This week, Uganda’s Speaker of Parliament Anitah Among came out to castigate parliamentary committees which she deemed to have performed dismally.
The speaker particularly, pointed out the Joel Ssenyonyi led COSASE committee in the most denigrating manner heaping blame on it. In her own words, the Speaker stated “shame on you COSASE”. The committee Chairperson Joel Ssenyonyi, has now come out to lay facts on the ground with comparison of his COSASE performance as opposed to the one that was led by the Speaker for three years in the 10th parliament.
FACTS:Joel Ssenyonyi says: According to records in Parliament, COSASE of the last Parliament for a whole 5 years inquired into only 9 (nine) Auditor General reports BOU, KCCA,REA, NITA, NCS, NAADS, UEDCL, UCC and Parliament Commission. By the way Anita Among was in charge of that COSASE for about 3 years.
Meanwhile, our COSASE in just 1 year has so far produced 5 reports CAA, Uganda Railways, Uganda Land Commission, UNRA and Uganda Airlines). This year we’re going after more entities.
When you compare only 9 reports in 5 years, to our 5 reports in one year, everyone now knows who is lazy and full of shame!. Ssenyonyi asserted
