Drama as Bobi Wine appoints MP Zaake to a ghost position in Parliament

By Davis Mugabi

Speaker Anita Among has blocked the appointment of Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament, Francis Zaake, as the Deputy Chief Whip in Parliament.

Among says MP was given “hot air” because such a position doesn’t exist within the Rules and Procedure of Parliament.

Drama started when John Baptist Nambeshe, Chief Opposition Whip stood up to designate Zaake on two positions, Shadow Minister of Presidency and Security, as well as Deputy Chief Whip, a ploy Speaker halted, prompting the Opposition to rescind on its position.

“We don’t have that position (Deputy Chief Whip) in our Rules of Procedure. We don’t have it, withdraw it. We have a whip who is your good self, we don’t have a Deputy in our Rules of Procedure. That is air, if someone has been given air, that is air,” said Among.
