NRM caucus to decide fate of embattled commissioners
Mathias Mpuuga and the commissioners are back in hot soup

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) party is set to hold the parliamentary caucus during which Lwemiyaga County MP Theodore Ssekikubo will be tasked to explain his censure motion against the party commissioners.

According to NRM secretary general Richard Todwong, the party has asked Government Chief Whip Hamson Obua to furnish them with the details of the said matter, including the evidence to be discussed in caucus.

"We are thinking of inviting caucus to here both sides, those singing the censure motion and those not signing," said Todwong.

Much as the matter of service award has been in public for months now, the NRM is yet to come up with a clear stand on whether their party nominated commissioners committed a crime when they shared among themselves together with the former leader of opposition Uganda Shs1.7 billion.

Ssekikubo has since moved to collect signatures to have the commissioners censured.

However, Obua has denied receiving any inquiries about the matter. He notes he took an individual initiative to brief the party secretary general bout the same.

"I have not received any letter from the SG. On the contrary, I have informed him about the situation, out of courtesy," he said.

NRM legislators were yesterday asked to go slow on the censure motion. Some however insist, it's within their right to support the censure without waiting for the party.
