The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon Rebecca Kadaga has advised the Commissioner General of the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) together with other officials with whom she shared the six billion oil case bonus to prepare to provide legislators with ‘explanations.’

The development was revealed by Parliament’s Director, Communications and Public Affairs, Chris Obore in a statement released on Monday.

“The House resumes tomorrow after recess and indeed a section of MPs have prepared a motion to be tabled in the House,” Obore wrote.

He confirmed that Akol together with other URA officials made an impromptu visit to the speaker who assured them that the motion would be tabled.

“It’s true that the Commissioner General of Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Ms Doris Akol visited parliament and met the Speaker. However, she had no prior appointment with the Speaker,” Obore’s statement reads.

According to Obore, Akol and her team came along with the 1st Deputy Prime Minister, Gen. Moses Ali and the Government Chief Whip Hon. Ruth Nankabirwa.

“The Speaker and the Prime Minister discussed parliament business. When the matter of the now controversial oil bonus payments christened ‘presidential handshake’ came up, the Speaker said the motion prepared by some Members of Parliament would be tabled.”

“She advised the Minister concerned to prepare to provide MPs with explanations,” Obore concluded.

The news however, comes in the wake of a court order by the Deputy Chief Justice, Steven Kavuma, barring parliament and any other authorities or individuals from investigating, inquiring or questioning into the case.

It is still unclear whether or not Parliament has been served with the restraining order.
