STATEMENT ON THE UGX 40M GIVEN ILLEGALLY TO MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT

On Saturday 11th June, 2022, several Members of Parliament belonging to the National Unity Platform reached out to the Party leadership asking about our position on Uganda Shillings 40 Million, that was being given out to each Member of Parliament.

We immediately set out to establish the truth. It turned out that NRM Members were receiving this money in cash from Parliament, while opposition and independent MPs were receiving it from the home of Ms. Anita Among- the Speaker of Parliament! The Members were being told that the money was a token of appreciation, while others were told the money was meant to supplement their income in the tough economic situation in the country. It should have been obvious to everyone that the money was both illegal and immoral, given that it was being given out in cash without any clear explanation about its source and purpose. Some Members were being told to go with boda-bodas or cars not belonging to them in order to disguise themselves! We appreciate the Members who immediately realised this trap and refused to partake of it.

The National Unity Platform condemns this open day corruption in the strongest terms possible. How can public funds be handled in this manner? A quick summation of these funds shows that the regime is spending over 20 billion shillings on this illegal, immoral and corrupt venture. This is going on at a time when the citizens of Uganda are grappling with skyrocketing commodity prices and an extremely tough economic situation. Gen. Museveni and his kleptocratic regime are not bothered about what ordinary Ugandans are going through as long as they are comfortably spending tax-payers’ money for their own benefit.

We established that a few NUP MPs had unfortunately picked this money, since everyone else was picking it. The Party convened an emergency caucus meeting yesterday and resolved that Members belonging to NUP who had picked the money return it immediately because it was clearly a bribe.

Thank you!

Strongly believe that MPs shouldn’t have received this money and those received it should not only return the money but also punished for doing so. We need a list of those members who received the money so that we know how many returned the money.

Besides that, let me also take this opportunity to thank the party for good work done upon the issues Hon ssegirinya Muhammad of Kawempe North. On behalf of people of Kawempe North we really appreciate and pray that one day he will be free plus other political prisoners.

Thank you so much our LoP Mr Mpunga , Secretary general, spokespersons and the President himself HE. Kayagulanyi Robert Ssentamu

How sure that they returned it back? NUP leaders should expose those MPs who decided to take the irregle money or let them be canceled from the party.

I think this money should be taken to the nup treasury or to their constituencies, because even if you take it back, they eat it.

IN THE GOVERNMENT OF UGANDA TODAY I DONT THINK THERE IS ANY GOOD PERSON OR MP YOU ARE ALL THE SAME. WHETHER NUP, NRM, INDEPENDENT OR ANY OTHER PARTY. AS UGANDA THERE ARE NO FACTS. THIS IS A LIE WHAT YOU MEAN THE NUP PARTY DIDNT RECEIVE THE 40M. YOUR ALL THE SAME JUST YOU WANT TO MAKE THE NAME “OPPOSITION”.
