The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, has threatened to sue media houses if they dare report that she is very sick.
A picture is making rounds on social media claiming that Kadaga is extremely sick with some sections even alleging her “untimely death”.
While collecting nomination forms from NRM headquarters recently, Kadaga disclosed that she was sick but said she had a problem with the leg.
She has been away from parliament leaving deputy speaker, Jacob Oulanyah, to preside over plenary.
Kadaga says she only suffered a strain of the leg and has been unable to resume work at parliament but has been working from her home, on phone.
“My foot is even still branded. I find difficulty hoping in the chamber. I have been working from my house.”
The speaker says most of her files have been worked hence no need for alarm from anyone.
She threatened to sue media houses for reporting that she is critically ill.
On Monday morning, Kadaga even received the Inspector General of Government, Justice Mulyagonja Irene, who handed over the Investigated report on Kyambogo University to her.
Some of the problems that are causing all the wrangles in the University according to the report is Institutional Culture, Mismanagement of Institution funds, Corruption though IGG said that they are still investigating and lack of enough staff, according to the IGG.
“For example the University do not have a full time professor and this has led the university not to grow according to its expectation,” she told the Speaker who promised to follow up on the issue very carefully.
Kadaga also took her time to launch an attack on Presidential Aspirant, Amama Mbabazi, who is reportedly influencing Busoga politics in a move to unseat her.
Kadaga is the Woman Member of Parliament for Kamuli in Busoga region.
She says Amama is busy sponsoring opponents to take her office.
“People are unnecessarily influencing events in areas where they don’t own land. They are trying to influence who represents those people. There are members who are trying to plant people of their choice.”
She continued: “If you are a son-in-law, or own land or have an investment in Busoga, then you can let us know but you are coming from Kanungu and trying to plant saboteurs and soldiers here? I will continue talking about it.”
Kadaga and Mbabazi’s standoff is quite old and has been ongoing even when Amama was still NRM Secretary General and the country’s Prime Minister.
