“Although he responded to NEC’s request to show cause why he should not be recalled from the Parliamentary Commission, he did not provide any satisfactory explanation for engaging in this grave action which goes against the mission, values and objectives of
The Party.” Stated Dr. Lina Zedriga Waru
Acting Party President (NUP) in an official statement released on Friday afternoon

She added that In particular, Mpuuga did not make any attempt to respond to the specific accusations leveled against him as he had been asked to do.

That in light of the above, the NEC has resolved to recall Hon. Mathias Mpuuga from the Parliamentary Commission on account of corruption, dishonesty and abuse of office, and to notify Parliament of the same.

“NEC further resolved to nominate Hon. Zaake Francis Butebi as Parliamentary
Commissioner. His nomination was informed by the fact that he was illegally removed from that role in March 2022 in order to pave way for the grand corrupt and questionable dealings of the Parliamentary Commission that have now come to light.”

For the past weeks, the issue of Parliamentary Exhibition have dominated various social media platforms as Citizens seek accountability on how funds are being spent by the Parliament of Uganda.

In the process, evidence came up that , Parliamentary Commissioners and Hon Mathius Mpuuga , the them Leader of Opposition shared among themselves 1.7 billion shillings in what they referred to as “Service Awards” in a meeting which was said to have been chaired by the Speaker of Parliament.

NUP described this as corruption and abuse of office and thus exerted pressure for Hon Mpuuga to refund the money because such acts where against the Party constitution.

Mpuuga defended himself that this was done in accordance with the laws of Parliament , secondly he had not yet received the money which many of the party members failed to believe upto now.
