MPs Want 85 Billion Shillings for Cars (Youtube-Clip)

“In the 9th parliament, the Parliamentary Commission gave each legislature 103 million shillings to procure vehicles that meet their standards as members of Parliament . The story of the 10th parliament is different as the new legislators now want this fee almost doubled. They are now asking for 200 million shillings and if approved then the government will have to part with a total of 85.4 billion shillings for the vehicles alone. They argue that given the state of economy and the new taxes that were imposed on Vehicles, this increment is justified. The new legislators also demand for the reinstatement of the Constituency Development fund that were scrapped in the 9th Parliament. Before scrapping of the fund each legislator was being given 10 million shillings cash annually for the development of his constituency. The legislators also demand for an increment in their monthly emoluments from 26 to 50 million shillings. If Parliament is to pay 50 million shillings per legislator, the Parliamentary commission will then be mandated to spend 21.3 billion shillings on the emoluments of the 427 legislators per month. So before the new legislators can have even their first sitting, these are the demands and before we know it, they will definitely be more than this” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)
