The speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga has directed the minister of security General Elly Tumwine to vacate the nnomo gallery and also pay the rent amounting to 1.6 billion shillings owed to him by the national cultural center which he failed to pay rent since 1998.
This was during the approval of the report by the committee on Gender on the Ministerial Policy Statement of the Ministry of gender for the financial year 2018/2019.
This is after the chairperson of the committee on gender Ndeezi Alex informed parliament that creations limited a private company by Gen. Elly Tumwnine has been occupying Nnomo gallery but has not been paying rent since 1998.
Ndeezi said that what is disheartening is that every financial year funds are allocated for the maintenance of this premises and in the FY 2018/19,44.6 million shillings has been set aside for the same purpose.
The Committee strongly recommended that; Creations Limited immediately pays rent arrears amounting to 7.62 billion shillings before the end of 2018 and vacates Nommo Gallery.
This prompted the speaker of parliament Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga to direct Tumwine to pay the rent and also vacate the public facility saying that if this kind of impunity is not checked someone one day will take over parliament and claim its their house just because he fought in the bush.
