The President of the National Unity Platform (NUP), Robert Kyagulanyi, has summoned all legislators affiliated to the party for an urgent Parliamentary Caucus meeting scheduled for today.
Sources say the meeting, at the party headquarters in Kavule, Kampala, is to discuss the current standoff in the Opposition political party.
According to a number of NUP legislators who did not want to go on camera, they have all received invitations from the Party inviting them for an urgent meeting with Kyagulanyi.
Even when the agenda of the meeting has not been shared with legislators, it has been learnt that the current standoff between the Party President and the Opposition Commissioner Mathias Mpuuga is going to be key on the agenda.
In this meeting, the Party President is expected to lobby NUP legislators to sign the motion that will see Mathias Mpuuga lose his seat as a Parliamentary Commissioner and replace him with Francis Zaake, the MP for Mityana Municipality.
The other issue is the increasing number of rebel MPs in the party where they constantly attack the Party leaders.
Those that have been lined up to be questioned as rebel MPs include Dr Abed Bwanika of Kimanya-Kabonera, Entebbe Municipality MP Kakembo Mbwatekamwa, Charles Tebandeke of Bbaale County, Jimmy Lwanga of Njeru Municipality, Dr Twaha Kagabo of Bukoto South, Masaka City Woman Mp Juliet Kakande, among others.
The National Unity Platform has 57 MPs but it’s not yet confirmed on whether all the legislators will attend the caucus meeting;
