Appearing before the Parliamentary Commission on Wednesday, Mugunga advised members to drop the idea for an extra Shs 43bn to top up their salaries.

“We received the request from Parliament but we are unable to find the Shs 4.2 trillion. These are not funded because they are not among the priorities and therefore, cannot be accommodated in the next budget,” Mugunga was quoted as saying.

MPs through the Clerk of Parliament, Jane Kibirige, have maintained that the Shs 19bn allocated to them is not enough since Parliament is yet to start consolidating MPs’ pay beginning the new financial year hence the need for the Shs 43bn top up.

According to reports MPs were promised last year that their payments would better in this year’s budget but to no avail.
