Former Minister for Ethics and Integrity (1998 to 2003), and member of the Pan-African Parliament representing Uganda for over 2 decades beginning in 1989, Hon Miria Rukoza Koburunga Matembe, has joined the “voices” punching holes in the Public Health (Amendment) Bill, 2021.
Matembe, a strong proponent for, and an advocate of human rights in Uganda especially women’s, argues that there are certain issues that are controversial like “mandatory vaccination” yet there is no health insurance in Uganda. She adds that even European countries are withdrawing from mandatory vaccination amidst COVID-19 pandemic.
She was a member of the Constitutional Commission that created the Ugandan Constitution in 1995, and was one of the experts from Uganda and Kenya that reviewed and made proposals on the Proposed Constitution of Tanzania and presented their findings to the Warioba Committee in 2015, under the auspices of Kituo cha Katiba.
The former chairperson of Action for Development, Uganda’s leading women’s advocacy organization, an organization she co-founded says “NO TO MANDATORY VACCINATION”, asking parliamentarians to speak for the people and all people to wake up & open their eyes.
