EALA speaker should quit if charges against her are valid

In regard to East Africa Legislative Assembly Speaker Margaret Zziwa’s censure, I think EALA MPs must have had enough self restraint before deciding on censure moves.
I am a Ugandan and would rather have Uganda’s flag shine at the regional and global level – but only if indeed we deserve the credit. In the event that our own turns out to be substandard, we should be magnanimous and accept the objective views of the others. I heard Ms Zziwa say that MP Dora Byamukama is one of the people behind her woes. If its true then Byamukama is more influential than Ziwa – being able to convince more than 13 of the House is no mean achievement.
My concern however is that I have not seen the specific issues for which they are pushing Zziwa out are genuine, let her succumb. Besides, at this rate there is no way she can go back and preside over an August House that is predominantly disinterested in her leadership. Let another Ugandan take over and even if Zziwa or any one else wants to undermine himher, other MPs are wise enough to see reason.
