Speaker of the national assembly, Dr. Patrick Matibini has ordered Vice President Guy Scott to issue a statement on the renovation of statehouse and government houses.
Dr. Matibini advised the Vice President to issue the statement during the course of business in the house on the issues.
The Speaker made this ruling in responding to a point of order from Monze Central MP Jack Mwiimbu who asked the speaker whether government was in order to make promises.
Mr. Mwiimbu stated that government has been making assurances on points of order but have not been coming back to inform the house on the progress.
The speaker observed that the point of order was penitent and valid and has since directed the Vice President to issues a statement on the renovation of state house and government houses.
The opposition MPs raised a point of order during the last sitting of parliament on the renovation of statehouse and government houses which they claimed government did not follow procurement procure when selecting contractors.
The speaker directed cabinet to issue a statement in the house which has not been done.
