The ruling National Resistance Movement has decided the fate of the party’s undisciplined MPs who have since been branded ‘rebel’ MPs by the media. The ‘rowdy’ lawmakers will face a disciplinary committee over their conduct.
The legislators who include; Lwemiyaga MP Theodore Sekikubo, Wilfred Nuwagaba, Kampala Central MP Muhammed Nsereko, Buyaga West representative Barnabas Tinkasiimire and Rwampara MP Vincent Kyamadidi will now face the party’s disciplinary committee that will be chaired by National Vice Chairman Moses Kigongo.
The NRM that is currently on a 10 day retreat at the Kyankwanzi leadership Centre to discuss the progress made has been grappling with the issue of some party members who go against the party positions.
The errant MPs demonstrated their ‘independence’ at the retreat by refusind to don the military fatigues usually won by the party members at Kyankwanzi.
The retreat comes on the heels of a move by some MPs seeking to recall parliament from recess over the death of their colleague, former Butaleja woman MP Cerinah Nebanda.
Nebanda passed away last month and her death has since been shrouded in controversy. Members of Parliament want the house recalled over the matter. Although the NRM leadership is not comfortable with the recall, the ‘rebel’ MPs have expressed full support for the move.
It is this behaviour that the partly leadership is concerned with and would like to deal with conclusively.
