Opposition MPs told to continue attending committee sittings as boycott continues

The Shadow Cabinet has vowed to continue with the boycott of Parliamentary sittings until the government is ready to comprehensively respond to their demands on safeguarding human rights in the country.

The cabinet chaired by the Leader of the Opposition in Parliament (LOP) Mathias Mpuuga on Tuesday also urged Opposition MPs to continue attending Parliamentary Committee meetings and defy any chairpersons who attempt to chase them out of the Committees.

Mpuuga cautioned political party leaders against issuing directives to their respective MPs that are intended to undermine the Opposition cause.

This follows a directive by FDC and DP to its members to end the boycott and return to the House.

Mpuuga said that the danger in such moves is the possibility of causing internal rifts.

The DP whip, Peter Okot informed the Shadow Cabinet that the DP caucus is already in disagreement with the majority of its members opting to move against the guidance from the DP headquarters.
