MPs Irked By Govt’s Failure To Show Report On UPDF Deployment In DRC

For the second consecutive time, government failed to provide a report to Parliament detailing the country’s deployment of its troops in DR Congo.

MPs led by Lwemiyaga county legislator Theodore Ssekikubo said the delay to present the report sends a wrong message to the public.

They said it shows that the executive undermines Parliament warning legislatures of the outcomes.

Last week, PM Robinah Nabbanja promised parliament to present a comprehensive report of Uganda’s deployment of its troops in DRC.

However, on December 7, when everyone expected the presentation, the Minister for Defense and Veteran Affairs, Vincent Ssempijja, failed to appear.

This led Ssekikubo to question when the government intends to present to Parliament the long-awaited report.

The fire-spitting legislator also had zero kind words for the government chief whip Thomas Tayebwa. Tayebwa, last week, indicated that government will present a report whenever it wishes to do so.

It has been more than a week since Uganda deployed troops in DR Congo to ostensibly flash out ADF rebels. The deployment agreed upon by the two countries has drawn mixed reactions from the public.
