INDUSTRIAL ACTION LIKE THE ONE OF UNATU IS DUE TO NATIONAL LEADERS BEING MYOPIC AND INDIFFERENT
When you look at an increment 36 new members to the forthcoming Parliament of Uganda, given the other demands on the economy, you simply understand that our leaders are myopic, with wrong and selfish priorities. If the taxpayer spends about shs 25m per MP, 36 MPs in one year cost not less than 10,800,000,000 and when you add on a car of about shs 100m another shs 3,600,000,000. When you have a Government that is concerned about the welfare of the Public Servants, at least a 10% increment that teachers were promised could have a good boost from over 14bn that the 36 MPs will get from the consolidated fund. Modern management does not call for sub dividing units, but instead making them bigger. In Uganda we need to have a given population represented as the scientific approach not the current fake way. I think the strike for better pay by UNATU as 2nd term starts is a worthy action to the insensitive Government.
