He asked the new speakers to change from wearing wigs.

“You see the wigs they are putting on. Wigs! Why are you putting on wigs? I was a Speaker but never put on the wig. I’m not mad. In Tanzania, they have changed, they don’t put on wigs,” said Museveni. 

This is what happens we adopt many things from elsewhere. Imagine these wigs the Speakers put on. I feel embarrassed when I see the Chief Justice and Speaker putting on wigs. Why do we copy these things? I was a speaker myself by the way and I never put on that wig.”
