NUP Seeks Transparency In Registration Of Covid-19 Relief Recipients

The women league at NUP has demanded transparency in the registration of the Covid19 relief recipients. They held a press conference at Hotel Africana in Kampala on Monday.

During this conference, the chairperson of the Kyeyune Zone in Kabalagala, Caroline Nanvuma, highlighted the 595 residents in her zone. Nanvuma said out of all those, only 29 people appeared on the covid-19 relief fund list.

She added that of the 29, she only knows three. She also complained of the limited time to fill the list of vulnerable people.

The chairperson of the women’s league, Flavia Kalule the Kassanda Woman MP said everyone felt the effects of the lockdown.

‘’It is meaningless if only a few people benefit from the relief fund and others don’t. Why give a few people the help and leave out the majority?’’ she posed a question.

She also added that about 95% of the country’s population relies on the informal sector. They live on day-to-day savings.

She suggested that government needs to increase the support given to struggling households by increasing the proposed relief funds. She said government should double the money from Shs100, 000 to Shs200, 000.

Hon Flavia also noted that the government had taken forever to deliver the promised aid to the people.

She said this has begun to frustrate families that are trying to sustain themselves hence emphasizing the need to send the relief immediately.
