A section of MPs have expressed dissatisfaction over the president Museveni’s decision to endorse minister of Foreign Affairs Sam Kutesa’s
candidature from East African Community as president general of the United Nations.
MPs who included Barnabus Tinkasimiire, Gerald Karuhanga, Theodore Sekikubo and Medard Segona say that Kutesa has been involved in so many dirty deals and his name is tainted citing the censure in the sixth Parliament, Chogm and Oil scandals among others.
The MPs proposed that instead, either Minister of ICT Ruhakana Rugunda, Bank of Uganda deputy Governor Louis Kasekende or any other
person with repute should be endorsed for presidency but not Kutesa.
The group also vowed to petition the UN against Kutesa’s endorsement as the final candidate for that position.
They also said that it’s unfortunate for the president to select the countries candidate on such high level position without informing parliament.
