Speaker Kadaga Questions Gen Otafiire Over Land Grabbing
The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, has attacked the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Major General Kahinda Otafiire and Muhangi for causing instability at the government stock farm in Njeru.
“I have heard complaints from Agric, and they say there is a man called Muhangi, the man who broke down a building in Jinja, unfortunately, every time this issue is raised, the name of Honourable Otafiire is mentioned,” says Kadaga.
She says they want to know the relationship between Muhangi and Hon Otafiire, and who is Muhangi that cannot be touched. After he broke a building and threw away 40 families in Jinja and now has taken over a government stock farm and yet everybody is quiet.
This prompted reactions from the Opposition chief whip, Ssemujju Nganda who demanded explanations from the minister for his involvement in the acquisition of the government’s land in Njeru.
However, the minister’s reply that was meant to offer clarity, has left the legislators angry and caused a serious debate on the floor of parliament.
