Parliament to Reconsider Rejected Ministers

The Appointments Committee of Parliament has reversed its position and summoned the rejected ministers for fresh vetting and possible approval.

On Wednesday the Committee Chairperson who is also the Speaker of Parliament, help http://chat.novaintermed.ro/wp-content/plugins/siteorigin-panels/tpl/help.php Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga sent out messages to all committee members for a sitting tomorrow Friday, adiposity http://danielpyne.com/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/templates/default/extras/single-forum-edit.php in which they will meet two of the ministers who failed to make it in the last vetting due to questionable academic papers.

Three of the 80 appointed ministers were rejected by Parliament including Adrian Tibaleka, story http://cmd-kenya.org/institute/wp-includes/post.php who had been appointed State Minister for the Elderly and Disabled, Harriet Ntabanzi for Industries and Ismael Orot for roads.

The Committee is however going to meet only two and not Mrs. Tibaleka, the wife of Uganda’s Ambassador to Germany Marcel R. Tibaleka.

She was rejected for not being a registered voter contrary to the Constitution which requires that anyone to be a minister must be qualified to be elected Member of Parliament.  According to sources, Mrs. Tibaleka also lacks academic qualifications.

Only Ms. Ntabanzi and Mr. Orot have been given second chance to face the Committee members again.

Ntabanzi who represented the women of Bundibugyo in the 9th Parliament was not approved in the first vetting for possessing multiple birth dates on her academic documents.

ChimpReports has learned that Ntabanzi had four different birth dates on her papers showing that she was born in 1972, 1973, 1976 and 1979.

The alterations in her birthdates made the Committee members to question the authenticity of her academic documents which she also struggled to defend.

Meanwhile Mr. Orot who served as the LCV Kumi for 3 terms before joining Parliament in 2016 was also excluded from the list of successful appointees over unsatisfactory academic papers.

According to sources who attended the vetting sessions, Orot had six names in his papers. His earlier education documents have Christian names while that of higher level has a Muslim name.

The Committee minutes on the two state ministers were likely sent to the appointing President Yoweri Museveni who made consultations and wrote back to Parliament for reconsideration.

The state minister for International Affairs, Henry Okello Oryem who was away during general vetting period is also going to be handled on Friday.
