The Nakawa West Member of Parliament who also doubles as the Chairperson of the Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises (COSASE), Joel Ssenyonyi, has said the Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, wants him censured from the Committee.

Ssenyonyi made the revelation today morning in tweet that has since got a lot of attention from the public.

I am told Speaker Anita Among called some of my committee members to her office and asked them to start a censure motion against me for indiscipline and disobeying her orders,” he tweeted, adding, “during the Uganda Airlines inquiry, she wrote to me a letter “guiding” me to lock the media out.”

His revelation comes at the background of Among’s criticism of the Committee saying it had under performed.

According to Among, out of the 111 reports that were supposed to be produced by COSASE, only 5 were presented before the House making it the worst performing Committee.

While responding to her, Ssenyonyi said COSASE (headed by someone else) in the last 5 years had only produced 9 reports which according to him should not be compared to the 5 reports the Committee he is leading has produced in one year.

When you compare only 9 reports in 5 years to our 5 reports in in one year, then you know who is lazy. By the way Among led that Committee for like 3 years,” he responded.

Among directed that all the remaining reports will be adopted by the House meaning COSASE will have no business until new reports from the auditor general are presented.
