The President General of the Conservative Party, John Ken Lukyamuzi prepares to stage a peaceful demonstration any time at Parliament following the House’s refusal to pay him 43 million shillings.
Parliament deflected responsibility for the payment of emoluments in compensation to Lukyamuzi who court ruled recently was illegally removed from Parliament in 2005.
The Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga announced on June 29th during a plenary that Uganda Parliament had written to the Solicitor General inquiring who should pay Lukyamuzi’s emoluments of 43 million shillings.
Lukyamuzi says the Deputy Speaker is playing delaying tactics so the need to stage a demonstration at Parliament to awaken her up. The 43 million shillings is compensation for the five months Lukyamuzi missed when he was illegally removed from Parliament.
The Supreme Court ruled that the former Inspector General of Government, Faith Mwondha wrongfully dismissed Lukyamuzi for failing to declare his wealth and ordered that all his emoluments for the five months be paid. The court however did not put it clear who should bear the cost of the compensation. Lukyamuzi sued Parliament, the Electoral Commission and the Inspector General of Government.
