Parliament pushes official centenary celebrations to May over Covid19

Parliament will on Tuesday, March 23, be marking 100 years of existence since it’s very first session on the same date in the year 1921.

Since the four-member session, the institution has since undergone a series of changes to become the modern institution it is now, with a membership of 529.

According to the institution’s Spokesperson Helen Nanteza Kawesa, this is a landmark achievement worth celebrating.

Kawesa added that the numerous achievements the institution has registered in the century of existence are the reason why March 23 is a big day to Parliament.

These achievements include construction of physical infrastructure, improved representation and members’ welfare, and equity of members both in opposition and government, among others. 

Unfortunately, Kawesa adds, due to the current coronavirus situation in the country, the centenary celebrations will have to wait until May.

“Our celebrations will be low key due to the current Covid19 situation,” she told Pearl Times News at Parliament on March 21.

“We shall only commemorate it as we wait for May when we shall officially celebrate the milestone.”
