A group of MPs on the Legal Affairs committee have snubbed a meeting with President Museveni over the proposed bill to amend article 102 (b) of the Constitution.
The MPs are: Matthias Mpuuga, the MP for Masaka Municipality, Medard Sseggona, the Busiro East MP and Theodore Ssekikubo, the Lwemiyaga MP.
Medard Sseggona, the Busiro East MP told journalists at parliament today that they cannot be part of a scheme to endorse the bill by accepting to meet Museveni.
“We cannot be part of that group. We cannot. We all know how this matter started and it was started by Museveni,” Sseggona said.
Sseggona said that the committee was supposed to move around the country but did not because parliament said there was no money.
Yet the same parliament spent Shs 13 billion to cater for MPs to consult people on the bill.
He said they will ask him in regards to his earlier statements made in the press about contesting again for the presidency.
He explained that they expect to hold a very formal meeting with the president, with the arm of building a report without any bias.
