Plenary to Resume after Kavuma’s Injunction Was Quashed

By Serestino Tusingwire

Parliament is set to resume its plenary sittings on Wednesday this week after a short period of closure.

In a statement released on Monday signed by clerk to parliament, Jane Kibirige, plenary sessions will resume on Wednesday at 2pm while all committee activities will resume on Tuesday January 17.

It’s worth noting that parliament was adjourned since Tuesday 10th January following a mixed reaction in the house against an injunction that was barring it from debating the Shs6bn oil cash bonanza saga.

On January 9, the deputy chief justice, Steven Kavuma issued an injunction restraining parliament, any person or authority from investigating, questioning or inquiring into” the Shs6bn presidential handshake saga.

However, the no nonsense Kadaga called the injunction ‘stupid’ and adjourned the Parliament indefinitely until it is withdrawn.

This forced the judiciary to announce the withdrawal of the injunction and the petitioner, Eric Sabiiti apologized for his acts intending to block parliament proceeding on the matter.
