You Can’t Vote Someone Who Changes Colour Like A Chameleon: Determined Oulanyah ‘Undresses’ Kadaga With New Tactics

You Can’t Vote Someone Who Changes Colour Like A Chameleon: Determined Oulanyah ‘Undresses’ Kadaga With New Tactics

The former deputy speaker of parliament, Jacob Oulanyah has lashed at the outgoing speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga saying she keeps changing coulors like a chameleon and there fore she sould not be voted back to the parliament’s top seat.

Speaking on Friday, Oulanyah insisted that there was a decision made by the party’s top organ in 2016 regarding the speakership race where Kadaga was supposed to hand over to her deputy Oulanayah however Kadaga dismissed the saying there has never been such an agreement.

“I was not comfortable with the decision but respected it. Immediately after that, the person I stood down for(Kadaga) went round and campaigned for somebody else to be deputy speaker. I won by the majority and up to now, I respect CEC and caucus decisions,” Oulanyah said.

According to Oulanyah, it is high time the 11th parliament got a speaker who will stick to their word and not one who changes colour like a chameleon.

“I am not a person who says this and does another. I have expressed interest( in becoming speaker) and anybody who had doubt now knows,” Oulanyah who was being flanked by several MPs said.

Oulanyah’s camp openly says he is the rightful candidate for the party in the speakership race after an alleged 2016 agreement that he lets Kadaga complete her 10-year tenure as speaker of parliament and he takes over from there.

On the other hand, Oulanyah noted that the parliament image has to be restored after being tarnished by outgoing speaker[Kadaga]

“We want to build trust with the public that when you go to your constituency, people will stand and say a Member of Parliament has come. We want to change the way we do things,” Oulanyah said.

The Omoro County MP was on Friday morning speaking at the NRM electoral commission headquarters in Kyadondo after expressing his interest to challenge the speakership job in the 11th Parliament.

“We don’t want the next five years to be like the previous five years of parliament. We want history to be rewritten and the story of parliament to be retold.”

He noted that in the past five years, the public has resented parliament but noted it is high time this is reversed.

“We want to restore confidence for the people in the institution where they send their representatives.”

There has been a stalemate for a long time on the choice of candidate in the speakership race for the ruling NRM party.

Oulanyah’s camp openly says he is the rightful candidate for the party in the speakership race after an alleged 2016 agreement that he lets Kadaga complete her 10-year tenure as speaker of parliament and he takes over from there.

However, on the other side, Kadaga has vehemently dismissed the same, saying there has never been such an agreement.
