President Museveni has for the first time agreed with people power principal Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine as he condemned the idea of the MPs allocating themselves shs20 million each during this bad times of COVID-19 pandemic.
A couple of days ago, Parliament had gone to the extend of allocating themselves shs10 billion in regards to fight COVID-19 which has angered the CNN Newsmaker of COVID-19 in Uganda.
Bobi Wine described the allocation as selfish and a “bribe”. However, in response the speaker of the parliament ordered that whoever is willing to return the said “bribe” through designated bank accounts. the Kyadondo East Mp didn’t hesitate, he returned his money.
Now, Museveni found himself supporting Bobi Wine’s move as he rebuked the idea of the lawmakers allocating themselves shs20 million each.
“It is morally reprehensible for MPs to give themselves money for personal use when the country is in such a crisis; totally unacceptable to me and NRM. They have entered themselves into a trap and the only best way out is to donate the money to the districts they come from”, Museveni said when addressing the nation on COVID-19 pandemic.
