Kadaga bans MPs from debating on Boda boda 2010

Speaker heading for Parliamentary sitting

The parliament of Uganda has been forced to halt the debate on the controversial issues and arrest of the Boda Boda 2010 group.

Speaking to lawmakers during Tuesday’s plenary, the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga this should be done to allow room for ongoing investigation into this sector.

Kadaga adds that once Parlaiment continues to debate and formulate reports on this matter, it may sabota the findings security organs on the matter.

In November last year, parliament adopted a motion by the Bunya East MP Waira Majegere on investigating the conduct of boda boda operators in Kampala that are being accused of facilitating crime.

It should be remembered that on 23rd January, a section of lawmakers led by Lwemiyaga’s Hon. Theodore Sekikubo and Klak Hon. Gilbert Oulanyah narrowly exchanged fists with UPDF officials.

The saga started in the committee room when Uganda People’s Defense forces officials tempted to shun some questions something that tempted MP Sekikubo to block defense Ministry officials from leaving Parliamentary committee meeting after they refused to answer to queries on the apparent rift between UPDF and police.
