The Speaker of the Parliament of Uganda Rt. Hon. Jacob Oulanyah has blasted Members of the 11th Parliament for making unresearched and baseless submissions.
The Speaker maintains that debates in the Parliament must be evidence based and legislators without facts will not be allowed to debate on the floor of Parliament.
While overseeing his maiden sitting as speaker, Oulanyah said it is unfortunate that some MP’s waste parliament’s time with half baked submissions which he termed as a disservice to the electorate.
Oulanyah also took time to introduce the new Clerk to Parliament, former Defense Minister Hon. Adolf Mwesige to the House.
