NUP To Cut Shs1m From MPs’ Shs200m To Finance Headquarters

The National Unity Platform(NUP) has revealed that it will be slashing at least a Shs1million off each party MP’s Shs200m.

The MPs received this money from the government to enable them to purchase vehicles.

NUP said the party will use this money to finance a string of services which include the construction of party offices.

The Chief Whip of opposition, Mr. John Baptist Nambeshe, in an interview said NUP lawmakers voluntarily resolved to contribute the money.

‘’The members themselves so wished that as a party that is leading in parliament and is hardly a year-old in Parliament, we need to demonstrate maturity by acquiring our own property. And for that reason we resolved that this fundraising be done,’’ Mr. Nambeshe said.

He also added that this has nothing to do with the party superior Mr. Kyagulanyi compelling one to pay a certain amount.

He also added that for the love of his party, if this money comes through, he will even contribute Shs100 million.

Considering that NUP MPs agreed that part of their money will be used for the construction of party premises, they will not get the whole amount.

Currently, the NUP party headquarters are located at Mr. Kyagulanyi’s premises in Kamwokya. According to Mr. Nambeshe, this is unfair to Mr. Kyagulanyi.

This is because the location of the headquarters is home to Kyagulanyi’s personal structures. He should be using this to earn personal income.
