Veteran NRM Cadre, Captain Francis Babu has said if it were up to him, Parliament would have only 200 MPs. According to him, 500 MPs are unnecessary.
He says this is only increasing expenditures and yet now more than ever, government needs to be careful how it spends. A number of people seemed to agree with him on social media in this regard.
“Two hundred is feasible, the economy will remain functioning. We will tackle corruption and financial resources will be saved to address Poverty by bringing it to zero among other things. The over 10,000 leaders in the electoral system at other levels are enough to legislate and manage policy issues. 500 MPS is a number too big. A lean parliament is good for our economy.” A one Tumusa Kasereka said.
Francis Babu said this while reacting to the teachers who are demanding salary increments. He says such issues wouldn’t be arising if there was not much to spend on as a country. He advised that if government wants to cater for teachers, there should be a source of income.
“If you want to pay a teacher, you have got to have a source of income to pay them. Just like in a home, you need to have a source of income to pay your helper. We are having a problem with priorities. We need to live within our means.”
