Members of parliament have this morning snubbed the House sitting.
The house had convened to discuss and pass the Anti-money laundering Bill 2009 which intends to criminalize money laundering, to provide for specific measures to detect and deter money laundering, to facilitate the investigation and prosecution of money laundering offences that include establishing record keeping and customer due diligence requirements for financial services providers and other persons that engage in business, professions or activities that are susceptible to being used for money laundering.
The deputy speaker of parliament Jacob Oulanyah started the meeting with less than 20 members out of 380 legislators in parliament.Mr Oulanya couldn’t adjourn the proceedings despite the absence of MPs.
Yesterday while adjourning the house, the speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga informed members about today’s seating which members snubbed.
Other members resorted to seat in the parliament canteen as business proceeds in the House.
Some members said that they don’t feel comfortable when the deputy speaker is presiding the House adding that they prefer Kadaga.
