The Rakai Woman Member of Parliament Juliet Kinyamatama has announced her bid to contest for the speakership of the 11th parliament.
She joins the four candidates including the incumbent speaker Rebecca Kadaga and her deputy Jacob Oulanya, FDC’s Ibrahim Ssemujju and DP’s Richard Ssebamala who already announced their bids for the same seat.
Launching her campaign this morning at Parliament, Kinyamatama said that she is going to represent the youths who are the majority in the country and will ensure that all government agencies employ 50% of the youths in the country.
Kinyamatama also says that she will greatly improve accountability to the public, something that has been missing in the current leadership hence damaging the reputation of the current parliament.
Kinyamatama becomes the second woman to contest against Kadaga who has been the only female in the race. She says she is not scared of anyone and is ready to compete.
