In accordance to the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, Members of Parliament, have a ‘five-year-term’ which is considered to be an ample period for the legislators to showcase their capabilities before their constituents regarding their core roles; if not face scrutiny or rather impeachment, accordingly.

It’s almost three years since the last elections were conducted, and the ‘wanainchi’ casted their vote in respect to their leaders at diverse levels. Whilst, some positions like MPship tend to call for profound scrutiny, which is done subsequently in reference to the legislators’ performance.

The recent survey conducted by The New Vision’s Hansard Rankings and published on Saturday, 1st of June, 2024, the Kazo Woman MP, Hon. Jennifer Muheesi’s performance left many Kazonians wondering if they voted for the competent representative or not, for her performance scores are as low as 1, ranking her at position no. 541 amidst the 585 legislators at Uganda’s Parliament.

This simply highlights that Jennifer Muheesi only tried to legislate at Parliament once between June, 2023 up to April 2024. Astonishingly though, the Kazo area MP Hon. Dan Atwijukire Kimosho scores were remarkably at 69. Amidst the Ankole MPs, Hon. Dan Kimosho becomes second following Hon. Wilson Twinomugisha Kajwengye of Nyabushozi county who scored 191— making him the 3rd best performing MP.

The survey list was headed by the Kakumiro Woman MP, Rt. Hon. Nabbanja Robinah, who overwhelmingly scored 292 placing her in no. 1 position. Among the list of the worst performers is: Alice Kaboyo, Kahinda Otafiire, Jeje Odongo, to mention but just a few.
