ministers Don’t Have To Attend Plenary Sessions To Show They Are Working

Minister of Information Communication and Technology, Chris Baryomunsi, has said Ministers don’t have to attend Plenary sessions to show they are working. In any case, he says they will not be evaluated according to the number of times they have attended plenary sessions but how they will have delivered regarding their positions.

“There is no crisis. The Ministers have been attending and will continue to attend Parliament. I don’t think Ugandans will judge us based on whether we answer questions in Parliament. They will judge us on service delivery.”

“We did agree, as Cabinet, that largely because of the space issue, within the Ministry, at least one Minister can be in Parliament. When you have an issue on the Order Paper, then the Minister should come.”

Unlike what most of the parliamentary members have been thinking, he says it’s not true that Ministers are disrespecting the chief whip.

“Absenteeism has been a problem both for the front and back bench. It’s not true that Ministers don’t respect the Leader of Government Business. I think the Government Chief Whip needs to improve the whipping system.”

Baryomunsi, however, promised that they are going to improve the coordination of government going forward. This will improve the presence of Ministers in Parliament.
