Fisheries minister needed now

Parliament has asked president to expedite the process appointing a state minister to fill the vacant position of minister for fisheries.

During the formulation of the current cabinet, the president appointed Ruth Achieng as the minister of state for fisheries but she was allegedly blocked by NRM leaders from lango on ground that the president had appointed many opposition ministers from this sub region and her name was subsequently scrapped off the list.

Now the speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaaga has asked the president to fill this gape, because the field has a lot of challenges which needs a specific person to address them.

She explained that Parliament have a lot of capable members who can fill this position and bridge this gape.
