Nyege Nyege Fete: PM Nabanja Summons Crisis Meeting

Revellers at the 2019 Nyege Nyege festival

Prime Minister Hon. Robinah Nabanja had called for a crisis meeting this Wednesday morning, to decide the fate of the Nyege Nyege festivals that were blocked by Parliament on Tuesday.

Parliament, led by Speaker Hon Anita Among blocked the annual event which is scheduled to take place in Jinja next week, citing immoralities.

Among accused the organizers of the said event for mooting deliberate plans of promoting gays in Uganda.

Despite pleas by the State Minister of Tourism, that they had sold 800 tickets to foreigners, Among said that the 3 days event can’t go to the expense of Parents and Children.

Now n the September 6, letter seen by DaParrot, Nabanja summoned the line Ministers to her Board room to discuss the matter.
