The speaker of parliament Speaker Kadaga has declined to extend Gen David Sejusa aka. Tinyefuza who is in London and expects him in the next sitting which is tomorrow.
Sejusa, an army representative in Parliament, wrote to Kadaga through his lawyers on May 20, saying that he needs more time to complete his unfinished business in London. His initial three-week leave expired on May 19.
Speaker Kadaga has ordered him to appear in the next Parliamentary seating of which if he fails to do so, she will set in motion attempts to have Gen. Sejusa thrown out of parliament and also see the UPDF declare him a deserter.
“I hereby give you a warning for your continued absence from the House and accordingly require that you attend the house at the next sitting of Parliament,” the Speaker’s read to the House from the letter.
She adds that Gen. Sejusa is an army representative but has not attended 15 sittings without permission and neither is he away on Army or parliament duties.
When we contacted the lead Counsel Joseph Luzige confirmed that he had been called by the Speaker to go and pick a letter for his client but will give full details later.
Sejusa caused a storm by writing a letter to the ISO Director General, Col Ronnie Balya, asking him to investigate allegations of a plot to assassinate government officials perceived to be opposed to a possible Brig Muhoozi Kainerugaba presidency. Muhoozi, head of the Special Forces Command, is President Museveni’s son.
