National Resistance Movement (NRM) members of Parliament have each scooped Shs5M for voting Annet Anita Among and Thomas Tayebwa as Speaker and Deputy Speaker respectively.
The Party rewarded each member who voted received a whooping Shs5M for voting the duo.
Each Member received the money basing from the region he or she comes from.
Kalungu County West MP Joseph Ssewungu Gonzaga (NUP) says the government should have considered constructing schools in the country instead of splashing the money on its MPs
“The country has poor schools and the government is spending a lot of money in paying NRM Members of Parliament for voting Among and Tayebwa.” This is very bad to our nation and I was surprised with what I saw at the Parliament.”
“We are facing a lot of problems in the country which I believe should be considered first.”
Ssewungu told CBS FM
