Speaker of Parliament Anita Among has castigated Rubabo County MP, Naboth Namanya for publicly attacking the Minister for Science, Innovation and Technology, Dr. Monica Musenero yesterday in a television video that has since gone viral.
Ms Among, who cautioned MPs on their conduct and decorum, especially while treating or relating with each other as Members of Parliament, said she watched with disappointment a television clip in which Hon Naboth Namanya, the Member for Rubabo County publicly attacked the Honourable Minister for Science, Innovation, and Technology, Dr. Monica Musenero.
In the video clip, Mr Namanya is seen verbally attacking Dr Musenero for allegedly mismanaging funds meant for Presidential Scientific Initiative on Epidemics (PRESIDE).
However, while presiding over plenary on Wednesday morning, Ms Among said the MP’s behavior was ‘despicable and unacceptable.’
Parliament on Tuesday gave the Inspectorate of Government three months to further investigate allegations of financial mismanagement against Dr Musenero.
