Opposition party National Unity Platform (NUP) has revealed that at least Shs1 million will be slashed off from each party MP’s Shs200 Million received from the government to buy brand new cars.
The party said the money will go to the party to facilitate a string of services which include the construction of party offices.
In an interview with our reporter, opposition Chief Whip, John Baptist Nambeshe indicated that the NUP party lawmakers had voluntarily resolved to commit at least Shs1M to finance party activities including building party offices.
Nambeshe also Manjiya County MP declined to divulge details of the structure to be built and only said they shall cross the bridge when they come to it.
On Wednesday, the Director to Parliament told Endigyito radio that the government had availed funds to the legislative arm to facilitate each of the 529 MPs and the 21 Ex- officios to purchase brand cars.
The NUP party which currently comprises the majority opposition MPs in parliament has its offices headquartered at Kyagulanyi’s premises in Kamwokya.
This, according to Nambeshe is unfair to Bobi Wine since the premises that house the party offices are personal structures that would be used to generate personal incomes.
