Yesterday Members of Parliament started the process of collecting signatures in a bid to censure Security Minister Gen. Elly Tumwine as passed by plenary last week.
By press time, MPs have only managed to collect just six signatures as members of the opposition seem to be divided on the issue.
Opposition Chief Whip, Ssemujju Nganda expressed his unwillingness to participate in the process saying Parliament should be blamed for confirming the appointments of individuals like Tumwine.
“How did a person like Tumwine go through the Parliamentary vetting? Such individuals should not be allowed to occupy such offices. We all know he is arrogant and feels entitled to everything,” Ssemujju said.
In order for the censorship to go through, the process has to raise over 150 signatures in the next 10 working days.
According to the movers of the motion, Tumwine is accused of obstructing the Parliamentary Committee on Human Rights from accessing safe houses and other ungazetted detention centres. He also blocked the head of ISO, Col. Kaka Bagyenda, from appearing as a witness before the same committee.
