The mover of a motion to censure Gen. Elly Tumwine has finally withdrawn the petition after MPs shied away from the censure process.
With only hours left to the D.Day for the petitioners to kick-start the censure process, the lead petitioners have thrown in the towel, citing betrayal and pretence from their colleagues.
Kasambya MP Hon. Mbwa Tekamwa, the mover of the infamous motion says he has already formally withdrawn the petition after MPs kept on giving flimsy excuses for failing to sign the petition.
The mover of the Motion who is the mp for Kasambya County Gaffa Mbwatekamwa said that the 39 signatures attained are still few from the 150 needed for the censuring Gen Tumwine.
Mbwa says Ugandans should never again think there is opposition in parliament since the bulk of MPs from the opposition didn’t sign. He said during the process, he realised that even the so-called opposition in parliament is actually not.
However, Manjiya County MP John Baptist Nambeshe disagreed with the withdrawal of the motion saying that MPs who appended their signatures were not consulted over this move of withdrawal.
