This comes after press reports recently revealed published pictures of some ministers that including the Uganda Prime Minister Prof. Apollo Nsibambi sleeping while the president was delivering the speech.

Matembe who is also the Former Minster of Ethics and Integrity and Mbarara district women Member of Parliament told the press in Kampala today that the ministers were right to sleep because the president’s speech was too long.

She added that she wasn’t surprised by the sleeping ministers because the president bored them with his same old things.

Matembe also indicated that a few years ago the president appealed to Ugandans to vote for people to Parliament regardless of whether they sleep in parliament or not provided they wake up to vote for the National Resistance Movement.

She says the president’s remark shows that Uganda leaders followed the president’s appeal and Museveni should not get irritated by the sleeping ministers.
