They particularly demand that the leader of opposition in Parliament Wafula Oguttu be summoned to substantiate claims he made in relation to the cash deal.

The money that is reportedly channeled through the office of the Government chief whip has been shared by both members of the ruling party-NRM and opposition groups.

Wafula Oguttu recently confirmed that up to 18 opposition legislators are being investigated for taking a share of the loot whose source is still doubted.

The cash bonanza has since been codenamed Article 110 in the corridors of Parliament derived from the share each member is taking home, although the article in the constitution relates to emergencies.

According to Wafula, the beneficiaries are advised not to bank the money in an attempt by the NRM to evade the law. The Anti-Money Laundering Act requires anyone to declare the source of any funding above Ugx 20m.

But Justine Kasule Lumumba, the Government Chief whip describes the statements as baseless and uncorroborated. As such she demands that the matter be taken up by the Rules committee so that persons trading malicious accusations cane be dealt with accordingly.

Lumumba told journalists at parliament this afternoon that the request for an investigation will be tabled as soon as parliament opens up for business.
