Ministers And MPs Will Never Feel The Pressure Of High Prices – Solomon Serwanjja

Former NBS Journalist, Solomon Serwanjja, has said Ministers and MPs will never feel the pressure of high prices. He says there is no way they can feel the pinch because they get everything on a silver plate.

“When will the President and ministers feel the pressure when they don’t even know the price of fuel. Is there a day when there’s no bread at State House? When will the MPs feel the pressure when every day there are samosas at Parliament?”

However, Sabiti Joseph, a former journalist at NBS TV too said despite what Solomon thinks, the whole Parliament is on pressure to handle the current economic crisis.

“The pressures on the skyrocketing prices are reaching Parliament. We are all looking at where Minister Matia Kasaija and Ramathan Ggoobi sit. Ultimately, it will go back to the President and the Ministry of Finance. Every arm of government must be on its toes to fix this issue.”

Solomon, however, didn’t agree with this saying unlike other governments, here so far nothing has been done to deal with the ongoing crisis.

“Currently, every government is looking at what they can do to help their citizens. Every time there’s such a crisis, we talk about reserves, but what has the government done? We are in a crisis. Things are not normal. A fiscal policy to reduce taxes on fuel would be needed. Put money into the economy. The state needs to pay attention to the problem.”
