The members of the committee who were authorized to take up the responsibility of inspecting the new 9 tax bills, disagreed the resolution on both social media and mobile money transaction tax which was to maintain the current State of affairs.
The agitated lawmakers have also challenged the record of the proceedings of the house on both taxes which the majority of lawmakers supported the bill contrary to their election.
While Ugandan people continue to cause chaos on both the government and the parliament over the newly introduced taxes, confidential matters in both parliament and finance committee at the back of implementing the contentious taxes were disclosed.
Mobile Money and Social Media tax brought chaos!
To members of committee, Ssemakula Luttamaguzi of Nakaseke South including others, the section in the report proposing the initiation of taxes on both mobile money transaction and social media was just being sneaked into the report which was introduced before August meeting.
Not only the chairperson of the committee, Musasizi Henry who’s criticized for sneaking into the report, but also Jacob Oulanya, the current deputy speaker who was spotted silencing the voices of representatives who were opposing these newly introduced taxes.
In that parliamentary sitting, MPs who attended and managed to testify their statements included, Ssemakula Luttamaguzi, Wabedde Sizomu of Bungokho North, Lufafa Nelson of Butembe County, Ssewungu Joseph of Kalungu West and Ogong Felix Okot of Dokolo South, according to Nile Post.
