Unlike the Leader of Opposition in Parliament, unhealthy Wafula Oguttu who this morning supported the controversial directive chasing journalists from Parliament, viagra 40mg the Deputy Speaker of Parliament, visit Jacob Oulanya and numerous Members of Parliament including commissioners have disowned the move.

Oulanyah dismissed the ‘funny’ development during a hot plenary session on Wednesday when the Kole County MP, Fred Ebil demanded parliament to clarify the decision to chase away journalists who have reported from the institution for more than five years.

The legislator termed the directive as “illogical reasoning at this critical information age.”

“Honorable Speaker we seek a clear response from this Parliament why some journalists are being chased away without clear guidelines. The move wrongly portrays this house, and more so at this information era.” Ebil said on the floor of Parliament.

Speaker Oulanyah informed the house that although he is a member on the Parliamentary Commission, he was not part of the meeting that made that decision and promised to consult the Commission about its decision that shall affect 52 journalists once implemented.

In the letter to media house editors, the Parliament Clerk Jane Kibirige, stated that the move was in “the interest of balanced media coverage.”

“Parliament made a decision to the effect that all reporters who have been covering Parliament for more than more than five years be replaced with effect from May 1st2015,” ordered the clerk.

“This is therefore to request that you arrange for replacement of old parliamentary reporters from your organization who have been covering Parliament since 2009.”


Oulanya noted, “I was not part of that commission that came up with such a decision though I am a member of the Parliamentary commission. I am going to follow it up and first consult on how it happened.” Oulanya said

Jane Kibirige’s Letter dated 9th March 2015 bears names of the 52 affected journalists and requests different media houses to immediately arrange the replacement of the sacked reporters effective 1st May this year.

Dokolo County MP Felix Okot Ogongo said that the decision was made in bad faith since the journalists parliament wants to send out are the very people who understand the workings of parliament.

“The decision to sweep out these journalists who have been with us here for years and mastered a lot is counterproductive and made in bad faith.” Okot Ogong said.

Angry affected journalists also described the move as senseless and a clear infringement on media freedom.
