National Resistance Movement members are today meeting President Museveni over the marriage and divorce Bill .The president made the decision to meet the NRM legislators over the contentious marriage bill during the National Women’s day celebrations in Nakasongola district on Friday.
While addressing the audience at Wabinyonyi Sports Grounds ,President Yoweri Museveni cautioned Parliament against rushing the Marriage and Divorce Bill, saying the country risks getting into problems, if the Bill is carelessly passed.
Museveni said the Bill ought to be handled with extra care and discussed fully, before it is passed into law. He promised to convene an NRM Parliament caucus Today , Monday to examine some of the contentious clauses in the Bill.
“The Bill was there in the previous Parliament, but because we had not caucused on it, we postponed it. Now, it is being discussed in Parliament without a caucus scrutinising it first,” he said.
