Kira Municipality Member of Parliament (MP), Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, has vowed not to participate in the censure of four Parliamentary Commissioners.

Ssemujju, who describes the move as a mob action, says the MPs signing the censure motion are ignorant, as the Shs1.7 billion being talked about was passed by Parliament.

“Majority of the MPs signing the censure motion are ignorant about this matter. The service awards money was passed in Parliament. This is why I keep quarrelling with MPs who don’t want to read,” said Ssemujju as he explained why he declined to append his signature to the censure motion of Parliamentary Commissioners.

He added, “The MPs are actually censuring themselves because the money was approved by them. Also, most of them don’t even know the details in the parliamentary budget for the next financial year.”

Last week, a section of legislators, led by Ssekikubo, started collecting signatures to back their motion to censure Mathias Mpuuga, the former Leader of the Opposition, and three National Resistance Movement (NRM) Commissioners for allocating themselves Shs1.7 billion as a ‘service award.’

Mpuuga is reported to have received Shs500 million, while the other commissioners—Solomon Silwany (Bukooli Central), Esther Afoyochan (Zombo Woman), and Prossy Mbabazi (Rubanda Woman)—received Shs400 million each. The meeting in which this money was allocated and approved was chaired by Speaker Anita Among.

Over 100 signatures have been gathered out of the approximately 177 required to get the censure motion passed.
