NUP MP Matovu: We swore to protect a useless constitution

Busiro South Member of Parliament Charles Matovu has decried that even after swearing to protect and defend the constitution of Uganda, what they are to protect has been turned into a useless document that those leading this country do not follow.

Matovu said this during his thanks giving ceremony held at his home village in Nkungulutale, Kajjansi town council on Wednesday evening.

Matovu was sworn in on Wednesday afternoon to become incumbent Busiro South Member of Parliament. Matovu said, the Ugandan constitution has severally been abrogated by those with power, imprisoning dissent

“I am hurt that I got a bible and swore to protect the constitution. Honestly, No one is taught how to love his parents. But it is a shame I swore to protect the constitution. However, we swore to protect and defend a useless document.”

He said it is high time to work so hard and ensure that our next swearing in will be one that honors a respected constitution.

It is Matovu’s first time to represent the population in parliament. He said, well as other leaders hide from the population, he wants to work towards understanding societal needs to ensure that all challenges within society are addressed.

“I want you take my hands, I take yours. You take my eyes, I take yours! You take my legs, I take yours. This will help me see what you see, to speak what you want me to speak and move to places where you want me to go,” Matovu says.

One of the major challenges within his constituency is the bad road within the area, the main Kisubi – Nakawuka – Nateete – Kasanje – Mpigi road. Government of Uganda has severally promised to rehabilitee and upgrade the road since 2006.

Priests at the Nakaliiba Parish in Nakawuka prayed that the MP delivers as per his mandate as a Parliamentarian.
