While presiding the house on Tuesday during plenary, the speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Anita Among had no kind words for Ugandans who have made it a ritual to take to the streets whenever there is an issue they want government to work upon.

The speaker was reacting to the latest episode of protest that was championed by coffee growers who flanked Bombo road, Kampala yesterday to express their grievances with how government had handled their matters.
“Even if you protest, nothing will change. You can protest as many times as you want but nothing will change,” she said. “Instead of writing petitions and bringing them to Parliament to be discussed, you choose the streets. There’s nothing your protests will change,” she told Ugandan activists.
The speaker’s anger came just a day after activists under their umbrella dubbed Torture survivors movement stormed the precincts of Parliament to decry the plight of Ugandans being brutalized and murdered in the Middle East countries especially Saudi Arabia. The activists sought audience with Parliament to see if it can pronounce itself on the plight of Ugandans who are being repatriated back to the country with their internal organs like kidnets missing. It is said that Ugandans and Africans in the Middle East are deliberately murdered for their internal organs.
