Hon. Kafuuzi Karugaba Jackson, the current Deputy Attorney General and Kyaka South Member of Parliament has expressed interest in the position of Speaker of Parliament.
Hon. Kafuuzi was the second person to express interest.
“If CEC and my party caucus endorse me as a candidate, I will resign from my position as Deputy Attorney General,” he said.
The party will on Thursday sit to pick it’s the flag bearer for the contest that’s slated for Friday.
Kafuuzi says he gained enough experience from Speaker Oulanyah and the former Speaker Rebecca Kadaga which makes him a suitable candidate.
Kafuuzi says Oulanyah was a leader who inspired many of the young MPs in parliament and he knew how to do his job perfectly as a speaker.
Mr Kafuuzi graduated with a Bachelor of Laws Degree from Makerere University in 2002 and obtained a Diploma in Legal Practice from the Law Development Centre in 2003. From that time, he has been in service as a Legal Officer and later as an Advocate at Rwakafuuzi & Co. Advocates, until 2016 when he joined parliament.
Arua Central MP Jackson Atima Buti has also expressed interest to hold NRM’s flag in the upcoming race for Parliament’s Speakership, to replace the late Jacob Oulanyah.
He is the 3rd NRM MP to declare his intentions to the party
