Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has responded to claims she is serving opposition interests to the detriment of her party, the National Resistance Movement.
The Speaker said her job demands fairness and neutrality in dealing with leaders regardless of their political party inclinations.
In a talk show on Busoga One FM in Jinja this morning, Kadaga said since the advent of multiparty politics in 2005, working with leaders from all political formations is inevitable.
“There are people who do not understand multiparty politics; it means many parties in Parliament. There’s JEEMA, DP, UPC and others. In our Commonwealth arrangement, you have to be balanced. There are also people from the traditional opposition who currently sit in Cabinet,” she said.
She was flanked by MPs Moses Walyomu (NRM, Kagoma County) and Nelson Lufafa (NRM, Butembe).
