EXCLUSIVE: Newly elected Parliament speaker, Anita 𝐀𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐠, 𝐫𝐞𝐣𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐬 𝐎𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐲𝐚𝐡's office

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that the 11th Parliament speaker of Uganda, Anita Annet Among, has rejected the office of predecessor, Oulanyah. (Read More Here).

According to NTV Uganda, reported that Anita says the office of late Oulanyah would bring back fond memories she had with the deceased. 

NTV Uganda says: "𝐀𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐫𝐞𝐣𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐬 𝐎𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐲𝐚𝐡 𝐨𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐞
According to sources in parliament, Ms Anita Among opted to keep her office on grounds that she is “comfortable in it” and that relocating to the 6th floor would resurrect her fond memories with Oulanyah." 

Anita Among is the new Speaker of Uganda’s Parliament after she was elected on Friday to the office vacated by Jacob Oulanyah, who died last Saturday in the United States.

Oulanyah was receiving treatment at a hospital in Seattle, Washington.

Among, the Bukedea District Woman MP polled 401 votes ahead of Bugiri Municipality legislator Asuman Basalirwa, who garnered 66 votes.

Ms Among was fronted by the ruling party NRM, which enjoys a majority in Parliament, while Mr Basalirwa is an opposition member. NRM has 330 lawmakers of the 519 elected MPs. 

“By the grace of God, we shall do our bit to create a better country for all in honour of the legacy of our fallen leader and brother Jacob Oulanyah,” said Ms Among, after she was declared the winner by Chief Justice Alphonse Owiny Dollo, who presided over the election. 

The new Speaker faces an uphill task of taming new schemes to change the Constitution from a presidential to a parliamentary system and unifying an already divided Parliament, especially after the demise of Oulanyah, which has pitted the north, where he hailed from, against southerners.
