Obore Woes Continues As Parliament Extends Forced Leave Indefinitely

The embattled Director of Communications and Public Affairs at Parliament, Chris Obore’s woes continues to worsen after Parliament extended his leave indefinitely as it awaits a final decision from the Parliamentary Commission.

This is contained in a letter by Clerk to Parliament, Jane Kibirige dated 5th February 2020 to Obore (pictured) after the 144 days he was meant to serve his leave elapsed.

It should be recalled that on 18th September 2019, the Clerk to Parliament wrote to Obore requiring him to take his accumulated leave of 114 days.

Obore’s matters were discussed in the meeting of the Parliamentary Commission held on 17th January 2020, whose findings await final decision.

 “While awaiting to be guided on the way forward by the Commission, I have been directed to instruct you to remain away from your duties on the same terms as earlier communicated to you in my letter of 18th September 2019 until the Commission guides accordingly,” she wrote.

Kibirige added that as Obore awaits the decision by the Parliamentary Commission, the Deputy Clerk Corporate Affairs, Henry Waiswa is instructed to continue managing the affairs of the Department of Communication and Public Affairs.
