UNCERTAIN: MPs Petition Kadaga over Car Money

Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga

A total of 31 Members of Parliament facing election petitions at the Court of Appeal have petitioned the Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and the Parliamentary Commission over their delayed money for cars.

In a letter dated 17th January obtained by ChimpReports, ambulance the MPs said they are entitled to new cars and the deferment of their money is adversely affecting their legislative duties.

“We, viagra order the undersigned members of the 10th Parliament, hereby log in a petition to your attention and the entire Commission over failure to transfer funds for purchase of vehicles as duly entitled,” part of the petition read.

According to the 31 members, ministers who are not elected MPs have also got money for cars even when their ministries have already provided them with cars.

“It has come to our attention that ex-officials who are already provided for by their sector dockets and do not represent any constituency have been paid.”

Parliament gave each MP partial payment of Shs100m for buying cars but those facing election petition cases were deferred pending the conclusion of their matters before the Court of Appeal.

Ministry of Finance is said to have given Parliament money for all the 431 MPs.

Half of the MPs with election petitions under unexplained circumstances have already got car money while the remaining 31 that include former Finance State Minister, Aston Kajara haven’t.

The MPs want Kadaga to authorize the transfer of their car money to their respective bank accounts.

Some of the 31 members are Paul Amoru of Dokolo North, Ngabirano Charles of Rwampara, Ngabirano Charles of Rwampara County, Amongin Jacqueline of Ngora district among others.

When contacted on phone, Parliament’s Director for Communications and Public Affairs, Chris Obore promised to get back to us.
