Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has shot Members of Parliament for apportioning themselves a sum of 10bn Ugandan shillings ($2.6m; £2m) to bring issues to light on coronavirus.
The president said it was “ethically unpardonable” for the MPs to apportion themselves the sum as opposed to financing locale advisory groups made for that reason.
“At the point when I met with the Speaker, I disclosed to her they ought to escape that trap and the most ideal approach to do it is by not spending this cash on themselves. I concurred with the Speaker to give that cash to the region teams,” he said.
President Museveni said he would keep in touch with the Auditor General to examine MPs who have just gone through the cash to purchase alleviation things for their constituents.
The president had restricted people from conveying alleviation things and encouraged the individuals who wish to do as such to give the things to the region panels to abstain from social occasion of groups.
A restriction MP, Francis Zaake, was captured a week ago for conveying nourishment to his constituents, in spite of the rules yet President Museveni says the standard ought to apply to all MPs not only those in resistance.
Uganda has so far affirmed 79 instances of coronavirus. The nation is on a lockdown that closes on 5 May.
