This Is Free Country, Let The Children Learn- Speaker Anita Among Tells MUK Vice Chancellor

The Speaker of Parliament, Hon Anita Among surprised many when she took to her X page and exonerated the lecturers at Makerere University’s School of Law.

The Speaker revealed that Uganda is a free country and the students at this school should be left alone to study as they wish.

This followed the news that the University Chancellor, Barnabas Nawangwe had summoned the lecturers at the School of Law.

This was following a paper they had set regarding the happenings at Parliament and the infamous service awards.

The Vice Chancellor in his letter wanted to find out if the paper meets the minimum academic requirements. Additionally, he also wanted to find out whether the paper fell below the expected standards.

Since then, different voices have been heard on social media with many calling this an intimidation. The Speaker decided to address the situation once she got wind of it.

Additionally, the Speaker said that as Parliament, they are open to public scrutiny. This is because they believe that it’s the pillar upon which their entire work is founded. She went ahead to say that she sees no problem in the exam that was set.

Furthermore, she even said that these students will be provided with the context of what happened in this particular occurrence. This will then help them to form their own opinion as academicians.

“As Parliament, we unreservedly submit to public scrutiny, which we believe is the pillar upon which a strong, representative legislature is founded. I, therefore, find no fault in the exam set for the students and I believe our duty will be to give the students unbiased context on what exactly happened during the sitting in issue. This is so that, as academicians, they form their own opinion on the conduct of public affairs. And how they will improve them when it is their turn to be in charge of the management of our society. Let the children learn,” she said.
