There is outrage in Uganda over the country’s government attempt to give each Member of Parliament (MP) $54,000 to buy a car.

Local media reports monitored by African Entertainment revealed that the government is seeking to give the amount to each MP at a time it is seeking funding from donors to help it buy COVID-19 vaccines.

But Uganda’s parliament director of communications, Chris Obore, is reported to have announced that MPs need tough vehicles to negotiate bad roads when visiting far-off villages in their constituencies.
