The Parliamentary sitting which should have been happening by now has been postponed.
The postponement was caused due to an important State engagement between Deputy Speaker, Rt. Hon. Jacob Oulanya and some government officials in Kampala.
In her message to Members of the 10th Parliament on Tuesday, Clerk to Parliament, Mrs Jane Kibirige says due to such meeting, her office was directed to announce today’s sitting deferred.
“The Rt. Hon. Deputy Speaker is held up in an important State engagement, which he had anticipated would have ended early enough for him to preside over today’s Plenary Sitting. Given that he is not able to make it, I have been directed to inform you that Parliament will not sit today, Tuesday 7, August, 2018 as earlier scheduled. Parliament will instead resume sitting tomorrow Wednesday 8, August 7, 2018,” Clerk to Parliament’s message to MPs reads.
