MPs recalled from recess

Must read

The Clerk to Parliament, Adolf Mwesige, has recalled MPs from recess to handle the urgent matter of exorbitant expenditure at the house.

The recall of MPs follows a section of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) MPs led by Lwemiyaga County legislator Theodore Ssekikubo and Buyaga West counterpart Barnabas Tinkasimire who joined the opposition in demanding for the immediate summon of members from recess over the ongoing exhibition that revealed exorbitant expenditure at the August House.

“During the sixteenth sitting of the third meeting of the third session of the eleventh parliament held on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, the speaker adjourned the house sine die. This is therefore to inform you that the plenary sittings will resume tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.,” Adolf said.

Eagle Online has, however, learnt that the MPs will be discussing ministerial policy statements tabled by various ministries.

Led by social media activists led by Dr. Spire Ssentengo and the journalist Agatha Atuhaire, who leaked documents showing the alleged exorbitant sums of months pocketed by the speaker, Anita Among, in the name of per diem, cooperation, social responsibility, and others.

The funds were being deposited in various accounts of the parliamentary staff. The exhibition revealed that several MPs claimed per diem for the same activity from Parliament and the National Council of Sports.

It further showed that the speaker received over Shs2.4 billion in a space of 39 days. The money that was received by Daniel Adilo and Okwi Emmanuel Emuron was reportedly meant to cater to field mobilization activities, her outreach activities, community consultation activities, and others.

It also showed that she pocketed, per diem, Shs2.6 billion for the eight trips she made out of the country between September 2023 and January 2024. She also received a per diem of Shs646 million between July 2022 and July 2023.

In a period of four days from October 11, 2023, to October 16, 2023, Shs2,673,000,000 was put into a personal bank account, which included that of Chris Obore, the Director of Communications at Parliament.
