A list containing signatures of MPs petitioning the Speaker to recall Parliament for a special sitting over the arrest of fellow MPs relating to their comments about the death of the 24 year old Butaleja MP; Cerina Nebanda.

Hon Muhamed Nsereko, Brenda Nabukenya and Hon Ssemujju while visiting Hon Kipoi Nsubuga, who is on remand for treason, had him sign the petition to recall parliament. The list was later confiscated by the OC, who said he will first consult the prison chief over the list.

The petition to recall parliament has deeply divided the ruling party, pitting the President on one side who has angrily warned party members of dire consequences if they signed the petition to recall Parliament.

The President tried in vain to talk Speaker Rebecca Kadaga against accepting to the petition to recall Parliament reasoning that it’s a constitutional right for MPs to petition the speaker to recall parliament from recess if they if the required signatures can be obtained.

By last evening over 130 MPs had signed the petition. A number above what is required to recall Parliament from recess.

There is a looming showdown between the executive and the parliament.

  1. This being true who should the first suspect to this nasty act.The Government for sure because it is the one fighting this move.But this is nothing because those who who have signed can still do the same work in one day and the difference remains the same but of course with double work.
