Kadaga instructs Internal Affairs Minister to present lists of all kidnapped Ugandans

The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga has directed the Minister of Internal Affairs Gen. Jjeje Odong to present to Parliament a list of all persons that have gone missing in the Country over the two months.

This was after the Minister for Defense Adolf Mwesige told Parliament that his Ministry has already handed over the list of persons the UPDF is holding to the Ministry of Internal affairs as directed by the President.

On the 13th of this month, while addressing Ugandans on the state of Security of the Country, President Yoweri Museveni asked all security agencies to immediately release a list of all persons that have been arrested in operations termed as ‘kidnaps’ by the population.

But, speaking during a Parliamentary sitting chaired by Speaker Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga, Kawempe North Legislator Haj Latif Ssebagala said it was unfortunate that security agencies were yet to release the list as ordered by the President.

However, to the Defense Minister Adolf Mwesige, a list from his Ministry was reported to have been already been handed over to Police that will be charged with issuing it out to the public.

The First Deputy Prime Minister General Moses Ali caused an uproar when he revealed the list was not for public consumption something that the majority of the legislators opposed.

This compelled the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga to direct the Minister for internal affairs General Jeje Odong to table a list of all missing persons to parliament on Thursday.

Post electoral period was characterized with disappearances of hundreds of youths around the country – in what former presidential candidate Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert termed as a clamp down on his supporters.
