Parliament vets Balaam, Aber and Nyamutoro as ministers

Must read

Parliament has vetted the ministerial nominees as minister of defence, of state, ministers of youth and children affairs, minerals, trade, and others.

Last week, President Yoweri Museveni made a mini reshuffle where he dropped a seasoned minister for minister of defence and affairs, Vincent Ssempijja, and replaced him with Jacob Marson Oboth Oboth.

According to the reshuffle, Museveni named Balaam state minister for youth and children affairs, replacing Sarah Mateke, who has since been named state minister for security.

Lillian Aber, Kitgum Woman MP, who is an ardent supporter of Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, was appointed Minister of State for relief, disaster preparedness, and refugees, replacing Esther Anyakun, while Phiona Nyamutoro, the National Female Youth MP, was named Minister of State for minerals.

Appearing before the nomination committee, which was chaired by Speaker Anita Among, the nominees were vetted by designated ministries.

Speaking shortly after his nomination, Balaam applauded the speaker and all the other members of the committee for professionally handling this exercise.

“Like I recently stated, the mission is partly to socially and economically better the lives of the Ugandan youth as well as improve their health and that of the children in Uganda,” he said.

“This morning, I was vetted as the designated Minister of State for Energy and Mineral Development (Minerals) by the Appointments Committee chaired by Speaker Anitah Among. I am grateful that the journey to adding more blocks to Uganda’s development is relentless,” Nyamutoro said.

“I have successfully been vetted by the Appointments Committee at Parliament. Thank you, speaker, and the entire committee for the good work,” Aber said on Twitter.
