Dokolo – 7, May 2021: The Dokolo Woman MP, Cecilia Atim Barbra Ogwal has saluted the 10th Parliament under the stewardship of Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga Alitwala, the speaker.

In her communication via her official Facebook page, the veteran politician who belongs to the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party, commends parliament for passing two Bills: Sexual Offenses and Prohibition of Human Sacrifices Bills.

“The concluding 10th Parliament last week passed two important pieces of legislations meant to protect the citizens from sexual predation and the cruel human sacrifice,” she said.

“The passing of two private member’s Bills including: the Sexual Offenses Bill moved by Hon. Monica Amoding and Prevention and the Prohibition of Human Sacrifice Bill moved by Hon. Benard Atiku are milestones primly engraved in the history of the 10th Parliament under the stewardship of Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga.”

According to her, “our daughters, sisters, mothers and even men will no longer suffer the humiliation of sexual assaults like indecent touching, gestures, rape and many others”.

For human sacrifice, she says the perpetrators “face imprisoned for life” and those who “injure the victims in the act will face 10 years”.

“The Act also provides for the death penalty for persons that finance other persons to commit offences of human sacrifice,” she added.

“Thank you again 10th Parliament and more especially the movers of the Bills.”

Parliament will get a new speaker and deputy speaker after swearing in of president (elect) on 12, May 2021. Jacob Oulanyah (current deputy speaker), Rebecca Kadaga and Ibrahim Ssemuju Nganda (FDC), and others are in the race for the speakership position.

It’s no longer a secret that MP Cecilia Ogwal is a fan of Kadaga, and she has, on several occasions praised Kadaga for her efforts in the country.
