Kabuleeta advised the legislators to stand together and tell the president he doesn’t own this country.
“I wish for once; the Parliament would be united and tell the President and his wife that they don’t own this country.”
Joseph Kabuleeta says the first lady has no right to summon legislators. In the first place, according to him, the legislators are the ones to summon her.
However, he says because she is now engaged in politics, the spot is very compromised.
“The problem started when the First Lady developed ambitions for politics. She is summoning the Parliament because she is the First Lady, and she will get away with it. Some people will not go, but that meeting will still happen.”
The first lady had summoned legislators to meet at Kololo independence grounds. In this meeting, the first lady was supposed to discuss with the MPs about the reopening of schools.
However due to reasons unknown, they called off the meeting. This meeting caused a lot of talk in Parliament and among legislators.
Some MPs expressed disappointment in Speaker Oulanyah who supported this idea. However, according to him, this was for the good of the pupils and students.
“Essentially, this is about pupils and students who have been out of school for long, teachers and parents who are all affected by the impact of COVID-19. The opportunity we have is what we can collectively do to facilitate reopening of schools, a big issue that we must deal with,” Oulanyah said.
