Fury As FDC Youths Demand LoP Winnie Kiiza Sacking
Youths from Uganda’s main opposition political party, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) want the Leader of Opposition in parliament, Winfred Kiiza, sacked for keeping quiet over what they termed extravagant spending by Parliament.
They accuse Kiiza of not speaking out against plans by parliament to spend Shs84 billion to buy cars for MPs while Shs68 million has been earmarked for burial of each legislator in case they die while still in the House.
Early this week, parliament debated modalities to ensure that lawmakers who die are given befitting burials.Red Pepper Online has learnt that Parliament had budgeted for an estimated five deaths in this year. The amount to be spent on funerals thus hovers around 338,000,000 shillings.
