Museveni, MPs to meet today over security concerns

Members of Parliament are expected today to meet with president Museveni in an interactive meeting billed to be on the deteriorating security situation in the country.

The meeting had earlier been scheduled for June 26 but pushed to today because the president had traveled to Khartoum Sudan to be part of the talks between South Sudanese politicians to try and bring to an end the civil war in their country.

A communication from the Clerk to Parliament Jane Kibirige said the meeting will take place on Wednesday June 27 at 11:00 am in the conference hall of the office of the Prime Minister.

From Khartoum, Museveni headed for Nairobi Kenya to attend the 14th summit of the Northern Corridor Integration Project.

On June 20, speaker Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga informed Members of Parliament that they will have an interaction with the president on matters concerning security in the country.

The meeting is set to address the current wave of crimes ranging from kidnaps to murders that have been on the rise lately. There are a lot of unaddressed security questions ranging from kidnaps to murders.

Of recent Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiriga was brutally assassinated on his way back home in Kawanda and the culprits are yet to be arrested.

This meeting will be the second in a week where the president addresses himself on security situation in the country that has got everyone talking. Last week Museveni addressed Parliament laying down 10 measures to tackle insecurity.
