06 Dec 2023

KAMPALA: MPs who will represent Uganda at the East African Games in Rwanda will be paid $720 (about sh2.7m) as per diem.

This was revealed by Speaker Anita Among during plenary on Wednesday.

Close to 200 MPs and parliamentary staff will be travelling to Kigali to take part in the regional games with counterparts from other East African Community countries.

Among warned the MPs against sleeping in cheap hotels, saying the US$720 (Shs2,719,602) that they will earn as per diem should be enough to get them a decent hotels, instead of camping in cheat hotels of US$20 (Shs75,533).

“I want to encourage MPs that as you go there, represent Uganda well in terms of discipline. I am giving you money, US$ 720 per day and you go and sleep in a room of US$20,” Among said.

“That is unacceptable for a Member of Parliament, members go and represent us well, represent us well, don’t go and live in a miserable way,” she added.
