On Tuesday, a meeting of 15 legislators was summoned to strategize on a plot aimed at influencing House speaker Rebecca Kadaga against expelling the fired NRM rebel MPs from parliament.
Insiders intimated to Red Pepper that the meeting was summoned by Butambala Woman MP Mariam Nalubega.
Two weeks ago, the Central Executive Committee (CEC) of the ruling National Resistance Movement resolved to expel MPs Theodore Ssekikubo (Lwemiyaga), Barnabas Tinkasiimire (Buyaga), Wilfred Niwagaba (Ndorwa East) and Mohammad Nsereko (Kampala Central) over alleged indiscipline.
The party has since written to Kadaga asking her to write to the Electoral Commission declaring vacant the four seats held by the expelled rebel MPs.
Kadaga is currently swimming in politically troubled waters in respect to how she will respond to an NRM CEC resolution (to which she is party), seeking to fire the four knifed legislators.
Insiders however told Red Pepper that the group of 15 legislators who were supposed to meet didn’t actually do so because of mistrust. We were informed some of the members started accusing their colleagues of being moles.
This group according to sources wants to stand out clearly and warn the Speaker Kadaga against taking any decision with regard to the rebels because it will have both legal and political implications.
