MPs who lost Shun Life After Parliament Function.

By Jimmy Twist 


Yesterday Parliament organized one of the two seminars to orient MPs on opportunities and challenges facing them after May. 

This was the first time in history for parliament to organize a session for the outgoing members of parliament to orient them on life after parliament. Over 200 MPs who did not make it to the 11th parliament only a few of them appeared and are left with only a fortnight to exit the August House. 

The speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga opened a two-day session today and encouraged outgoing legislators that life after parliament is hard but possible. 

Several facilitators who are mostly former MPs preached to MPs the message of hope and struggled to arrest their fears. Sarah Kiyingi the former Woman MP of Rakai District and former minister of internal affairs advised MPs not to feel shy to adjust to the lifestyle which fits their pockets.

She further cautioned MPs against rushing into litigations without thinking much of their decisions. MPs confessed that after loss, lawyers approach them and entice them to challenge their defeat in courts of law which lands them in trouble or paying costs after a loss.

Emanuel Sempala Kigozi the outgoing MP for Makindye Ssaabagabo Municipality says he has already gone back to his profession of teaching, and life is getting better. He encouraged fellow MPs to follow suit and added that it’s not easy to copy up.

Outgoing MPs who attended the session gained many skills and confessed that most of their fears have been allayed while the Mp for Kisoro Minicipalty Sam Bibyesho revealed that he is worried about how they will be fitting into the society and they are already campaigning for their return and there is no life after parliament and those who saying so are just giving them false hopes  

The seminar was organized by the Institute of parliamentary studies chaired by the Dokolo district woman MP Cecilia Ogwal. She recommended parliament consider giving medical insurance to former MPs to guarantee the smooth and decent transitions
