Nabilah Wants Opposition MPs To Forego Salaries

cheapest geneva; font-size: small;”>Nabillah said boycotting sittings alone will not “cause any change” and that MPs must also stay away from monthly salaries.

viagra approved geneva;”>In an exclusive interview with Chimpreports on Tuesday, troche Nabilah said boycotting the Parliamentary sittings is “not enough and cannot make the opposition achieve its goal of causing change.”

“Just boycotting sessions cannot make us a powerful force in the house because nothing will change and we shall remain behind,” Nabilah said.

When pressed what should be done to effect the change she wants to see, Nabilah strongly changed the tone: “We should get out of this house and boycott salaries for us to be regarded serious and genuine in our struggle for change.”

Opposition last week walked out of the House to protest the appointment of Gen Aronda Nyakairima. They said NRM MPs on the Appointments Committee illegally endorsed the appointment without Aronda retiring from the army as required by law.

Speaker Rebecca Kadaga’s decision not to allow a plenary debate on the appointment of Aronda has since deepened the rift between opposition and the ruling party.

Led by leader of opposition in Parliament, Nandala Mafabi, the group vowed to boycott the house for 3 consecutive sittings.

They did not turn up on Tuesday for the plenary session.

Asked about Nabilah’s proposal, Mafabi welcomed the move, saying if members were to agree he would support the move.

“Yes that comment from Nabillah is ok and me I am ready to welcome it so long as she presents it to us and members agree,” Mafabi said on phone.

It remains unclear if opposition would take such a step considering that many are choking on debts.

The opposition has on several occasions walked out of Parliament and nothing tangible has so far be achieved in the House where the ruling National Resistance Movement party boasts a significant numerical strength and legislative power.
