‘Parliamentary Commission Should Apologize To MPs Over Shs20m COVID-19 Money’

The Parliamentary Commission should apologize to Members of Parliament over the controversial Shs20m, Ruhinda County North MP, Thomas Tayebwa, has demanded.

Parliament recently allocated itself Shs10bn out of the Shs304bn supplementary budget to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tayebwa said that the proposal by  Kawempe North lawmaker, Latif Ssebagala that MPS be given money to further the activities against COVID-19 was “out rightly rejected” by MPs.

He is now questioning where Parliament got authority to give MPs the controversial Shs20m money.

He said that since the court order followed a consent judgment, MPs deserve an apology from the Parliamentary Commission leadership for causing them an embarrassment.

“…I don’t know of any MP who requested for it,” he said.

However, Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has MPs not to panic over this controversial money but follow the guidelines she issued to them, asking them to return the money or give it to their district task forces on COVID-19 fight.
