NRM’s definition of indiscipline needs to be corrected
Posted Friday, January 18 2013 at 15:58
In the on going NRM retreat in Kyankwanzi, it was resolved that some NRM MPs will the face the disciplinary committee.
The said MPs have always been seen in the media and in parliament taking positions contrary to that of the ruling party and it is one of the major reasons why they will face sanctions.
However, have these MPs really been indisciplined? They have not been reported to be involved in corruption scandals neither have we seen them engage in any un-lawful actions. Why not discipline those implicated in Chogm, Temangalo, UBC and other corruption scandals?
What is the definition of indiscipline in NRM? Is it when you talk about the negative side of the party or government? Is it indiscipline to defend and talk about conservation of Mabira forest? Or defend our oil and taxpayers’ money that is stolen?
Is it being indisciplined when you talk about presidential term limits?
These MPs besides being NRM members represent people who elected them. They were not elected by the party but the people.
Secondly, have their concerns been heard and addressed by the party for instance when they talk about presidential term limits, are they given a platform to sell their idea in the party structures?
I believe NRM is going off track if it continues to harass those who stand for the truth.
