NUP sacks former LOP Mpuuga from his current position as parliamentary commissioner replacing him with Mityana municipality legislator

By Our Reporter

The National Executive Committee of the National Unity Platform (NUP) chaired by it’s acting president Dr. Lina Zedriga Waru, Saturday sat to consider the response by Hon. Mathias Mpuuga to the accusation that he engaged in acts of corruption and abuse of office when he, together with the NRM Parliamentary Commissioners irregularly allocated themselves 1.7 billion shillings as “Service Awards” in a meeting chaired by Ms. Anita Among.

According to the statement released after the meeting, although he (Mpuuga) responded to NEC’s request to show cause why he should not be recalled from the Parliamentary Commission, he did not provide any satisfactory explanation for engaging in this grave action which goes against the mission, values and objectives of the Party. In particular, he did not make any attempt to respond to the specific accusations leveled against him.

They added that in same light of this, NEC has resolved to recall Hon. Mathias Mpuuga from the Parliamentary Commission on account of corruption, dishonesty and abuse of office, and to notify Parliament of the same. NEC further resolved to nominate Hon. Zaake Francis Butebi as Parliamentary Commissioner.

His nomination was informed by the fact that he was illegally removed from that role in March 2022 in order to pave way for the grand corrupt and questionable dealings of the Parliamentary Commission that have now come to light. In the coming days, the Party will initiate the relevant processes to effect this resolution.
