“The arrangement has changed, now each member shall get Shs2m per parish. This means some MPs whose constituents have many parishes will end up receiving over shs100m each,” said a source who preferred anonymity as he is not authorized to speak to press.

A senior party official separately revealed MPs discovered shs4m for each sub county was not enough “therefore members agreed to concentrate on smaller units of parishes. Imagine a whole honorable handling a whole Sub County with only Shs4m? This would not be adequate and the new change is suitable for dismantling the propaganda planted by those who want to stand against President Museveni.”

The office of the Chief Whip is expected to deposit the money on members’ bank accounts anytime soon to cover at least 5,000 parishes across the country.

It remains unclear whether Women MPs and special interest groups will receive more money for areas already captured under this initiative.

Contacted, the Chief Whip Justine Kasule Lumumba denied knowledge about the latest development, saying the party is “yet to conclude on creating committees in parishes which shall converge at the Sub Counties when the project commences.”

She added: “We haven’t resolved anything yet.”

Two weeks ago the same caucus asked media houses and mainly the government owned newspaper, New Vision not only to stop reporting about caucus meetings without official approval but even to apologize to the body.

The much publicized Kyankwanzi resolutions endorsed the party chairman Museveni as the only flag bearer for 2016 elections. The caucus retreat that sat for a solid 10 days from at the National

Leadership Institute Kyankwanzi in February unanimously agreed and fronted Museveni in a resolution signed by over 200 members.

The move came against the backdrop of fears that Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi intended to challenge Museveni for president in 2016.

Mbabazi has since clarified that he has not mobilized to contest for the highest political office in the land but quickly added he has a right to stand for any elective position in the country.

The conflicting statements from a hitherto loyal servant of the President have since raised eyebrows among Museveni’s strategists.

In what was perceived as a move to clip his wings, NRM recently appointed the youthful Richard Todwong as the party’s head of mobilisation under the Secretary General’s office.

Mbabazi welcomed the appointment, saying a lot of distortion had featured in the media insinuating that there was rivalry between him and Todwong.

He clarified that, there was no disagreement to the fact that the Party Secretary General who is also Prime Minister, requires support to execute his duties diligently.

“My schedule as Prime Minister and leader of Government business in Parliament involves a lot of work and it’s the reason Todwong was appointed as Minister without portfolio in charge of mobilization, to assist the Secretary General of the NRM party,” he clarified, adding that Todwong has not replaced him.
