Speaker Oulanya Directs Clerk To parliament to set up Separate Tent for MP’s who didn’t get covid 19 results.

Parliament. 

Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah has directed the clerk to parliament to set up a special tent for members of parliament who have not received their COVID-19 results to enable them to follow parliament proceedings.

This is after the Jinja South Division West Member of Parliament in Jinja city Batuwa Timothy Lusala raised a procedural matter on the continued blocking of members of parliament to access Kololo ceremonial grounds yet it had been declared as a parliament.

Batuwa informed the speaker it’s not fair to deny members of parliament access to parliament just for lack of negative COVID-19 results.

Batuwa was supported by other members of parliament who asked the speaker that a special tent should be set up for members who are yet to receive their COVID-19 tests like it was done during the election of the speaker and deputy speaker instead of keeping them out.

The speaker Jacob Oulanyah informed MPs that this is a difficult time because of the pandemic and we need to ensure the safety of members of parliament but informed them that arrangements are going to be made to ensure a special tent is set up for them.
