Meanwhile, Buwekula south Mp Museveni Ndori who has decried the lockdown which has affected his areas has also supported the upgrading of the road sectors, especially on highways.

 Rubbo north Mp Naboth Namanya is opposed to the government over prioritizing venturing money into security which has been allocated the lion's share saying this has a direct impact on the economy.

In a related development Baale county, Mp Charles Tebandeke has asked fellow colleagues to be vigilant while allocating resources. He also cited the current situation shortfall in the budget where there have been unclassified budgets that have been allocated the defense yet the country is suffering from inflation.
But Namayingo woman Mp Marget Makoha demands more allocation to be on security and education asking government to scale up vocational training.
But the chairperson of the education committee John Ntamuhirwa says the committee has to first present the sports law before handling the budget process.
