We Are Behind You, NUP Pledges To Support Zaake In Court

National Unity Platform, NUP, has pledged to support their candidate, Hon. Francis Zaake as he heads to court to challenge the move parliament made to do away with him as parliament commissioner.

NUP Secretary-General, Lewis Rubongoya, said they will not in anyway abandon Zaake in this fight. He added that process that the parliament used to throw him out as commissioner is wrong.

“We are ready to support Zaake in court because the process that the parliament used to throw him out as commissioner is wrong. It was just intended to hurt Zaake and NUP supporters’ feelings,” Rubongoya said.

Zaake was last week kicked out of the parliament commission. The committee on Rules, Discipline and Privileges concluded that he had insulted the deputy speaker Anita Among.

Up until now, this judgment is still not convincing some people. The fact that they also expect him to apologize after this has angered so many people.

Erias Lukwago, the Kampala Lord Mayor said if they wanted an apology, they should have asked for it before.

Meanwhile, Joel Ssenyonyi said that the parliament instead of focusing on matters that are oppressing people like the increasing commodity prices, they are handling petty issues.

“It is very unfortunate that the parliament chose to focus on hating Zaake rather than focusing on issues that are oppressing people,” Ssenyonyi said.

Ssenyonyi has represented the thoughts of many. According to many people, Zaake’s issues are nowhere close to what is currently pressing the nation. Unfortunately, the August house seems to have its own list of priorities.
