Peter Nyombi noted that it was provided for in the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda that he acts on behalf of government to which the parliament is part.
“Article 119 of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda provides that there shall be an Attorney General appointed by the President with the approval of Parliament and shall be the principal legal advisor of government and therefore civil proceedings by or against government shall be instituted by or against the Attorney General,” stressed Nyombi.
He further condemned the means used by the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga to express her views about the NRM rebel MPs.
“The way she expressed her opinions was insane. If she was aggrieved by my opinion she would have gone to court and challenged me,” noted Nyombi.
Nyombi further noted that the Speaker does not want to talk to him nor listen to his advice. He added that the speaker can only lobby parliament for the amendment of the constitution before she gets lawyers to represent parliament.
This came barely days after the Speaker ruled out the possibility of the Attorney General representing parliament in the cases of the embattled NRM rebel MPs and declared that parliament has qualified lawyers to represent it other than the Attorney General.
