A section of MPs opposed to the amendment of Article 102 b of the Constitution have declined to meet president Museveni.
MPs Mathias Mpuuga, Medard Lubega Sseggona & Theodore Ssekikubo claim that their colleagues traveling to meet Museveni have been promised 300m/=
The interface by the Committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs is scheduled for this afternoon, to seek the president’s take on the bill presented by Igara West MpRaphael Magyezi.
Some of the Committee members including Masaka Municipality MP Mathias Mpuuga and Messed Segona are among those who declined to meet Museveni.
The lawmakers, enjoined by other opponents of the Bill like Lwemiyaga County MP Theodore Sekikubo contend that the meeting with president Museveni is a ritual.
The MPs who addressed journalists at Parliament on Tuesday say the meeting between the Committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs and President Museveni scheduled for this afternoon at State House, Entebbe is suspicious given its manner of execution.
“We would like to make it clear that we take serious exception to the illusion that Parliament has money to dish out to MPs but there is no money to carryout public consultations on the sensitive bill,” Mr Mpuuga said.
“We are here to advise the committee leadership to step on their brakes and whoever is rushing them to move a bit slow because they are about to hit a rock; they are sliding very fast behind the drain,” he added
They have also challenged the manner in which the Committee is being hosted by a witness.
