Although several items were lined up for debate on Thursday including the debate on the 1.7 trillion loan for oil roads, issues of human and wildlife conflict and motions to alter administrative boundaries of districts to cater for the new cities, plenary was pushed to 3rd December.    

According to a communication to members of Parliament and the public, although the Speaker adjourned the house to Thursday today, the sitting has been rescheduled to Tuesday 3rd December to allow the MPs and staff attend their SACCO training.    

“Please note that the plenary sitting meant for today, Thursday, 28th Nov. 2019 has been rescheduled to Tuesday, 3rd December 2019 to enable MPs and staff attend Parliamentary SACCO training workshop.” The message says.

The MPs and staff will be trained on financial matters and savings among others.      Masaka Municipality MP Mathias Mpuuga says he had an issue to present in the floor of the house, but unfortunately, this has to be postponed to next week.

 “I am one person who hates those postponement because it then affects the business of the house, but I cannot comment on the reason, because I only received the postponement message but am yet to know exactly why plenary was cancelled” Mpuuga said.

Mwatekamwa Gaffa the Kasambya County MP says he was not aware of the cancellation of plenary but said he thought the SACCO meeting was scheduled for another day.
