NUP Legislators To Donate Money for MPs’ Cars To Party

By Ivan Mwine

Members of Parliament belonging to the National Unity Platform (NUP), which is led by former presidential aspirant Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine, have agreed to donate to their party part of the money that was given to all MPs by government to buy cars.

The government through the Ministry of Finance this week extended Shs200M to every MP in the 11th Parliament which they will use to buy official vehicles.

However, according to Nakawa West MP Joel Ssenyonyi, who is also the NUP spokesperson, the 57 party MPs have all unanimously agreed to surrender Shs10m out of the money they received, meaning that in the end NUP would have collected at least Shs557m.

“It is a decision we took as a party that we shall use our offices to raise funds that will run NUP,” Ssenyonyi told the media.

He added that; “All party members are doing this voluntarily, whereby no one is being forced to part with this money and like we earlier agreed, we shall use all available channels to raise funds for the party because NUP needs money to operate.”  

However, by press time Ssenyonyi had not yet revealed how many NUP leaning legislators had deposited the said money on the party account.

It is also not yet clear whether parliament will not hold them accountable for diverting part of the  money that was given them to buy official vehicles to financing NUP political activities.
