Judge Cecilia Ogwal has made her ruling and it appears Hon. Rebecca Kadaga has been acquitted in the mysterious “Who deserves Speakership?” case.
Actually the Opposition chief whip’s colleagues in Lango Parliamentary group have also Tuesday endorsed Rebecca Kadaga for Speaker of the 10th Parliament.
The NRM Central Executive Committee (CEC) decided Monday night to maintain the status quo; Ms Kadaga remains the speaker and Mr Jacob Oulanyah her deputy.
Cecilia Ogwal who also hails from the same region as Mr Oulanyah is explaining that the opposition is not fronting any candidate for the positions because their number cannot favorably compete with that of the ruling NRM party.
The Dokolo Woman legislator reveals that with less than 60 opposition MPs, they cannot compete with the huge NRM numbers.
“Because first of all i will have to count to my numbers and even in the bible, you know I read the bible a lot. The bible says before you go to war count your cost so I already know, if am a member of the opposition and we are about 50 or 60 of us confronting 300 NRM. I will definitely vote for the NRM candidate because we’re too weak to have our own. All we have to dos is build consensus around the right leadership, consensus is important for us as Ugandans and I think that’s the position we have taken at the moment.”
Guess all that animosity was enough for Mr Oulanyah to opt for the lesser job.
