Minister for finance to be questioned over #AgeLimit Certificate of Financial Implication

By Moses Kyeyune:

The House Committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs has resolved to question the Minister of Finance Matia Kasaija over the Certificate of Financial Implication given to Igara West MP Raphael Magyezi as support for his Bill on the age limit.

Also to be questioned is Jane Kibirige, the Clerk to Parliament on how the Bill was gazetted.

This has come after the opposition MPs Ibrahim Ssemujju of Kira Municipality and Bugweri County’s Abdul Katuntu raised suspicion that the documents dated 28 September could be forgeries.

The MPs fear that just like Magyezi forged a committee report during the 9th Parliament, in could be the case with the Certificate of Financial Implication and the Gazetted Bill.

Meanwhile Magyezi has distanced himself from the documents saying that they were authored by legal bodies.

The committee chairperson, Jacob Oboth Oboth has now tasked the Committee Clerk to invite Kasaija and Kibirige on a date yet to be communicated.
