Parliament Tasks ICT Minister To Investigate Rwomushana Statetements

By Moses Kyeyune

Parliament has tasked the minister of Information and Communications Technology Hon. Frank Tumwebaze to investigate utterances by former state house intelligence operative Charles Rwomushana alluding to female legislators as prostitutes.

The directive by the Deputy Speaker of Parliament Rt Hon.Jacob Oulanyah follows complaints by female members of parliament that Rwomushana made the utterances while appearing on a local television.

Lira Woman Member of Parliamnet Hon.Joy Atim told the deputy Speaker that Rwomushana’s allegations bring the members’ reputations into contempt.

Meanwhile, Tumwebaze has asked parliament to allow room for procedural undertakings by the Uganda Communications Commission.

Rwomushana has on several occasions been summoned by the Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department of police over various statements, although no case has been brought against him.
