Speaker Condemns Minister Of Finance For Failing To Release Money For Elections In the New Districts

Parliament has called back and put to task the minister of finance to explain why he has not yet released the money for elections in the newly created districts. This came about when Tom Butime the minister for local government reported to parliament that he had made arrangements for the elections only to be disappointed by the minister of finance.

The speaker was displeased by the report stating that they should not step on Ugandans constitutional rights of choosing their leaders. MPs condemned the government’s act of creating new districts that it is not ready to fund.

The minister who failed to articulate his points clearly disappointed Sarah Nakawunde Kiboga MP, and Lutamaguzi the Nakaseke MP advised the government to borrow money as it has always done so that elections can take place in the new districts.
