Uganda 11th parliament to spend 165bn shillings on MP

The minister of finance Matia Kasaija is hunting for 165bn shillings to avail Parliament for giving each MP a motor vehicle allowance in the 11th Parliament. Divided by the 514 MPs, each will be pocketing 321million shillings since there are no implementation costs for the ‘programme’.

Matia Kasaija told URN last night that even if the 165 billion expenditure for cars is not yet funded, the money will have to be availed because the MPs need transport, especially the first termers.
