NRM MPs worried about pressure from their party on Parliamentary issues

The NRM members of parliament have expressed divergent views over the ongoing NRM caucus meeting.

This followed reports that among things to be discussed were the Dura Cement report tabled before parliament last week.

Some members of parliament have expressed fears that this caucus meeting could be aimed at protecting the people implicated in the report.

The meeting called by the president at State house Entebbe is seen as an attempt by the party leadership to agree on a common position before the Bill is brought to parliament this week to avoid a repeat of the chaos that erupted during the previous debates.

Dr. Chris Baryomunsi and Stephen Tashobya told journalists at parliament that it is wrong for the party to call MPs to take a position on a matter which some MPs had already decided on in the committee stages.

The caucus members are also expected to discuss the Dura Cement Report.

This comes at a time when MPs are expected to begin debate on the highly-billed report about the cancellation of a 43.5bn mining lease.
