With humility and a contrite heart I would Like to extend my sincere gratitude to our Party Leader, His Excellency General Yoweri Kaguta Museveni; and, the distinguished Men and Women of the Central Executive Committee of the NRM Party for their vote of confidence.
In the same vein I also extend my appreciation to the Members of Parliament of the NRM Caucus for their unwavering support and indeed, the entire Parliament of Uganda fraternity for their overwhelming support thus far.
It is my earnest prayer that we conclude this process with nobility and decorum as a befitting tribute to our beloved departed leader, the Rt. Hon. Jacob L’Okori Oulanyah.
May the Almighty God grant us the courage and fortitude to overcome this trying moment in the history of our Parliament For God and my Country. ANITA ANNET AMONG, MP DEPUTY SPEAKER OF PARLIAMENT
