Persis Namuganza, the Minister Of State For Lands, has said MPs should produce evidence that shows she disrespected the legislators.
The Minister is being investigated for allegedly questioning the integrity of the House over the Nakawa-Naguru land give-away when she appeared before an Adhoc committee investigating the saga early this year.
Yesterday, Namuganza appeared before the disciplinary committee but she said she had nothing to say about the allegations. Apparently, they hold no evidence to this claim.
The committee Chairperson, Abdu Katuntu, said that there is no evidence to provide to the minister but it will be brought forth as investigations go on.
“What evidence do you require from us before we receive it? We are here to investigate. The evidence we are going to hear is later – we have not heard any single evidence before the committee,” he said.
However, she says people misquote them a lot especially when they are delivering the president’s verbal instructions.
“When we meet the president, sometimes he gives verbal instructions. But when you reach the committee and deliver the instructions, you are accused of concocting them without further inquiry. This is very unfortunate.”
Meanwhile, investigations are still going on to reach the bottom of this case because legislators insist that the Minister treated them disrespectfully.
