Constitutional court quashes Among’s bid to fire Zaake


The Constitutional Court on Thursday quashed a resolution by Speaker of Parliament Ms Anita Among to fire the Mityana Municipality legislator Mr Francis Zaake as a commissioner of Parliament.
The ruling pinned Speaker Among on violating the rules of natural justice and taking a decision to dismiss Zaake with no quorum in Parliament at that time of the sitting.
Zaake later told press is safe and as well accused the presider for the August house of behaving like a dictator and not following the legal procedures of the House she leads.
“It has been cleared today that the legislature as an arm of government that makes the law does not respect the laws it makes. Madam Anita Among is not supposed to be called Right Honorable because she doesn’t follow the law going by the outcome of this case. She has ashamed the Parliament of Uganda. She behaves like a dictator,” Hon Zaake who subscribes to the Opposition National Unity Platform told journalists on Thursday morning.
He added; “She thought she’s untouchable but today she has been touched. As a leader of Parliament, she’s supposed to obey and follow the law. According to the ruling, in this case, I’m still a commissioner.”
Zaake was March last year dismissed from being a commissioner on the committee of parliament which involves the Leader of the Opposition, the Speaker of parliament, and the prime minister on allegations that he insulted Speaker Among through a social media post via Twitter (now X).
