The closed door Caucus whose agenda was not given to members had only one item that is, the cabinet also enters books of records in paying tribute to the anti-apartheid icon and the first black South African president.

The meeting which took place at parliament in the president’s office side, debated the way through which the cabinet members can also be included in the tribute resolution which was already passed last Tuesday.

Chimpreports has exclusively learnt that the government side lost and conceded that they can be given chance to reverse Tuesday’s sitting so as to move the motion.

They agreed to just make a statement to mourn Mandela.

In an exclusive interview with Chimpreports just after meeting, the government Chief Whip, Justine Kasule Lumumba who took over the charring from her deputy Bahati, confirmed that they “have concluded that the leader of government business in parliament and also Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi, makes a statement on the floor and members of the cabinet react”.

“Yes, we have resolved to go with the Speaker’s view that we only make a statement but not a motion as we demanded earlier. The PM is going to make a statement and we (Cabinet) react for one hour,” Lumumba told Chimpreports.

Sources have notified us that Mbabazi briefed the Caucus on how he met the Speaker early in the morning and she agreed to allow him make a statement.

All members unanimously agreed with the speaker’s position and that other members from both sides of the House who missed to make a contribution that day, do so today.

It is now up to the Speaker to amend the order paper for Thursday and accommodate the caucus resolution.
