Parliament on Monday passed and adopted the censure motion against the State Minister for Housing Persis Namuganza.
This had earlier been tabled by the chairperson of the Select Committee Mwine Mpaka following a censure motion moved by Agago Member of Parliament Amos Okot last year in December.
The motion has attracted 348 votes in favour, three abstained, five voted against the motion out of the total number of 356 MPs who attended the Monday’s session chaired by the Deputy Speaker of Parliament Thomas Tayebwa.
While communicating to the house, Tayebwa said that the parliament resolution of the adoption of the censure motion on Namuganza will be communicated to the president within 24 hrs for further guidance or implementation.
Namuganza’s fate on censure from the position of the State Minister for housing emanated last year after the Agago MP Okot moved a censure motion which gathered over 200 signature protesting the misconduct, misbehavior and attack of both parliament and the speaker of Parliament by Namuganza in the public which motion was later forwarded to a select committee for investigations.
According to the findings of the select committee report read on Monday in parliament by Mpaka, it was found that the acts of Minister Namuganza were Prima Facie and worst of all she refused to appear before the committee to present her case of grievances.
