KAMPALA - Under the command of ..., 8 Dec 2012 [cached]
KAMPALA - Under the command of deputy speaker Jacob Oulanyah, parliament on Friday passed the controversial Oil Bill amidst speculations that the speaker Rebecca Kadaga chose to withdraw from presiding over it due to enormous pressure from government, the opposition, religious leaders and the civil society organizations.
Kadaga conspicuously left her deputy (Oulanya) who had just come back to the country to preside over passing the Petroleum (Exploration, Development and Production) Bill 2012.
Kadaga's apprehensive withdrawal caused parliament to on Thursday waste about four hours on technicalities as Oulanya was unsure on how to proceed from where Kadaga stopped.
This compelled him to call for a copy of the Hansard and read word after word the proceedings of the plenary session Kadaga last chaired on Tuesday.
On that Tuesday on this week voting on the clause had already started and many had voted already but Kadaga halted the process after the opposition MPs raised procedural concerns.
The move greatly angered the Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi and several ministers who argued that Kadaga was out of order.
The following day, the speaker Rebecca Kadaga suspended parliament and instructed the rules, privileges and discipline committee to investigate the incident so that action can be taken against the culprits.
The Civil Society groups went another mile of presenting seven petitions on the Bill to the speaker of parliament on Wednesday and Kadaga promised that she would forward their petitions to the committee of natural resources.
A recent survey by Research World International established that Rebecca Kadaga, the first Lady Janet Museveni and former Vice President Prof. Gilbert Bukenya as the most preferred leaders to succeed President Yoweri Museveni.
Several political leaders from across the political divide and religious leaders like Father Gaetano Batanyenda have been calling upon Rebecca Kadaga to offer herself to be the next President of Uganda.
Kadaga, who is also well known for deliberate efforts to redeem Uganda's parliament to act independent of the executive, could not preside over recommitting a clause after the president's intervention when parliament had already taken a decision on the matter.
It is widely believed that it is upon that background of counter accusations and pressure on Kadaga from the opposition, the civil society, religious leaders, advisors, citizens, and the executive that was doing whatever possible to push through its agenda that Kadaga possibly chose to get out of the flying pan and leave Oulanyah in charge.
But the speaker (Rebecca Kadaga) yesterday dismissed the suspicion that she deliberately abandoned presiding over the passing the oil Bill.
Speaking to New Vision, Kadaga said, "I had an assignment from my party which had been agreed upon earlier. That is why I could be in charge on that."
Asked what the assignment was Kadaga said, "I had been asked to go and reconcile the voters in Kamuli who had voted for an opposition candidate. That assignment had been already planned."
On the assumption that she feared to be held responsible for passing a controversial Bill, she said "That is not true.

Rebecca Kadaga wanted for president â€" survey Publish Date: Jun 04, 2012
A survey by Research World International, whose findings were released last week, shows that Kadaga has the biggest support from Ugandans across the political divide to be the next President of Uganda.
Unlike her predecessor, Kadaga continues profiling herself as a people's Speaker by participating in various community functions. There is belief now, that if you want to invite a top leader as a guestof- honour who will not disappoint you however small the occasion, Kadaga is the person to invite. This has been interpreted by some to imply Kadaga is trying to build a wider political base which can catapult her into the presidency. On the contrary, while reacting to her misunderstandings with Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi recently, Kadaga dismissed reports that she was interested in becoming President. The poll further showed that after President Yoweri Museveni, Kadaga commands the biggest support outside the NRM.
Asked to rate Kadaga's first year as speaker of Parliament, the opposition attorney general, Abdul Katuntu said: "I think Hon. Kadaga is the best Speaker Uganda has ever had.
The confidence the institution enjoys today is because of Kadaga more than any other person." The increasing global campaign for a woman President can also compel Kadaga to run for President. Arguing that male Presidents have messed up Uganda, the Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi, recently said the next President should be a woman. In March this year, outspoken Kabale priest Fr. Gaetano Batanyenda endorsed Kadaga to become the Uganda's first woman President. : : The World's Largest Pro-Choice Network [cached]

Kadaga was also defiant in the face of threats by several foreign governments to withhold aid and visas if the bill passes. "If the price of aid is going to be the promotion of homosexuality in this country," she told supporters, "I think we don't want that aid."
Responding to the unprovoked Baird attack, Ms Kadaga said: "When we came for this Assembly, to which we were invited, we expected respect for our sovereignty, our values and our country … "I, therefore, on behalf of the Ugandan delegation, and, indeed, the people of Uganda, protest in the strongest terms the arrogance exhibited by the Foreign Minister of Canada, who spent most of his time attacking Uganda and promoting homosexuality."
...For that matter, Ms Kadaga said: "If homosexuality is a value for the people of Canada they should not seek to force Uganda to embrace it.
By press time, Ms Kadaga's retort carried in the Daily Monitor yesterday had attracted numerous comments on this newspaper's web site with most of them applauding her for defending the culture, values and norms of Ugandans from "Western cultural perversion".
