New Kyadondo East MP Robert Kagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has been appointed to the parliamentary committee on Presidential Affairs.
The Presidential Affairs Committee oversees the operations of the Office of the President, including State House and Kampala Capital City Authority among others.
Mr Kyagulanyi took oath on Tuesday to join the 10th Parliament. At the time the House’s sessional committees were undergoing review for change of leadership.
The Presidential Affairs Committee will now be chaired by Adjumani District Woman MP Jesca Ababiku who takes on from Col (rtd) Fred Mwesigye (NRM-Nyabushozi County).
.Among other changes, Aringa North MP, Godfrey Onzima takes over from Igara County West’s Raphael Magyezi as the Chairperson for the Committee on Public Service and Local Governments, while Luwero District Woman MP Eng Lilian Nakatte will head the Committee on Infrastructure, replacing Eng Denis Sabiiti of Rubanda West.
Last week, Parliament witnessed bitter reactions from opposition lawmakers who objected to the appointment of a member of the Uganda People’s Congress by the Government Chief Whip, Ruth Nankabirwa.
Ms Nankabirwa had designated Mr Maxwell Akora (Maruzi County) as Vice Chairperson to the Committee on Information and Communication Technology.
Despite the uproar, however, fresh designation by the opposition left Mr Akora to the same committee and appointed Vice Chairperson..
