Majority members of Parliament Appointments Committee voted in favour of Aronda after listening to law experts.

Among the legal experts who made presentations include the Constitutional Lawyer, Sempebwa.

According to close sources in the committee, the opposition and independents failed to reach a common ground and each wanted their side to be taken.

The Speaker of Parliament, Hon. Rebecca Kadaga who was chairing the committee decided to ask members to adopt the primary school style and by show of hands decide for the day.

Among the 17 eligible voters, 13 members said yes, meaning there is no problem with Aronda becoming minister before resigning from the army.

However, six MPs rejected the appointment and insisted that Aronda must first retire from the army. Shadow Attorney General Abdu Katuntu argued that the move was unconstitutional.

The significant 13 votes out of 20 took the day and the former Chief of Defense Forces who is still a serving army officer is now the Minister of Internal Affairs.

However it is likely far from over yet, members who rejected the appointment led by the Rubaga South Mp, Ken Lukyamuzi said they are going to the Constitutional Court to challenge the appointment.

“This is openly unconstitutional and we are going to argue it in the constitutional court very soon. We cannot let this abuse happen in our country, it is clear and we are going to prove,” Lukyamuzi said.
