The Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, is this Monday morning presiding over the vetting of new ministers at Parliament Buildings in Kampala.

The constitution requires that certain personnel appointments made by the President must be approved by Parliament.

The purpose of the provision is to ensure that a person seeking to serve in a certain position has the necessary education, work experience, competence, temperament, vision and integrity.
