Lyomoki has made the remarks while addressing journalists having spent the night in the Parliament chamber yesterday as he had pledged to do in protest against the delayed enactment of the NSSF amendment bill 2019.
The bill has become embroiled in controversy regarding a tough war between parties over whether the finance ministry or the Gender ministry should supervise the fund.
Also creating further friction is a tug of war between workers representatives and the government over midterm accesses to funds by workers to a tune of 20% especially those who have saved for 10 years and clocked 45 years of age.
Lyomoki who has pledged to continue camp in the Parliament chamber until the bill is passed says the speaker is handling the ministers responsible for the bill with kid gloves.
Speaker Kadaga was forced to abruptly adjourn the plenary sitting yesterday when Lyomoki declined to leave the floor while he was protesting a ruling by the speaker to postpone the second reading of the bill for a further two weeks.
The speaker’s decision followed the absence of both the gender and finance ministers even though the bill had been placed on the order paper for the second reading.
He asserts he doesn’t regret his actions because the speaker is under pressure from Cabinet not to take a tough stance.
Plenary sittings have now been adjourned indefinitely according to a communication from the clerk to parliament on Wednesday evening.
