UPDF Deployment; It Is Courteous That Parliament Is Briefed Immediately – DP

Democratic Party Spokesperson, Okoler Opio Lo Amanu has joined the ongoing talk about UPDF deployment. He says it’s only courteous that they brief Parliament immediately after the UPDF deployment.

He agrees with the fact that there is no law to support this right now but they should do it. Okoler also says it is not right to inform MPs with citizens about the whereabouts of the UPDF.

“It is absurd that they briefed members of the legislature together with the citizens on the media about the progress of “Operation Suja” as they call it. Why would the executive do that? There is only one reason to answer this question namely, avoiding accountability,” he said.

The Democratic Party, therefore, demands that the president briefs Parliament on “Operation Suja.”

“The Democratic Party demands that the president briefs Parliament on the arrangement under which the said “Operation Suja” is being executed, and that the bilateral agreement being a public document be accessed by all Ugandans and also be subjected to Parliament for scrutiny,” he said.

Yesterday, government failed to respond to the queries of Parliament. Unfortunately, they did nothing of the sort which made the legislators angrier.

This topic is still hanging in balance until something comes out from the government side.
