“Army representative in parliament helps them keep track of proceedings”

By Moses Kyeyune

Former UPDF political Commissar, Col Felix Kulaigye who is also an army representative in parliament has emphasized the importance of the presence of the military in the House saying it helps them keep track of proceedings.

Kulaigye was addressing military officers and students from Tanzania, Kenya and South Africa who are undergoing training at the Senior Staff College in Kimaka and had paid a courtesy call to parliament for benchmarking.

He was responding to queries on impartiality raised by Lt.Col Norman Kristen from South Africa.

The presence of the army in Parliament remains a subject of debate as sections of the opposition and civil society consider it a constitutional error.
