“I have no fear for anyone, because when you’re in Parliament your all equal until voted to various positions, I am here to represent Ugandans. As voted for Speaker I am not going to serve any individual, I am going to serve Ugandans,” Kinyamatama said.

Other MPs who have already expressed interest for the seat are incumbent Rebecca Kadaga, Jacob Oulanyah and Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda.

The new Speaker and Deputy Speaker of Parliament will be elected in May by the Members of Parliament after their swearing-in.
