On Tenterhooks: Speaker Among Pleads With CID To Summon Corrupt MPs Through Her


The Speaker, Anita Among has directed the Police to summon Members of Parliament under investigation, through her.

Among said that she was aware that some MPs are under arrest and are undergoing investigation.
“These investigations are part of the evidence-gathering process. Just as we believe in evidence-based legislation, we support evidence-based prosecution,” she said

She however, condemned the manner in which Busiki County MP, Hon. Paul Akamba was re-arrested outside the Anti -Corruption court on Friday, 14 June 2024.
“This should be within the confines of the law at all stages and times. I have directed the police to summon you (MPs) through me,” she emphasized.

Among said that Parliament will receive a report on the investigations, especially on the brutal arrest of the MPs.

The Leader of the Opposition, Hon. Joel Ssenyonyi reiterated the need for the police and investigating bodies to uphold the rule of law during arrests.
“We are glad that the fight against graft is taking shape. It’s been five days since Hon. Paul Akamba was arrested but the police and his lawyers do not know where he is,” Ssenyonyi said.

Akamba was arrested alongside Bunyole East MP, Hon. Yusuf Mutembuli and Lwengo District Woman MP, Hon. Cissy Namujju on alleged corruption charges and have since been charged in court.
