Dr. Sam Lyomoki has been named the chairperson Health committee by the NRM caucus meeting which President Museveni called yesterday at the Entebbe statehouse.

Iriama Margaret is the deputy of the health committee. The education committee is chaired by Sylvia Ssinabulya as Jacob Opolot becomes her deputy.

Two committees were divided into the health and education committee under the social services committee. Helen Kawesa, the Parliament spokesperson, said the caucus agreed upon the committee chairpersons in the recent amendments to the Parliamentary rules of procedure.

Kadogo Veronica and Mwebaza Sarah are chairperson and deputy respectively to the committee of East African Community, while Jovah Kamateeka chairs the Human Rights committee.

The opposition chairs all accountability committees in Parliament, while the remaining sensational and standing committees are chaired by legislators affiliated to the ruling party.
