The Right Honourable Speaker,
Parliament of the Republic Of Uganda,
Plot 16-18 Parliament Avenue,
P.O Box 7178, Kampala, Uganda.
Dear Madam Speaker,
Re: Appreciation to Parliament of the Republic of Uganda
Reference is made to the Complaint Concerning Under-performance of Law Development Centre (hereinafter ‘the LDC Complaint’).
At a meeting of signatories to and sympathizers of the above cause, duly convened in the name of the people of Uganda of goodwill, on Friday, 27 June, 2014, members observed and resolved as follows:
First, that appreciation to Parliament for prioritizing this important matter of national and regional concern, by including it on the Order Paper of the House, are in order; for which formal communication of the same must be made. And it is hereby made – thank you very much. We are very proud of you.
Second, that a few of us will meet and peacefully assemble at Parliament as guests, on Wednesday, 2 July, 2014, at 10:00 AM, ready to attend the parliamentary debate and proceedings at 2:00 PM of the same day, during which the motion on the LDC Complaint will hopefully be presented to, debated and passed by Honourable Members of Parliament. Further, that in the event this does not happen as expected, more of us will keep meeting and peacefully assembling at Parliament as guests until it does. However, members voted to maintain the suspension of the Occupy Parliament Campaign, until further notice.
Third, that being well meaning and law abiding citizens of this wonderful country, Uganda; and in conformity with our practice particular to the handling of this matter, by copy of this letter, the Uganda Police be notified of these and forthcoming developments, specifically calling upon our gallant officers, men and women in the police and other security agencies, to be patriotic enough, by enabling – not hindering – our citizens in the enjoyment of their fundamental human rights and freedoms.
