Yumbe District Woman Member of Parliament, Huda Oleru, has joined her North Mawokota Mpigi District Woman MP, Amelia Kyambadde, famed for crying “rivers of Babylon” in public.
While Amelia shed tears for “poor services” in her constituency, MP Oleru broken down and sobbed over religious matters.
The Muslim Oleru was attending service on Easter Sunday at Yumbe Catholic Parish to mark the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
According to Daily Monitor, “when Christians began singing, the legislator began shedding tears uncontrollably”.
A one Naftali Olema, told the newspaper that “tears were just flowing from Oleru’s eyes” as if she had been possessed by the Holy Spirit.
She was to be heard after the mass saying: “I am not happy with the way some religious leaders preach in Yumbe because some end up criticising other religions instead of delivering the right message to the believers”.
She said the trend was meant to create disunity among Christians and Muslims.
Oleru becomes a third official to cry in public.
Back in February 2015, the former Principle Private Secretary to President Yoweri Museveni and now Minister for Trade, Industry and Cooperatives, Amelia Kyambadde, broke down and cried at Namabo primary school in Kafumu Sub County in Mpigi district.
Kyambadde was allegedly shocked by the alarming health services on the ground in spite of the efforts to improve the status quo.
The minister broke down and cried while addressing a Californian delegation led by an 11 year-old donor who had delivered donation to a primary school in Mpigi town council.
Last month, retired Supreme Court judge, Prof George Kanyeihamba, treated onlookers at Constitutional Court to a “flood of tears” (call them rivers of Babylon) after the court allegedly declined to receive his clients’ petition.
He was representing Western Youth Member of Parliament, Gerald Karuhanga, who wanted to file a petition seeking the removal of the deputy Chief Justice, Steven Kavuma.
