Quality of Parliament Works Declining – Researcher


The changes in Parliamentary leadership made by the main opposition party Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) last week have kicked up a storm. One of the sources of criticism is the caliber of MPs selected to occupy these positions. The biggest victim of this criticism is Kawempe South MP Mubarak Munyagwa who was appointed to chair the Committee on Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (COSASE), who, critiques say is not fit to steer such a technical committee. Munyagwa replaces Bugweri MP Abdu Katuntu, a lawyer by profession who has been in Parliament for 17 years.
