KAMPALA- The leadership of Democratic Party has summoned Mukono Municipality MP and the vice chairman of the party in charge of Buganda Betty Nambooze to appear before the organisation’s disciplinary committee on April 20.
Addressing the party’s weekly press conference at the party headquarters in Kampala on Tuesday, the party deputy spokesperson, Mr Mufumbira Waiswa said Ms Nambooze is expected to answer for her indiscipline when she went ahead to try to convene a conference at Nsambya Sharing Hall, which the party president Norbert Mao had stopped.
However, Ms Nambooze laughed off the summons saying she did not have a genuine reply to Daily Monitor because she had not yet been summoned.
“But even if I was summoned, I would not attend because the complainants Mao and Fred Mukasa Mbidde, his deputy, who used ‘their fellow hooligan’ [Waiswa], can’t be the complainant and the judge at the same time in any case against me,” she said.
She added that under the party procedure, for someone to be summoned, the National Executive Committee (NEC) must sit and decide to constitute itself into a disciplinary committee and send the decision to the National Council (NC), both of which she said have not convened yet.
