“I can’t drop what I have started given what happened at KCCA,” Chemaswet stressed.
Chemaswet told the caucus that “everybody watched on TV. It was a sorrowful event and can’t go unpunished”.
The caucus, poorly attended, missed by president Museveni and instead chaired by the deputy NRM chief whip and Ndorwa West MP, David Bahati, resolved that Tumwebaze make a statement in the house and afterwards, members exhaustively discuss it.
A source that attended the meeting but asked to remain anonymous, says that government was defensive and maintained that, “what the minister did was legal and was his duty as the minister for Kampala”.
However, Chimpreports learnt that many members were reluctant to toe the government line and kept murmuring that the KCCA saga was uncalled for and has tainted the party image.
Some members also accused the Executive Director of KCCA, Jennifer Musisi, of acting like a politician instead of working like a technocrat and expressing incessant arrogance in suppressing the political wing of KCCA.
The meeting which was also attended by the vice president, Edward Ssekandi, asked the members who have prepared a censure motion against Frank Tumwebaze to drop it and wait for his statement in the whole house in the afternoon.
The Mbarara Municipality MP, Medard Bitecherezo, withdrew and said he had a personal difference with Frank whom he says “one time tried to kidnap his children” and he wanted to pay back but has forgiven him in the committee.
