The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga on a rare circumstance lost her cool live on Television. While appearing on NTV, On The Spot Show host, Patrick Kamara asked Kadaga when she expects to retire, a question that did not sound cool in the Speaker’s ears.
“I didn’t come here for that. I don’t like the way you smuggle in questions. I won’t discuss that issue with anyone else, “Kadaga furiously said.
“The issue of retirement is between me (Kadaga) and my voters, they’re the ones I discuss with. I have refused to discuss that with anybody, it’s not your business, she added.
Kadaga is one of the longest serving Member of Parliament (MP) in Uganda and she has held the position of being the Kamuli District Woman MP since 1989. She is the first woman to be elected Speaker in the history of the Parliament of Uganda when she succeeded Edward Ssekandi on May 19, 2011.
