COMMITTEE UNHAPPY WITH GOVERNMENT OVER BILL

The com­mit­tee on le­gal and Par­lia­men­tary Af­fairs has expressed its displeasure with the government over the failure to report back to the committee regarding the Constitution Amend­ment bill 2017 within the stipulated time.

The committee chaired by West Budama Mp Jacob Markson Oboth-Oboth on Aug 1, 2017 gave the Min­is­ter of Lands, Hous­ing and Urban development Betty Amongi and the minister for Jus­tice and Con­sti­tu­tion af­fairs Maj.Gen. Kahinda Otafiire two weeks to con­sult with their col­leagues in Cab­i­net on the Constitution Amend­ment bill

The re­quest arose af­ter the Min­is­ters failed to an­swer fun­da­men­tal ques­tions on what the amend­ment in­tended to cure.

Oboth-Oboth says the delay has stalled the committee work since they cannot get views from other stakeholders’ before the official position of the government.
