KIU Students Mesmerized by the pleasant hospitality at Parliament


By Isaac Akugizibwe

KIU, Main Campus-KIU students who on Tuesday visited the parliament of Uganda under the legal trip project have described the experience as the best. From touring the premises to interacting with high-profile individuals including legislators and other parliamentary staff, everything played straight to their trip's expectations.

To many, this was the first time to visit the parliament of Uganda, a dream come true to some but attending a full parliamentary session was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that at least each participant will keep in memory for some time.

Livingston Muhumuza, the speaker of the KIU Law Society said that the trip gave students a sneak peek of life outside the law school.

"We were introduced to different processes through which motions, petitions, and other legal documents are formulated before they are taken to the floor of parliament," he said.

"We also had one on one moments with lawmakers and legal minds at Parliament and we hope these contacts will be beneficial to individuals with time," he added.

KIU Law Society president, David Reagan Kaddu said he was overjoyed by the hospitality and warm treatment from authorities at the Parliament.

"These people treated us like honourable, so lovely, welcoming and comforting. We were given the best hospitality, something we least expected," he narrated.
"Above all, we got what we needed and surely, all students who went to the Parliament are very thankful," he added.

However, according to president Kaddu, there is still another group set to go to parliament next Tuesday.

 He said that authorities at Parliament advised him to divide the numbers by two for easy management and monitoring.
