[Monitor] Timothly Kalyegira's column in the Sunday Monitor of June 18, drew my attention to the recently released 'Report to the Ugandan People' by the US Embassy in Kampala. Whereas Kalyegira did not have many charitable things to say about Ugandans (the intended receipts of the report), I agree with him that the report was well structured, clutterless, incisive and colourful. It makes for easy reading and understanding of what the US government supported programmes are up to in Uganda.

Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini has reversed the suspension of UPND Namwala Member of Parliament Moono Lubezhi who was suspended together with 47 other opposition party lawmakers for boycotting the President’s state of the nation address. This is after it was established that Lubezhi had obtained permission from the Government Chief Whip for leave of absence from the house to enable her attend to her court case on 16th and 17th March, 2017. Ruling on a point of order raised by UPND Mbabala Member of Parliament Ephraim Belemu on whether the house was in order to have passed a resolution to suspend the 48 UPND Members of Parliament based on defective facts and which appear to victimize UPND members on account of affiliation to the party and not on facts, Dr Matibini noted that the Namwala lawmaker was expressly granted authority to be absent from the house by the Chief Whip. He says therefore Lubezhi’s inclusion on the list of the 48 UPND suspended Members of Parliament was both inadvertent and regrettable. Dr Matibini has since amended his ruling of 13th June, 2017 to reflect the fact that the Namwala lawmaker was absent from the house with permission.
