Minister Namuganza Fails To Show Up Before Censure Committee

State minister of Lands, Persis Namuganza, failed to show up before the censure committee that is apparently looking into her case. She is accused of forging a presidential directive to give away prime land at Nakawa Naguru to investors.

This forced parliament to summon her to appear before a censure committee to review the evidence. This meeting had to take place yesterday but despite the invitation letters that were sent to her, the minister still did not appear before the committee.

The room in which the select committee had to listen to the evidence and defense on the censure motion filled up to capacity. The committee members waited for nearly an hour for the minister to make an appearance.

From 10:00am until lunch hours, MPs waited for the minister’s knock at the door or at worst her representative, but in vain.

Many even suspected that the representative could have been present at the time but just chose to remain silent.

The committee could not wait anymore so they commenced without her. It received 15 days to do investigations on the matter and report back to the house on January 24.

The committee is apparently investigating allegations against the minister of using social media to tarnish the Parliament’s image.

Mwine Mpaka, the committee chairperson said he had not received any response from the minister. This is despite the invitations they sent her earlier in the week. The committee clerk also revealed that copies of these summoning letters were sent to the Ministry of Lands.

The same were sent to her email, as well as to her WhatsApp account which were apparently opened.

Prime Minister, Robinah Nabbanja also received a copy of the summoning letter in addition to the Government Chief Whip, Denis Hamson Obua.
