WHAT IS THE ACCOUNTABILITY OF OVER SHS 2 BN WHICH THE LEADER OF OPPOSITION GETS FROM PARLIAMENT?
Hon. Mafabi, the leader of opposition in Uganda’s Parliament is a very powerful man. Following the changes made in the holders of the various Shadow Ministries, the Democratic Party has come head on with Mafabi over his methods of work, more so, on making appointments involving their party members without first seeking the views of the Democratic Party, which the Party Secretary General; Matia Nsubuga says their party cannot stomach, and that non of their members will take up the given appointments. The Secretary General of the Democratic Party has gone a step further to inform the public that the leader of the Opposition in Parliament has a budget of over shs 2 bn, and that it is as if this money is meant for FDC activities. Surely, the Opposition in Parliament cannot sit back and one party enjoys a budget so big up to over shs 2 bn. William Kituuka Kiwanuka
