New Speaker of Parliament Rt Hon. Jacob Oulanyah has returned Chris Obore as Director of Communications and Public Affairs of Parliament of Uganda, just a day after his election.
Obore who had an outstanding contract was locked out of office in 2019 and sent on forced leave.
Obore’s trouble with parliament started in March 2019 when Kibirige notified him that the Inspectorate of Government (IG) had conducted investigations noting that his 2015 recruitment at parliament was irregular. According to the IG, Obore did not have the requisite qualifications for the job at the time of his recruitment.
However, it later turned out that Obore was witch-hunted after falling out with Hon Rebecca Kadaga, the Speaker of Parliament then.
Obore has been out of office for close to two years.
