Dr. Sam Lyomoki, a former Member of Parliament representing workers, has been removed from the position of Secretary General by the Central Executive Council of his organization – COFTU.
Dr. Lyomoki represented the Central Organisation of Free Trade Unions (COFTU) in Parliament, during the 10th Parliament and stayed on as a Board Member representing COFTU at the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) which remains in the spotlight over alleged abuse of funds by management and it’s supervisors the Minister and Board Members.
Lyomoki, along with his Deputy Ms Penninah Tukamwesiga, his secretary were impeached during a COFTU meeting held at Twin Tower Hotel in Kampala on March 4, 2023.
Dr. Lyomoki issued a statement dismissing the decisions of the COFTU and accused participants in the meeting as masqueraders.
Lyomoki now faces an uphill battle to keep his seat, if the COFTU resolutions turn out to be valid and are presented to Speaker of Parliament.
