treat geneva; color: #222222;”>According to a statement from Parliament dated March 26, the duo discussed issues surrounding the number of female Speakers of Parliament.

They further argued on ways in which more women may be encouraged to vie not only for Parliamentary positions, but aspire for the “helm of legislative politics.”

Kadaga is said to be nurturing plans of contesting for Uganda’s presidency in 2016, reports that have since unsettled the Kampala government.

Currently, only 39 women worldwide preside over Houses of the 190 Parliaments, 77 of which are bicameral.


In Africa, the countries with women speakers are Botswana (National Assembly), Gabon (Senate), Rwanda (Chamber of Deputies), Swaziland (Senate), Tanzania (Bunge), Zimbabwe (Senate) and Uganda (Parliament).
